Post Secondary Lesson Plan
Below is an example of a lesson plan that could be used at the post secondary school level, either college or graduate school. It is an example of how teachers can incorporate Evernote into a lesson plan.
Classifying Leaves to Determine their Trees
Objective 
Each student will be able to distinguish between leaves and correctly identify the tree they came from with an accuracy of 85% or higher. The students will have an assessment quiz requiring them to identify certain characteristics of leaves and also name the trees provided based on their characteristics. 
Learning Environment 
The students will learn the notes on leaf characteristics and take the practice quizzes in a typical science lab classroom. The teacher will put up the notes and pictures on a projection screen; the students will take the practice quizzes at computers. For the actual graded quiz, the students will go to a forest with trees labeled so they know which leaves' characteristics to observe. There should be about five trees to identify, with a characteristic question for each, making a total of a ten question quiz. 
Description of Students 
The students participating in this lesson will be in a college level science course. Each student should generally be between eighteen and twentytwo years old and enrolled in a biology class. 
Standards 
N/A 
Materials 

Procedure 
1. Prior to the lesson, the teacher would need to take the pictures needed to cover during the lesson and save and organize the pictures into Evernote. 
Application 
Each student will be given two charts for the lesson. One will help lead them to the tree name based on leaf and bark characteristics. The other will act as notes to show them the basic differences between leaves. 
Evaluation 
Each student will need to print out five completed practice quizzes. The students will receive up to five participation points for completing them, one point for each practice quiz. The students will not receive more than five points, but they are encouraged to take the practice quizzes as many times as they feel necessary for them to learn the material. The class following the discussion, the students will take a quiz that will be graded for accuracy. The quiz will ask leaf characteristic questions based on the pictures and charts that were presented in Evernote and discussed in class. There will also be a question per tree asking the student to name the tree. Each student will be expected to complete the quiz individually and pass it with 85% accuracy or higher.
