This is a lesson plan I used with my students as we began our study of Oil in Southwest Asia. It includes some reading for the Geography Alive Textbook, a video found on Youtube, work on our classwebsite, and then student dialog using the class websites discussion board.
The lesson provided a good opportunity to connect learning with real world occurrences. It's instructional goals and objectives are clear and obtainable. The content of the lesson present an opportunity for all learners to successfully reach set goals. It present information in different modalities. Video, vocabulary and cooperative learning activities present opportunity for diverse learners to receive learner in a way they understand. The lesson incorporates use of the internet using wikis to enhance the collaborative aspect of the lesson.
The introduction to this lesson provided multiples uses of different technology. It is intended for upper middle school students and addresses skills and technology that are aligned with skills for that level.
There are no apparent technical flaws to provide remarks for.

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