Claire you have made progress in defining your project. I have several questions and comments. 1. You do a nice job of clearly describing your intent (topic/intent) and the instructional problem (needs assessment). 2. Do you have an references that support your position in either of the above? 3. Everyone else is preparing a course for educators here on the wiki. When you and I first negotiated something different for you, you were going to begin to move your history 101 course online. You have changed directions. Please contact me with your plans for this new project. 4. In your needs assessment, I would like you to elaborate more about your learner. Remember the factors that Shambaugh and Larson and Lockee suggest are important to consider about your learners. 5. You have three sets of goal statements. I'm not sure how they relate to each other. They are all good but which ones are your really hoping to achieve. Please form your performance objectives in the ABCD format. Your objectives are fine for your own uses. They contain the A audience and clear B behavior. And I want you to practice getting more specific about the conditions and degree. Conditions might be whether the book review is the result of a book that was read and discussed in class, or a book of one's own choosing. Degree might refer to the components that would make the book review or document analysis of a satisfactory quality. 6. In Shambaugh's outline of a needs assessment "Learning Content" is actually "Learning Context."
ID is an iterative process - one that is continually improved. So going back and refining is exactly the right thing to do. Let me know if you need help. Jane

I really like how you have your lesson set up and you also seem very organized and know where you are going with your mini course. I also like how your tips included anything and everything the student should know in order to write successfully, and any questions are sure to be answered. Have you thought about including some form of media within your lesson? Either a corresponding picture or link to a video?

I rally like how much detail and information you had in this project. I can tell that you worked very hard and put a lot of effort into this. Next time, I think that I would like to see more images, making the pages more visually appealing and more fun to look at. I also think that there was a lot of information at a time, it may be easier to work through if it were in the form of a power point or prezi just to break it up. I think that the tasks you chose were well suited and well thought out. Nice Job!!!
