I am really impressed with what you have put together thus far. I really like the different websites you introduced that allows worksheets to be printed or created. (And being a math teacher myself, I will be bookmarking these websites!). Have you considered using some type of formal assessment? I clicked the link for assessment and unless I missed something, it seems there is just the final project. Maybe you could include something that measures if the lesson's objectives were met. Overall great job and I look forward to the finished product!

What I like/What worked well:

* Intro: clear info about what to expect in course, nice picture, clear headings for each lesson, effective links. Clear objectives and excellent assessment info.

* Lesson 1: nice image, bold headings, information chunked, good resources, relevant meaningful activities,

What you might consider:

* Intro: adding your course title

* Lesson 1: provide links to each lesson on each lesson page so learners can move among the lessons and not always have to go back to intro. consider adding a why section to the top. You do a really good job with teaching how to but do not help them see why. (you mention this briefly in intro, but it would be good to reinforce - especially since people may have a bad attitude about "worksheets).

Mini Course review -- Lauren Steers (talk) 18:18, 1 May 2014 (EDT)

What I like/What worked well: -your titles and objectives are clear -you provide appropriate links on each page -I like how you used a consistent assessment throughout all of the lessons (discussion). The discussion questions you posed will allow learners to reflect on what knowledge they have gained and what their peers' think. -The links are very helpful and appropriate. -I especially liked the lesson on games! As a math teacher, I am always looking for fun games to review with to help students study; you provided some great resources to use in the classroom to help students study.

What you might consider: -Including visuals that are appropriate for the lesson. For example, you could include an image of an interactive game on the games lesson. -Include a section in each lesson about why worksheets or videos, or games are good resources to help students study. -It might be helpful to include another software that can be used to create videos. I recently discovered Camtasia, which is a screen casting software. This might be helpful to create a review video.

Kelli, I really enjoyed your course, and I can't wait to use some of the resources you provided. Great job!
