This lesson (intended for a 9-12 grade web-design class) that covers creating a professional webpage (equip with specific pieces like information forms and data collection) is very well planned from start to end. The intended goal for the students is made very clear and understandable for the age group. The author chooses to begin the lesson by activating background knowledge of the students by stimulating a class discussion about “good” and “poor” websites, and also asking for specific feelings about entering personal information into a form on a website. This sets the stage for the learners and by providing models of these sites on a large viewing screen illustrates the idea further through non-linguistic representation- allowing the audience to get a different, more visual feel for “good” verses “poor.”

By giving the audience with a general guideline for the creation of their website- that it has to be for a club or organization, the author supports the organization of the planning process, while at the same time allows the student for individual choice and autonomy in the specifics. This decision of the author will likely enhance the relevance and value of the assignment for the individual student. The author also makes note in the lesson to address the idea of the convenience of using an information form through an online website instead of having to use a paper form. I feel that the audience is likely to make a connection with this as it’s something that most all have experience doing in their own lives.

The teacher also chooses to make use of collaboration and communication in this lesson by allowing students to present their site to the class, as well as send it for evaluation to their teacher and classmates through email. Because the students will be assessing each other’s work, rating the ease of use of their sites, they will be given very realistic and thus mastery-oriented feedback. Overall, this lesson is one that is designed to be of great value to the audience- and it is one that has potential to allow students to meet personal expectations they may have set in the web-design course that they are taking.
