Through teaching and discussing the various purposes of writing, and focusing our attention on the purpose and the characteristics
of well organized informative text, students will show they can be experts on a topic of their choice by applying what they learn to
create their own piece of informative text, which they can then, for the purpose of gaining further insight, share with one another.

Lesson Plan Reflection (if lesson is carried out)

An analysis of what worked, what could be changed, and the next steps for teaching
What changes would you make to your instructionfor the whole class and/or for students who needed greater
support or challengeto better support student learning?
oWhy do you think these changes would improve student learning? Support your explanation
with evidence of student learning AND principles from theory, recommended practices, and/or research.
Based on your reflection and your analysis of student learning, describe the next steps for instruction to support
students learning.

I feel as though my lesson went really well. I got the students up and moving and was able to have them use text structures to
organize their thoughts on who they are thankful for.
Some things I would possibly change would be to talk more as a group of ideas they would have for a title to their book. They
could also share different hook ideas for their writing.
One suggestion that was made to me by my field supervisor would be to have the student share with a partner or as a table
group their writing. I disagree because it is a personal writing for the students that I do not feel needs to be shared with their peers.
Grammatical errors will be revised by the teachers (myself).
When I return to class the students will have their drafts written and revised. I will then work with the students on creating
their Thankful Book for the person they are thankful for.
