Getting to Know Lesson Components

Here is a brief breakdown of everything you can add to your lessons as you build them out.

In the course of building a lesson plan, you'll find the Wabisabi interface provides you with many different options to use in giving your units substance. Below is a brief look at each of these components and how they can be used in your plan.


1. Publish/Unpublish Button

Basically, you decide when you want your lesson to be visible. With one click you can publish it for the whole Wabisabi community to see and enjoy, or you can keep it unpublished while you perfect it.

2. Learning Intentions

This is a section you can add (shown in the image) that lets you customize your own intended learning outcomes and the success criteria by which you'll measure them.

3. Essential Question

Adding an essential question module gives you a blank space in which you can write an essential question to pose to your students for beginning the quest for learning. 

Here is a good starter article on how to write your best essential questions. We also recommend taking a look at the helpful Essential Questions guides in our resourcessection.

4. Blank Component

This provides you with a blank section in which you can type text and style it using headers, text formatting, and lists. You can also embed video, images, and URL links.

5. List Component

Use this feature to place a custom list anywhere you need one in your lesson. Give it a title, type each list item, and click on Add to List to build it.

6. Section Header

This provides you with a header that has an image background, and you can type a title into it to break your unit up into sections.

7. Use the Fluenices

Those who are familiar with applying the Essential Fluencies can add one or more of their choice to their lesson plan. Clicking on a fluency to add it to your plan automatically adds blank sections to your unit that are titled with each specific stage of that particular fluency.
