I am planning on adding this material to a packet of support materials which will be used by a small cohort of faculty as they develop collaborative learnng projects.  Will comment again after I get feedback from faculty.

After reviewing the content of the website, I employed this strategy within my
own college methods course. The students enjoyed the collaborative method,
indicating that it was a strategy to place in their "toolboxes." The website
provides specific information implementing the strategy in the classroom and
could be of value to any teacher-leader.

My students enjoyed this activity. It went extremely well, to the point where it
will be utilized again. The students wanted to repeat the activity the
following day, so we continued an extended lesson on Emily Dickinson because of
their enthusiasm.

Technical Remarks:

A straight forward, easy to navigate site.
