This is my reflection in this week.
1. I try to make a lesson plan for my Teaching Learning Process. The overall lesson plan is almost similar to the lesson plan I usually use, but there is something I have to add. That is the use of online materials for enrichment and that I have to relate it to National Education Technology Standards for Students (NETS•S). The teaching learning itself is conducted in classroom mediated with some computers. I also try to revise the way I set the objectives to ABCD model suggested by Robert.
2. I read Krajka’s article on using the Internet in ESL Writing Instruction.
I find that there are many activities we can make using Internet:
a. Making a Letter to a Friend using www.marlo.com/card.htm
b. Making a Formal Letter
c. Making Biography with some samples form http://www.imdb.com/, http://www.bham.wednet.edu/bio/biomaker.htm or http://www.gms.ocps.k12.fl.us/biopage/bio.html
d. Making a description of a Person using “Wanted” game.
e. Making an argumentative Essay on some topics from http://www.ohiou.edu/esl/project/index.html
f. Making Notices and Advertisement by using some online newspapers.
g. Making description on a Festival of ceremony
h. Making description of a book, film or play.
i. Making a Newspaper report
j. Making a personal opinion essay
k. Describing Places
3. Liang’s article is also very useful for employing internet in classroom activities. The activities that can be conducted are:
a. Choosing Books
b. Reading and Sharing Books
c. Evaluating Books
There are also procedures that can guide us in conducting those activities..
