To provide practice writing blog posts in the context of giving advice.
To give practice on depth of appropriacy and form regarding different exponents of giving advice.
To introduce functional exponents of advising for and against doing something as well as introducing reasons why or why not.
Procedure (45-45 minutes)
I will propose two questions Do you like giving advice? When you give advice is it usually written or spoken?
I will provide a sample of what's to be modeled later. I will present a written blog on my shared screen and have several students read paragraph by paragraph aloud, nominating one another.
I will present some useful vocabulary, e.g. advising for and against whatever idea is written about, as well as the rationale behind whatever idea. This is where MFA is covered. This is accomplished on Google Slides.
Students will write on a Google Slides document, each student will be assigned a slide with their name on it, to start writing their own small version of a blog on some sort of advice.
I will give feedback on selected writings from the productive task, followed by DEC for other errors picked up on during our lesson.
