Manaiakalani Google ClassOnAir - Lesson 4 (Session 1 of 3)

Direct Instruction
This page will highlight on a set of 3 lessons that will focus on my Year 11 group as they complete their first standard for NCEA Level 1 DVC.
As the Year 11 students come into the room, they will be all gathered around the front table as a year group to discuss their particular tasks.
We will discuss as a group what we have to have completed by the end of next week (the end of term) and what they have to do in order for that to happen.
The students will then work independently, at their own pace, receiving support and instruction form me as they need it.

This video is the teacher instruction section at the start of the lesson on the 6th April. This was the introduction to a set of lessons over a few days.

Session 1 - 6th April

The really good thing about how we work in the class is that it gives me lots of time to give some quality one to one or small group work.
This video shows me working with Autymn who is ahead in the Year 11 group and needs to move on in Photoshop.
We had a good amount of time working together to remind her of some skills we had already covered so could go over again at some speed.

Autymn was kind enough to record her whole workflow today on Photoshop.
I have speeded up the recording so you can view it in approximately 6 minutes.

This short section is a view into the ongoing lesson as it happened This shows the rest of the class getting on with what they were set to do while I was working with individuals during the lesson.

Next Steps

Reflection and Analysis

What went well?

Thursday 6th April
All the students made a good start today on their final layout and most of them have a drawn grid completed.
Most of the group have their grids scanned in ready to download them tomorrow and get on to Photoshop.
One of the students got onto Photoshop today.
They were able to use their knowledge of their architect well when designing their layout grids.
My student who is expert at looking busy but not doing much worked really well today. Even the rest of the group noticed and were quizzing him about it. He said he has “changed”... we have just had student conferences with tutor teachers and parents so maybe this is the cause. It was good. I’ll take it.
The students did not run out of things to be focussed on in the double period (100 minutes) and were able to get on when the teacher was busy with the other year groups.

What did not go so well?

Thursday 6th April
Two of the girls do tend to just sit there and wait for me to go and nag them, but once i indicated what direction they should be going, they got on with it quite well. A couple of students did not have time to get their grids scanned today, but I can do that for them before the next lesson starts so they are ready to go.
