Direct Instruction

The learning intention for this lesson was for the children to work collaboratively to understand what a flight attendant was. They would then create a movie as if they were flight attendants on their very own 'Pt England Airways'

The video shows a reading lesson where the learners are focusing on the discussion before creating a movie.

Extended Plan Here


Looking back at the video I had a few more technical difficulties the audio is a little bit out from the video and I'm unsure why that is. The sound quality is a whole lot better. I have forgotten about giving the learners 'wait time' in this lesson something I need to fix. Still working out the best angles to teach a small group lesson so you are able to see all the learners. I feel like its becoming more natural filming myself, I realise that I still move around a lot and get distracted throughout the lesson though. My learners are becoming a lot more natural with the camera being on them, even when I'm not filming I've put the camera out just so the children are more familiar with the camera being on.

Things to note

The camera that was facing me goes very blurry at parts and cut out during the lesson, hence the one angle at the end of the movie. I've changed one of the settings on thee camera so it should get better in the next episode. I realised I continued asking the same students for the answers. The learners filmed and edited the whole movie.
