Why Hypertext Lesson Plans Are Higher Quality Than Linear Lesson Plans,
(Even For The Classroom Attendance Model)
Students can follow their most intense train of thought.
Mental orderliness is greater with hypertext lessons, and self-directedness.
Learning is easier if the student stays interested---paying attention.
The teacher is better prepared to take side tours to follow students' focus.
The same class room environment can be stimulating to many categories of learning speeds.
Slow learners won't feel left behind.
The mentally gifted can find enough extra topics to provide a challenge.
Teaching how to learn how to learn easier has priority over teaching them what to learn.
Hypertext lends itself to eventual long-distance learning courses and CD-ROMs.
Teachers can continue to earn after retirement, from royalties on their CD-ROM courses.
