This could be a great resource for students. The ground work and goals of the lesson are excellent. The overall set up of the lesson is excellent as it asks students to recall information and uses a variety of activities to accomplish this. However, the lesson plan does not have the story that students are supposed to read or the clip students watch. I think that the variety of activities will help all students learn and find success in the lesson. The lesson is technology rich and could be very enjoyable for students.

Technical Remarks:

A wide variety of technology is used but not accessible to people reading the lesson..
