This lesson is actually just the capstone project for this course, in which you are free to design your own course module, based (as much or as loosely as you want) on one of the topics we covered in the earlier lessons of this course. I'd also like you to fill out the anonymous end-of-course survey. Your responses will help me improve the course for future students.

What will we learn in Lesson 8?

By the end of Lesson 8, you should be able to:

  • Reflect on the topics we've covered in this course.
  • Decide which parts of these topics are appropriate to teach to an audience of your choosing.
  • Write a lesson plan and learning objectives to teach your chosen topic to your chosen audience.
