This StAIR design is well thought-out and very manageable. The quality of content presents educationally significant concepts and skills in the discipline of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), and more than that, this resource has been clearly aligned with curriculum standards. It is very smartly divided into the three categories of vocabulary, spelling, and pronunciation; however, students “figuring out spelling rules on their own” can look very different and support different methods and pedagogy. Because this is a design plan and not an actual StAIR, to use this resource instructors may design very different-looking solutions to address representation, action and expression, and engagement (UDL). I suggest modifying the design plan for this StAIR to provide a little more guidance for instructors as they design this resource for their students. Having said that, this has the potential to be a very effective teaching tool, and this design plan it itself will lend itself to instructors as a useful resource. Because I am not an expert in TESOL I will not determine whether it is effective or not in the classroom; however, it is easy to follow along and understand the flow of this lesson, and coming from an instructor who is also a foreign language student, I think this design will be effective as a Stand-alone Instructional Resource.
This design plan is easy to use as a single document and all of the technical aspects of the document function correctly. No links are broken, and the formatting should be compatible with most browsers and operating systems. Well done.
