As a high school science teacher, I love the idea of being able to have students "review" the grammar that is so lost today with the "text speak" the students use. The show was colorful, neat, and easy to follow what was being taught. All explanations were good. I only question if the "is" in some of the verb examples should also have been highlighted, as they are helping verbs. I know you address those later in the "relationships," (and again, I am science, not English), but I thought "biking" is not a verb, but "Is biking" would be a verb. Maybe this is something that can be cleared up with more explanation. I liked the different types of quizzes presented, some were to chose the word out of one sentence, some were to chose the correctly written sentence. It was a nice length and covered a lot of material in a short time, with great examples.

Great start!

Technical Remarks:

The show opened up as a PPT instead of a self running show, I don't know if that is how is was supposed to be. Once I started the show to go through the stAIR, I could not get it to work properly. If I clicked on the arrow to proceed to the next page, I would all of a sudden get the next slide, but it would be h alf "done" already. For example, when the slide comes on and i click to hear the words, I am told to click on the noun in the sentence and a box will appear around it. I was not able to click on the word, because by the time I read and clicked the word, the box had already been placed on the word. When I went in to turn the timer off, I then could not get the box to appear when I clicked on the word. Maybe having the sound start automatically when the slide opens will help the timing on that. If I just let the show run on its own, and forward to the next slide without clicking on anything, I would see each slide even the "Right" AND "Wrong" slide after each quiz question.

This design has many good points. I generalize as below:

1. UDL

   This lesson design uses many different multiple means of representation.

   a provide options for perceptio.

     I find alternatives for auditory information, which is to embed teacher's explanation inside.

   b. provide options for comprehension

     I find in this ppt th highlight of ciritcal features, big ideas and relationships.

2. Instructional Strategies

  I find Kristin uses at least 3 different strategies:

   a. explain: she explains the nouns or verbs in pictures, colors, sounds and sentences.

   b. contrast: she makes a clear contrast between nouns and verbs by using the same sentences.

   c. relate: she always relates the quiz  answer to the definition and explanation of verbs/ nouns.

3. Prodcut desgin

 Her design is neat and organized, with clear direction and there is no broken link in this ppt.

Technical Remarks:

Generally speaking, it is clear and easy to understand how to go to next slide. But sometimes in some places I feel that I don't know what I am going to in this ppt. Especially the "Home" page is not connected to the explanation pages of nouns/verbs clearly.
