• A body that discusses how the lesson was taught, including any preliminary preparation, details regarding implementation, and how student learning was assessed.
• A conclusion that includes such items as reflections on the success of the lesson in the classroom and possible ways the lesson might be modified for different situations.
• Appendices with any relevant handouts or other supporting materials, and a list of resources for students and teachers.

All submissions should include a cover sheet indicating the title of the lesson, the teacher’s name and title, the teacher’s institutional affiliation, and which category the lesson falls under: grades kindergarten through grade 8 or grades 9 through 12.
