In particular, a worksheet that both sets up a learning module and resolves the lesson, should include elements that students might be expected to know prior to learning details as well as elements they can address properly after learning and practicing the concept or skill. It should be possible for students to recognize that they have made gains by being involved in the lesson. Therefore design the worksheet so their new abilities are clearly evident. In the case illustrated, the worksheets simply asks students “What important things do you notice in the video?” When done the second time students will find they make new, more expert observations about what is “important” in the video of a landslide happening.
