We include clear, step-by-step instructions for how to teach the content, as well as variations you can use if you want to change the lesson around to better fit your classroom.
Below are ways to find and discover content. After learning how to find the content for your classroom you can learn how to use it.
Playlists, Modules and Activities
Activities are individual lessons that are designed to be completed in one session. Use activities for single day lessons.
Modules are a grouping of activities that form a unit together on the same topic. Each activity in a module may build on prior activities. Use a Module for activities that will span multiple sessions.
Playlists are also groupings of activities but are often longer and can be more diverse. Activities in a Playlist are usually self-contained on a similar topic. Use a Playlist for multiple sessions planned around a larger topic.
Find Content Using Search
Searching for content is the most efficient way to find content that fits your needs in the classroom. Mizzen categorizes and makes all its content searchable.
