Reflection

The learners loved working together and enjoyed the challenge of recalling the recipe and adding detail. They struggled with the style of writing and many found it hard to think of their audience as they wrote. This writing lesson had a lot of discuss which was great for oral language building but did detract from the length of student writing.

Thing to note:

I tried some more student focused camera angles in this lesson and I am not sure they work as well as I would have liked.
