Other Issues and Comments:
The presentation of the content is well done by the original creators. Teachers should learn to give mini lectures with this kind of visual appeal. The only issue is that teachers may view these and think they must do everything being suggested. Teachers must take what they are comfortable using and incorporate the concepts within their lessons.
