  • How to use this template

    In designing lessons, it helps to work backwards from the goal:

    1. Set goal with SWBAT
    2. Find status quo
    3. Use SWBAT and status quo to find motivation.

    When presenting lessons, move in the opposite direction:

    1. Find the motivation.
    2. Build incrementally from status quo via most direct path.
    3. Until your students are able to do what you set as a SWBAT goal.
