=== Connection to The Process:  ===

Each lesson will emphasize a primary “step” in The Process. 

=== Introduction:  ===

(''A brief explanation of how to initiate a lesson. Includes an engaging question or activity.'') 


=== Activities:  ===

''(Formalized games, art projects, formal discussions, etc. that support the objectives.)'' 


=== Duration:<br>  ===

''(Each part of the lesson should include the approximate time it takes to lead that component. This is specifically for the content, not the entire experience. For example, the content of a lesson on Abiotics may only take 35 minutes if taught all in one sitting, like in a classroom. However, if the instructor is teaching along a hike with students, the entire experience (content and hike) may take 3 hours. )'' 


=== Assessments:<br>  ===

''(Broken down into formative and summative, assessments help guide the teaching to tailor the instruction to the students’ needs and tell us if we met the objectives. Formative assessments are at the beginning of the lesson and answer the question “what do the students know coming into this lesson?” Summative assessments are at the end of the lesson and answer the question “can the students achieve the objectives?” Assessments can be simple questions or planned activities. )'' 


=== Summary:  ===

''A time for students to review the information, make connections to other information or experiences from school and/or SOP, and ask questions to begin the transfer of knowledge to their home communities. ''
