  • You may want to highlight the words, re-writing, clarify and shorten and keeps. These seem like keys words in the definition.
  • Great graphic! Again, I would use highlights.
  • Check the comma and the capital S after it. IS that correct?
  • I like the noise that you added here for the paraphrased passage. Could you do that for the others?
  • I think that some commas are needed in the paragraph. The use of color for the best is an effective strategy. But the heading could read - the purple one is best. So the reader does not have to guess. Also in these two practice slides the sentences are quite long, I am wondering if shorter sentences would be helpful to the students. Also, when you create the lesson plans, I think it would be good if students had copies of the text so that they could practice the highlighting. We’ll do this on Tuesday when we return.
  • Fun.
