The presentation was very informative.  The video example was helpful in illustrating the information so teachers can design a lesson plan.  It was easy to navigate through the information.   It was clearly presented and I understood the objective of the lesson.  It also connected to Common Core, which would be helpful to many educators.

It would have been helpful to see more UDL principles integrating with the materials.  There was a lot of reading.  It would have been useful to have some information presented in visuals.  Also, there could be a way to get back to the home screen on each of the slides.

Great presentation the layout of the slides was great.  The integration of the videos was very helpful with the description of literacy use in the Common Core.  The video of the 8th grade classroom I couldn't see the clip but I could hear the conversation.  However, just hearing the conversation was nice because it allowed me to focus on the literacy and not get distracted with what was being filmed.

Hi Melissa!  First of all, I like how you clearly explained much of the material on your StAIR presentation.  I did have trouble with the videos like our other group members are mentioning.  I think this is just a problem that many people have problems with when using PowerPoint because I had the same issue which caused me to switch to using a website instead.  The text of the first slide also seems to run off the screen a little bit too and I have a large monitor so I think it may be something to do with how it was created in PowerPoint.  Also, I like your presentation, but I was wondering if you could have made use of some other techniques like short quizzes or questions besides just the videos to help make it more engaging to students and to hold them more accountable to pay attention.

Time spent reviewing site: Went through the whole presentation.
