Talk:Adapting and Modifying a Classroom Environment for Children with Autism


Review of unit 1 -- Kathryn.Kleiner (talk) 19:17, 23 November 2014 (EST)

Hi Kacie,

The layout looks really good, all the information seems to be there, and your links are working. Overall I think your doing a really awesome job and commend you for being able to figure out how to do all of this. One thing you may want to look into is that when you go to your links it completely redirects you and then you can't get back to the lesson easily. I'm not sure if this is something that you can fix, but you might want to look into how to get it to open a separate tab. You may also want to consider finding a different video or just adding that information into the lesson yourself. If you like it, or there is nothing better out there keep it, I felt like there wasn't much substance to the video because it was so short. I look forward to seeing the rest of your lesson.

Thanks Kate!

I will look into another video I had in mind or I will just as you said include the information. As for the links of the site. Still an area I am struggling to figure out! Glad to know that it wasn't just me having a hard time to maneuver around! Thank you for your input!


instructor comment on your mini-course -- Jianwei Zhang (talk) 13:32, 1 December 2014 (EST)

This mini-course is well structured. The opening is very engaging, inviting, and helpful.

  • Objectives: The following objectives need to be rephrased: "cover" and "learn" need to be replaced with verbs showing what the learner will perform as the result the learners, such to provide definition, to describe, etc.
Learners will briefly cover the definition of Autism, and will then understand the support and needs of students with Autism.
Learners will learn how to identify and reduce risks in student and staff classroom.
  • Learning engagement/interaction: For each reading assignment in your unit, provide a guiding question and a highlight of the key message to better guide the learner.
