Direct Instruction:

This term, we have been focusing on sustainability and environmental problems in our literacy class. The learning intention for this episode was for students to share the valuable information they had learnt in the form of a public service announcement.

Extended Plan Here

Reflection: This was a very fun way for us to end the year while working in collaborative groups. I purposely gave a variety of PSAs as examples and did not choose any that were about a similar topic to the one we were exploring in class. Students had a lot of fun putting their learning together in this manner. However, it was a bit challenging to get everything completed as quickly as I hoped due to the number of interruptions that Term 4 presents in our Intermediate Block.
