Prerequisite Resources

userEducatorTime6 minutes

Use these resources to help your students complete prerequisites. Many of Xello's Lessons have prerequisite activities that students must complete before they can start the lesson. For example, in order to start the Schools Subjects at Work lesson, students must have saved at least three careers before they can begin the Xello Lesson.

By completing the prerequisites, Xello Lessons are personalised to each individual student based on their likes, interests, saved careers and more. This helps them to understand and reflect on content that is meaningful to them.

Prerequisites can also be added to custom lessons and assignments for your students to complete. Some of the resources below might help with those added prerequisites.

In addition to the lesson plans that correspond with a Xello Lesson prerequisite, have your students complete the Introduction to About Menew tab activity at the beginning of each school year. Encourage them to reflect on and update their Experiences, Skills, and Interests. Help your students maintain their self-knowledge as they learn and grow.

TipTip: These prerequisite plans work well in tandem with our Lesson Resources. These resources include discussion prompts, vocabulary, and pre- and post-Lesson activities.
