Timing:

Learning Experiences:
1. Introduction: (How will I engage the learners?)

10min

Begin by asking them the questions written up on the board (what is a


blog and what are they used for?) To facilitate a class discussion.
During class discussing make sure to ask the students questions to
expand on what their idea of a blog is.
Questions like
Do you think a blog might be used to spread awareness, and if so what
kind?
What age group do you think blogs the most?
What types of blogs do you think would be relevant to you?
Do you think blogs cater specific audience or age group
Make sure to have students elaborate on their answers asking them
further questions like, why do you think this or how did you come to this
conclusion?

2. Sequence of learning experiences: (What will you do to help the


students achieve the learning objectives? What tasks and activities will
the students be involved in to help achieve the learning objectives?)

After discussion split the students into 4 groups, giving them a topic each
to focus on, those topics being Fashion, Sport, Food and Lifestyle.
Than tell them to answer the questions on the board and brainstorm
things that relate to that topic.
These questions being
Who is the target audience for this blog?
What content would you blog about?
Where would you find the material to add to your type of blog?
When would this blog be relevant to people, when would they need to use
it? (Example finding a decent place to eat?)
Why would you make a blog like this?
Why would people use or follow your blog
How would you go about setting up a blog like this?
Ask students to generate there own questions 5 whats 1 how
Who, what, when, where, why, how

Then have them brainstorm any other ideas that relate to this blog

Once they have done this, have them swap the pieces of paper around
answering the same questions for different topics until they do a full
rotation.

Each group will spend 5 minutes on each topic.

20min

3. Sequence of learning experiences activity 2.


20 min

Then at the end of the rotation they are going to turn the sheets of paper
over and create their own blog coming up with
A topic to blog about
A Title for their blog
A target audience
And a purpose for their blog (what they hope to achieve or what message
they want to send to their target audience)

Each group will have a max of 10 minutes to prepare these blogs.

After they have written these down they will then present their blogs to us
telling us the title for their blog and describing the topic they are blogging
about, their target audience, and the purpose of their blog.

4. Lesson conclusion: (How will you summaries the learning and relate it
to the lesson objectives?)
10 min

After students have finished their presentations move on to the next


activity,
Express to the students that in their previous assignment their poems
were so diverse and different in topic and how they can use the same
inspiration and the same techniques that they used to create their poems
to create a different types of blogs.

Have students then spend 10 minutes drawing up a draft blog of their


own.

Then have them move on to the question generator for the end of the
class and have them pick a colour to generate a question to which the
whole class must answer before leaving by writing their answer down on a
sticky note, which they must then stick on a door before leaving the
classroom.
