Draft of Online Lesson – Week 9

This is a Prezi and if you don’t care for the movement on the screen, please do not explore.

My rough draft is embedded below. I have yet to add audio. I keep deconstructing because I am not ever satisfied.smile I tried hard to consider PARC. But what really influenced me was Robert Duke’s speech. I have always been a backwards planner (or so I thought) and yet when he spoke about teaching a kid to drive and mentioned the key aspect, I realized some of my best lessons were truly flawed.

I spent a great deal of this week deconstructing how I have ever taught speech. Adding the text’s notes about teaching online differently from the classroom, I really put thought into how someone could navigate the journey on their own.

Again, this is a rough draft and it is by no means done. I don’t have the rubrics built or the hosting website. Many of you (my cohorts) possess drafts that make me feel behind the power curve. (That’s my burden, not yours.) However, I am proud of my progress. I am sure others of you will have a variety of ideas to assist me.

I intend to include a text attachment of my voiceovers, for those students who are more visual learners and/or may have audio processing issues.
