This powerpoint presentation was excellent! I found the lesson’s interactive style to be extremely engaging. Students were given so much control over what they were learning at each step, providing them a level of autonomy. While there was direct instruction it did not feel like a lecture style presentation. I also enjoyed all the visual representations, it made the presentation feel alive. My favorite part of this presentation was the manner in which the quizzes were presented. During the lesson students were given the opportunity to practice their knowledge before the final test at the end, giving extra opportunity to check their understanding. But the author also provided specific feedback for the student based upon their answers to these questions. When a student answers the question incorrectly they are given specific information reminding them of the lesson and why the answer is wrong. I feel that students can gain a lot from this lesson without much more teacher provided support, which gives students accountability for their learning in a way that blends guidance and independence beautifully.

I really enjoyed your Stair. You kept the content uncomplicated and to the point. Nice clean graphics with bright colors. I only have one question, and I'm not a health teacher so I may be off on this, but didn't the government redesign the food pyramid? It took me a little under 10 minutes to complete the powerpoint, without doing the meal design activities. You might consider placing links on the meal design pages to a template that stuents could work off of, and links back to each catagory of nutrient. Other than that really nice job.
