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.

Learning how to use Microsoft Word is a skill that every student needs to have throughout their lives for not only school but also their future jobs.  I think its great that you focus on how to use this program with your students because I'll admit there are still things on Word that I'm not even sure how to use.  What I really like about this lesson is that it will be useful and understandable to all your students.  Its great that you have the ability to connect one of the net books to a projector so the students have the ability to see what you're doing as you explain it.  Its also great that your students have computers at their disposal for this activity because their are many learners who need to not only see what you're doing but also do it on their as well in order to retain the information.
