Robert Barry (Student)
Was this lesson primarily for a middle school class or could it be used with an inclusion setting? What is the amount of time needed for this lesson, could it be done in conjuntion with lecture or is a whole class needed?
Were the students able to easily navigate this website or was alot of direction needed?
