Nobel Prize Lessons are six different lesson plans, one for each prize. They are a reliable material, that teachers easily can use, directly after the announcements of the Nobel Prizes.
The material is based on well established sources, and point to further reading from the prize-awarding institutions. Nobel Prize Lessons are some of many resources offered to teachers within the framework of Nobel Education Network.
Nobel Prize Lessons are reliable and so easy to use, that a teacher can look through the manual, watch the slides, print the texts for students and then start the class.
