I loved the format of this STAIR! I personally think aesthetics are important (students sure notice when things look "boring"), and I liked how professional your presentation looked. I thought the quiz questions were personable and appropriately used affirmations to help students find the correct answer if they missed it the first time (i.e. smiley faces :) I liked that you also had an outside assignment that asked students to select one video from Jan Brett's website and comment on her writing style. As a HS teacher, I think it's important that students learn how to evaluate writing in hopes that it will also help them develop and refine theirs. Great job!

Technical Remarks:

Your STAIR opened as a pdf instead of a PP, so I was unable to completely "interact" with your presentation, but I did see how it would flow had it been uploaded as a PP. Also, your last slide says "pass up" instead of "pass out."

This presentation is well designed, informative and easy enough for elementary students to use. The layout is simple and information is broken down into chunks. Students should be able to navigate through this presentation independently. This document provides links to outside sources and allows student interaction through a series of multiple choice questions. The big photos and clean design make for an attractive presentation.

Technical Remarks:

The linked file opens as a .pdf not a powerpoint through the link on my computer
