Nonfiction Text Structures

Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Andrew Murray (Student), Feb 26, 2013

This is a great resource!  The lessons taught are very valuable.  I like the graphics as well as the colors and fonts.  Students should connect easily to the presentation.  Lots of great examples and a step-by-step process is a big bonus to this project.  You outline what is going to be taught, teach it, and also tell students how it will connect to their academic lives in other realms.  Awesome!

When thinking about UDL, it might be interesting to consider how students might be able to visualize certain sentence structures (using video or graphics that underline or point out key words and phrases in the sample sentence).  Additionally, audio might be a great complement to this presentation.

One other note: it seems that the end of the presentation is geared for an instructor-led presentation (i.e. "look at the sentence on the board).  Students may be confused by this if they reviewed the presentation on their own.

Technical Remarks:

The links on slide 9 do not work.  I probably blame this on SlideShare, as it does not allow the navigation tools to work properly either (I've had the same problem).
