Rationale for your lesson : My rationale for this lesson was to incorporate technology into a
lesson on descriptive writing and practice with writing prompts. This lesson could easily be
completed without the videos or the computer component but by having students interact with
multimedia writing prompts as well as engage in using computers during the warm up exercise it
is a lesson that meets ISTE-T standards and will help students become more acclimated with
technology and grow in their writing skills.

The sunset filled the entire sky with the deep color of rubies, setting
the clouds ablaze.
The waves crashed and danced along the shore, moving up and down
in a graceful and gentle rhythm like they were dancing.
Our old car puffed as Main Street became clogged with a line of
clamoring motorists.
Racing down an empty hall, she skidded into the classroom,
breathless, just as the bell clanged above her.
