  • A HyperDoc is a digital document—such as a Google Doc—where all the parts of a lesson or multiple lessons have been pulled together into one main location. Within this single document, students are provided with hyperlinks to all of the resources they need to complete a variety of tasks and engage themselves in the learning.

  • How to Build a HyperDoc Lesson – Parts of a HyperDoc
  • Many HyperDocs follow this basic template that takes students through six steps of a lesson:
  • Engage: Hook your students, get them engaged, and activate prior knowledge. You might use a fun video, interactive website, or audio recording.
  • Explore: Link resources, such as videos or articles, for students to explore more information.
  • Explain: Clarify the learning objective for your students. This is where you could teach a whole group lesson with direct instruction, or add additional resources for students to explore.
  • Apply: What do you want students to create to demonstrate their learning? Give instructions for the assignment.
  • Share: Provide a way for students to share their work and receive feedback.
  • Reflect: Pause for reflection (whole class, think-pair-share, etc.) or link them to a digital way to share their thoughts.
  • Extend: This portion is great for early finishers. Provide extra activities, additional online resources, or challenge them with an extension assignment to extend their thinking.
