Hi Tammy,

Nice beginning. I like your focus on CFT in history teaching. Personally, I find CFT very useful in a lot of contexts. Two brief comments: (a) Your introduction is a bit too content-heavy. I'd expect to read CFT in your unit one instead of in the introduction page. The intro page is supposed to interest the audience and set up a proper orientation. (b) Your description of CFT is still a bit too abstract. Try to think of more and better examples; background CFT (inflexibility/oversimplification of instruction, the problem of inert knowledge) so that the participants know why; and think about whether you want to list the two criteria/features of ill-structured domains defined by Spiro and colleagues: each case involves multiple concepts and perspectives; the same concept/knowledge will be adapted when it is applied in different contexts.
