Jessica,

Excellent presentation. Clear, concise and focused. I'm going to create another StAIR modeled on your format. I reviewed your presentation for approximately 30 minutes. It incorporates the UDL principles and is very user-friendly.

Jessica,

I was unable to view your StAIR - looked Greek?!  I'm using my MAC, however, I think Melissa uses a MAC and it looks like she was able to view the presentation. I'll try at work tomorrow when using a PC.

This lesson is a great way to help students learn how to summarize what they have read. The articles in the lesson are very age appropriate and would grab students' interest.

Technical Remarks:

There is a word missing on the forth slide. Also, it might be a good idea to have students answer the final set of questions on their own and make their own summary on the last article instead of showing them the answers. 

Time spent reviewing site: 20 min.
