The additions to this lesson plan that discuss the barriers and how they might be overcome is useful for the student teachers at my university to see.

This lesson does a nice job of hooking students into the activity right away. Not only is the actual hook interesting and engaging, but students are encouraged to help draft the rubric by which they will be assessed. This lesson also allows students to work with Web 2.0 technologies which could be used across their learning in other courses.

In this lesson, ELL students use online graphic organizers using Web 2.0, to prepare to write an expository piece, a how-to video on Voicethread. This lesson would great for non-ELL too! Students work collaboratively with help from peers and teacher. Students work with the teacher to create a rubric, allowing for them to fully understand what is expected of them. Knowing how to organize, plan, and compose expository writng is a very useful skill that can be applied to real-world performance.  The author applies UDL principles which discusses potential barriers and how they can be over-come which is very helpful for educators to use in their own classrooms.  Students will be motivated to do this activity through the use of common activites that are familiar to them and the opportunity to share their completed project with peers.  This is a well organized lesson plan that upper elementary teachers could use in their classrooms

 

Technical Remarks:

Students must have access to computers, Web 2.0, and Voicethread.

In this lesson, ELL students use online graphic organizers to prepare to write an expository piece, a how-to video on Voicethread.  Students work with the teacher to create a rubric, allowing for them to fully understand their expectations. The students would easily hooked by the "peanut butter and jelly" introduction, getting them excited to write a how-to. The steps of the lesson are easy to understand and would be used just as easily in a non-ELL environment. 

Technical Remarks:

Students must have access to Creatly or SchematicMind, and Voicethread. If access isn't available, other tools could be substituted.
