Learn how to plan, draft, edit Group work


and create. In small groups students each
work with a deck of story
Re-read and edit for meaning builder cards which add events

words or word groups to students build a story with the
improve content and the cards. This should give
structure (ACELY1695) students ideas of how to PLAN
a story.
Understand how texts vary in

depending on purpose and the we do a shared writing
intended audience experience building a class
(ACELA1490) story, without the cards. We go
around the room and students
come up with an addition to
the story.

I then model editing and


drafting for the first part of the
story, using think aloud to
show how I would edit the
story and use vocabulary to
enhance the story. I would
bring up on the screen lists of
vocabulary that students can
use to replace commonly used
words like said went and
descriptive words like very
happy/sad big/small Discuss
how these words create
interest and meaning to the
story.

As a gradual release method I


would allow students to help
me edit the rest of the story by
asking how we can use more
advanced vocabulary.

The students then use these


skills to edit the story they had
built in a group. This task will
be done individually.
Evidence of learning: Conclusion: Students re join
I will monitor and assess their small groups share the
students ability to contribute editing they individually did to
actively to group and class their version of the group story,
discussions. Assess their basic they compare and contrast it
understanding of the structure with the way other group
of a narrative and if they learnt members edited their story and
from the modeled editing and how the vocabulary they used
drafting and were able to apply changed the meaning, direction
it to their own work. Students or interest of the story.
show use of extended
vocabulary to add meaning to
their text.
