News Paper Towers: Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir

Throughout the year I will be updating my Manaiakalani Google Class OnAir site with links to my planning, resources, reflections, videos of my teaching, and links to the learners work on their blogs. There are 7 Manaiakalani teachers from various schools and levels for you to check out. It's 21st century window into our classrooms. 
Check out the whole ClassOnAir site here.

Here's  a preview of my latest lesson.

News Paper Towers

Direct Instruction 
The learning intention for this lesson was to learn what was required for a piece of recount writing. The video shows the same lesson taking shape over three days. The direct instruction section takes place on the second day. You can see that I am summarising the work that we completed the day before, and modelling how I would like the next paragraphs to be written. Much of what I am talking about, i.e. the complex and simple sentences, are things we have worked on previously. Instead I am simply reminding the learners what they mean, and re-explaining why we use them.
