Planning lesson sequences
Course code: RG00316
For learning to occur deeply, students must connect ideas. Effective teachers recognise this when designing their lesson sequences: they connect new learning to prior understandings; they explore concepts logically in order for meaning to emerge; and they sequence activities to progress learning from a basic to a more complex skill level. This course aims to refine your skill in planning effective lesson sequences by taking you through the steps needed to create one.
