Planning for learning

- Circle game roll of wool is thrown around. Ss have to say things that are
associated with Microsoft Excel.
- Did you plan to give the objectives after the introduction to excel?
- Ss modelling to the class.
- Introduction to excel. Threw a soft toy around (I liked the way you went to the
back of the class as well). Ss had to try to answer the ?s related to the function
of the highlighted sections on the data show projection. 80% of the girls were
switched on.
- Instructions for activity were well explained. Ss were asked if they
understood.
- Good activity high level of motivation (getting to eat the M&Ms and there is
challenge as well (an extra challenge question is put in for those who like a
challenge). A special reward is offered to the person who solves the problem.
The activity is real and highly efficient and keeps Ss engaged.
