An online writing lesson

An example of an online writing lesson.

As we’ve discussed, a student may write sentences or a short text in a writing lesson, or they might write a text for homework. In this step, you’re going to watch Ollie teach a writing lesson to Antonella where she examines a model text in the lesson and then writes her own text at home.


Watch the lesson and answer the questions.

  1. What do you think the objective of the lesson is? (i.e. what writing sub-skill is being taught?)

  2. What features of the platform do Ollie and Antonella use to help Antonella achieve the lesson objective? How do they use them?

Check your answers.
