Castaway - Writing: 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.

Writing Lesson - Castaway

Direct Instruction
The learning intention for this lesson was to write from the 1st person. I also wanted them to start thinking through design, materials, and outcomes for technology without seeming like they were doing so. The video shows the set up for the writing, and the second paragraph. They kids were asked to brainstorm and then write about what kinds of resources they could find on the island, and how they would use them to build some kind of shelter.
