Keep in mind that any key point thats not in the book itself may be lost if it is printed in anothermedium, or the coaches are ignored by readers. Conversely, sometimes the coach is saying exactly what isin the slide, but that is not necessary because there is the text-read function for the books content (thatcould be highlighted with the coaches introduction, e.g. pg 10). There are also a few grammatical errorsthat need to be edited (incorrect tense, subject/verb agreement and spelling, mostly), so do a good proofread.
A few I noticed that might help you narrow it down are: pg. 21 should read and be punctuated this way "Nomatter how well you learn, some things simply must be memorized.", "...memorizing, there are..." Pg20 -Semicolon instead of comma in bullet 2, and use lose not loose - "...them; most students LOSE theinformation quickly if THEY dont use it." Pg12 - keep verb consistency use "...or TALK while studying."In the coachs text develop is spelled incorrectly, and you "...develop good study habits" no a is neededbefore good. pg9 - Teri should use Lets not Lets, and a few commas are needed. pg2 - when introducingLeo, is his text intentionally incorrect or is he supposed to say, "Hello/Heyloo, Leo will demonstrate to youhow to be a good note taker."11/16/2011 7:40 PMI really like the idea of having an interactive BookBuilder. Good luck on the rest of your project.11/15/2011 6:03 PMSome of these questions were hard to qualify and it would have been helpful to have a feedback option forseveral of them. For example the coaches. Well you only used the coaches 5 times so I dont think theywere helpful as they needed to be used more. The pictures were good and the ones that referenced actualstrategies and forms were useful. Again rework the learning styles to possibly learning preferences relatedto particular tasks. So if the task is memorization then here are strategies to help you and you can decide onyour preference for studying. if the task is to apply what you know then straight memorization will not helpbut calls for a different kind of studying.11/15/2011 5:01 PMThis is a great topic. The writing did seem a little squished together on some pages. I think it may be easierto read if you skipped a few more lines (this was in the learning styles section). overall, i think it is greatand a great resource for the classroom!11/14/2011 6:38 PMI bet you are planning more graphics, but just in case it would be nice to have a graphic on the pageswithout one!11/13/2011 8:25 PMReplace types of learners with more info. on study skills. Middle school may be too young to explain typesto.11/13/2011 7:05 PMGeneral: I think you should change your title to include all middle school students. My eighth graders coulddefinitely benefit from this book!!! Page 2: You should make your Table of Contents title bigger and bold.Page 4: nothing listed in the bulleted list. Page 6: The graphic is a little confusing…the part that is mostconfusing is the arrow having to do with Decay. Page 9: How does the reader input on the calendar? Wheredoes the information come from besides the agent? Page 11: Took quiz!! I love it!!! Page 19: You maywant to re-write point 1. I got it after several readings but I think you need to do something withpunctuation. Page 22: Graphic with no text11/13/2011 3:24 PM
I thought the book was a little dry11/13/2011 2:05 PMI think that the graphics in the book could be more appealing to the viewer. Also, you should use thecoaches more and when you do, dont put so much information for the viewer to read. Im sure youprobably already know this, but some of the pages are missing a graphic and/or text. Other than thosesuggestions, great job on presenting content that students need to know!11/11/2011 11:35 PMGreat Job!!! I did see a few things, so dont think Im being critical, Im just a fresh pair of eyes. Therewerent sources annotated for the pictureson allot of the pages. Great use of external links on pages 11 & 23.Consider rewriting the 2nd bullet on page 18; instead of loose, use lose; and instead of "you dont use it",write "they dont use it". Page 19 had some grammatical and punctuation errors, consider rewriting. Greatjob on the book, I can tell you guys put allot of work into it. Again, please dont think Im being too picky,Im just a fresh pair of eyes.11/11/2011 2:34 PM
