Introducing Extensive Reading StAIR

Rating: 3 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Lindsay Silver (Teacher (K-12)), Feb 25, 2013

Overall, I thought that your presenation was very informative and well put together.  I really liked the navigation tools at the bottom of your presenation.  I thought it made it easy for students to work at their own pace, spending time reading through the presenation.  I also like the role play activity towards that presentation.  I liked the feedback it gave and how the students had to put all their knowledge to answer the questions thoughtfully.


One thing that I thought you could improve upon are the animations that you had on the slides.  I liked that they grabbed the attention of the viewer on each slide but I found it a little distracting when I was reading the slide.  I had to re-read to make sure I got the information.  You might just want to put the sound with the first bullet point and not the rest.  I also found that the red writing was a little hard to read at times.  You may want to try a more dull shade of red.


I also had some technical difficulties; please see below.

Technical Remarks:

I was not able to view your video introduction about what Extensive Reading is.  I clicked on the video but nothing ever happened.  Because of this, I was a little confused at the beginning of the presenation.  I also found that sometimes that arrows on the pages were not working and it wouldn't let me move ahead or go back to the previous slide unless I started over at the beginning.  Lastly, I was not able to use the link to e-mail you at the end because my default mailer isn't set up.  You may want to add your e-mail address to the slide in case other people run into this problem as well.
