Ease of use –

I think your lesson plan is well thought out and would be easy to implement.

A nice touch was your addition of the quiz bowl. I have done something similar for my job and I found it to be a good experience.


What you could add to make the resource more useful –

I think that the resource is good and could be used without any changes.

I think that this was technically well done.

Ease of use: I think your lesson plan would be easy enough for student and teacher to understand and carry out, while learning a great deal of information.

What you did well: I liked the quiz bowl part. I think students would have a good time with that, and the competition may be a good motivator for some students.

What you could add to make the resource more useful: I think this is really well rounded lesson, and I can't think of anything I would like to see added to it.

Your lesson plan was very easy to follow with clear objectives.  The material you are covering is so valuable and important for students to know to be better citizens.  I really like that the students have the choice of what presentation tool they use.  If I were to make one suggestion it would be to have some very specific guidelines for what the students are supposed to present on their assigned president.  Those guidelines will help the students target quality information during their research.  Also, providing them with an overview of the advantages of the various presentation tools would help them decide which one would work for them.  Perhaps having some sample presentations created in a variety of tools would hit both issues in one move.  Thanks for sharing your resource.
