Direct Instruction

The learning intention for this lesson was consider audience appeal when writing. Specifically for this task the learners were writing for a younger audience (Year 1 & 2's). Sticking to our theme for the term the story had to be about the Solar System and the Eight planets. To help plan what content should be in their stories we brainstormed collaboratively using a padlet.

Reflection
I think this lesson was a great "break" from the actual writing task, as due to the nature of the task it was becoming quite repetitive. The brainstorm discussion helped the learners to stop, and rethink what they should actually include in their story that would help younger kids learn about the eight planets and the solar system.  Although I had intended it to be a brain dump, later I wished I had structured it more so that the brainstorm was more useful.

Things to note
This was the third session for this writing task. A lot of the set up and some of the writing had already taken place prior to this session.
Once the writing was completed one story from each reading group was chosen, and the group co-illustrated it into a book.


Learning Site Content

Begin writing your story and attempt to structure your writing in a way that will appeal to younger kids.
