Prerequisite Resources

userEducator Xello productXello 3-5 Time3 minutes

Use these resources to help your students complete the lesson prerequisites in Xello 3-5. For students in Xello 3-5, Lessons are called Missions and many have prerequisite activities that students must complete before they can start the Lesson. For example, before students can begin Mission: Skills, they need to have added 3 Skills to their About Me profile.

By completing the prerequisites, Xello Lessons are personalized to each individual student based on their interests, skills, saved careers, favorite school subjects 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 prerequisite, have your students complete the Introduction to About Me new tab activity at the beginning of each school year. Encourage them to reflect on and update their Achievements, 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.
