  • Hi Terri... I just wanted to take the time to thank you for posting your module slides for Unit 1. Our department at Berner Middle School on Long Island was working together to prepare the lessons when I found your work. We have since adopted your slides for the unit and are now continuing to create slides for Unit 2 of the module using your template. You saved us valuable time...so again, thank you so much!
