Photosynthesis StAIR

Logo for Photosynthesis StAIR
This is a stand alone presentation for students to summarize the overall process by which photosynthesis converts solar energy into chemical energy and interpret the chemical equation for the process, and explain why photosynthesis is necessary for all living organisms on Earth.  This could be used during the explanation of photosynthesis or it could be used as a review for students who struggled with the concepts.

Lovely presentation and exceptionally informative.  I see a great deal of UDL principles and feel this would reach and touch every student.  The fact that you offer review, if needed, is a great tool for students who did not catch all of the information the first time around.  My only suggestion would be that you incorporate some sound with your presentation, this often pulls students deeper into the subject matter if they struggle with ADHD or other forms of attention issues.

Technical Remarks:

I encountered no technical difficulties.

Very nice StAIR on photosynthesis.  I like how potentially unfamiliar terms are given further explanation.  Students are given immediate feedback for questions asked during the presentation.  Students who are struggling readers may need additional guidance as the presentation leans heavily on the ability to read and understand the concepts.

Overall a great presentation.

Technical Remarks:

A back button could be potentially useful.  I accidentally hit the forward button at one point and I had no way to go back to see what I had missed without returning to the beginning of the presentation and beginning again.
