Our Produce and Publish Writing lesson plan teaches students how to use various technological formats to produce and publish writing. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to practice their typing skills by typing specific sentences and seeing who can type them fastest and with the least number of errors. Students are also asked to determine whether someone would respond formally or informally to specific situations and determine what kind of technology they would use for their response.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to type one page of text by the end of the lesson within a certain time frame and with 80% accuracy, differentiate between the various technology formats (email, text, blogs, etc.) and will understand what type of language (formal, or informal) is appropriate to use in those formats, and know basic keyboarding skills.
