I have an interview on Monday. I am doing a lesson on instruction texts, creating a recipe for making pancakes. My learning objectives are as follows: 1. To be able to listen to and follow instructions carefully. 2. To be able to write a set of instructions using appropriate form and features. 3. To be able to evaluate instructions for purpose, organisation layout, clarity and usefulness. I have a video clip to show how, when cooking, if instructions are wrong, it can be a disastrous. I also have paper plates on which they can write their final recipes and then bring them home to make on tuesday. I am unsure of what to do to assess their learning at the start of the lesson and in what way to organise the classroom activity. I have made a who wants to be a millionaire quiz but I was hoping to use this at the end of the lesson as a form of assessment. The prior learning assessment will have to be quick, so as to start the main activity. I was thinking of a think pair share activity so I could observe chat and tailor the rest of the lesson -any ideas? In terms of the main structure of the lesson I was thinking of preparing picture resources of the steps of making a pancake and muddle them on the floor - with the children all in a circle around me. As a class we would then put them in order and think of the kinds of language we need to use when using instructions? Help will be greatly appreciated, in addition, in general will I ask the children to go to their literacy tables in undertaking the activity and use their talk partner for guidance?
