Innovate and Try #2

Following on from the use of a mentor text I knew that collaboration was the safety net needed to preserve the student self efficacy that was beginning to emerge. The series of photos below reflect the learning pathway we followed to strengthen our connections to the learning and stem from some of the ideas suggested by Aaron Wilson to help break down the barriers my target group have of not knowing what to write.


Retelling the mentor text using text maps


Using new or interesting vocabulary noticed in the mentor text to create word clines


Using the text maps and word clines to create a simple plan 


Using the plan to create a collaborative orientation


Implementing 5 -7 -10 timed writing challenge


Giving each other feedback and feed forward

All these images were snapshots of opportunities for learning talk to take place. I noticed there was no lull in the conversations as my learners took ownership of their new knowledge. The clip below shows some of the talk that helped my learners use their words in context.
