Do you know how to write a manual? Do you know how to describe the functionality of a machine? Or how to chronologically list the tasks of some kind of an operation?
I found this video which teaches 2nd graders functional writing to be very interesting. It is not easy for teachers to make a hard subject both useful and entertaining at the same time. Don’t you wish all our children’s teachers are as intelligent, caring and funny as the one in this video. The teacher in the video has recently became a Google Certified Teacher and was also a member of the first inaugural YouTube Teacher Studio and became one of the very first “YouTube Star Teachers”. In 2011 she was named AAGT’s Gifted Teacher of the Year. I don’t know what any of these awards are but it seems she deserves such recognition.
