Instructor: Adrianne Baron

Adrianne has taught high school and college biology and has a master's degree in cancer biology.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this lesson students will be able to:

  • define navigation design
  • describe the patterns used in website design
  • explain the purpose and use of website and navigation design tools


1.5 - 2 hours

Curriculum Standards


Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks; analyze the specific results based on explanations in the text.


Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 11-12 texts and topics.


Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.

  • Student computers (enough for each group of 2 - 3 students)
  • Computer with projector
  • Transparencies demonstrating the patterns and tools used in website navigation design
