Elementary Lesson to Using Microsoft Word

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Laura Rinehart (Teacher (K-12)), Mar 02, 2013

This lesson plan did a great job at hitting all the areas of the TPACK model.  As far as technology, it uses Microsoft word and teaches students how to do various things using word.  It is simple yet teaches many valuable things that students need to know.  Pedagogically, it uses scaffolding by starting with strategies in word then creating a final product of an essay.  As far as content, it teaches students how to use MLA format as well as write a persuasive essay.

An idea of something that could be added in the future would be having students use google docs to read other students’ essays or leave comments on them.  The teacher could also view them and leave comments.
