I think you did an outstanding job on this STAIR.  I was a little confused my the title and but this just might be because this is a subject matter I am not familiar with. I thought the STAIR was very easy to use and students could navigate well.  The STAIR teaches many concepts of text including timelines, table of contents, glossary, index, captions, diagrams, maps and more. There is immediate formative feedback and students know right away if they are understanding.  There is a lot of reading and answering questions but it is not very interavtice.  Will there be a culminating activity when they are done to use this information? I really enjoyed the text feature of this STAIR.

Technical Remarks:

All the links and text worked well.

This a well put together STAIR that teaches students the basics of text features. The project teaches several concepts such as table of contents, glossary, and picture captions with relevant examples and immediate testing of knowledge. Instant feedback is provided on right and wrong answers. If it were available I think a video or interactive diagram would help keep students engaged.

Technical Remarks:

This project works in both PowerPoint and OpenOffice formats and the buttons are all in working order. If looks like there is supposed to be sound to the presentation, but I couldn't get it to work on either format.
