I really enjoyed the content of this StAIR.  However, I think there should be a little more directions on some of the slides.  Some slides had spots to click so the students would know where to go however there were some, like the answer pages that didn't have any arrows.  Students could get lost in the powerpoint if they are unsure of where to go next.

This is a great stand alone project for students who are on level in reading. Adding audio would also include the students who are below level. I believe students may get confused about what and where to click in the slide.  I was confused about where to click. I clicked on the red words and the slide chages. I went back to get back to the slide and started over.

Technical Remarks:

All links worked.
