Talk:Using Story Maps in Elementary Classrooms

-- Ryan Johnson (talk) 14:55, 5 December 2013 (EST)


    Your first unit looks amazing! It was so easy to follow, and was very well put together. Your objectives for the other two were clear, and overall I think it looks good. Obviously you need to finish them...but if they're anything like the first unit, I won't have any criticism! Let me know when they're finished and I will make sure to review them.

Thank you for your feedback! I just completed my units if you had time to take another look! I also commented on your project. My comment is under your discussion space on the Introduction page for your course.

Hi Mara,

You've done a nice job designing this mini-course.

To better guide the learner to this course, you may provide a brief definition of story map after "This mini-course will focus on story maps." Under "what will I learn", instead of listing the unit topics, you may list course-level ultimate objectives, which can be a list of some (or all??) of your unit-level objectives. I've added the unit topics to your unit list in the end of the front page.

Thank you! I've made the modifications that you suggested (the definition of story maps and a list of objectives on the intro page). Please let me know if there is anything else that you spot that needs fixing or clarifying!
