I think you did a very nice job in creating and enhancing your lesson plan. This lesson is full of different types of instruction and different types of learning. You stated very clearly, which is helpful to a teacher wanting to use this material, that “All three types of instruction are included in the project: learner<>learner (they work together and learn from each other; learner<>expert (they learn from me and others online who know more than they do); and learner<>content (they have the book and information online to refer to in order to answer any of their questions.).”

Aside from these instructional strategies, I think you did a nice job applying the UDL principals. I notice you create MP3 files for your students who wish to hear lectures and that you would also provide translated work for ESL students. Do you find that a translation of information will help them accomplish your objectives? I ask because I wonder how a final assessment presentation would go.

The way you have designed this project around a real world scenario was very clever and, I think, also an exciting scenario for the students. Nothing like a good adventure challenge!

As for the technology used for this project, I think you highlight many areas where technology can be utilized. Allowing your students to chose their own presentation format will help them create something that caters to their own learning style. Your rubric links opened, and there were no glitches with this lesson plan.

Technical Remarks:

There were no technical problems found in this lesson plan.
