Quality of Technological Interactivity: Superior (3)

Students were very engaged in this lesson because they enjoyed the subject matter, but also because there was a lot of opportunity for students to utilize technology (for their own needs or to follow teacher instruction).

The lesson could have used another activity.

Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Strong (2)

If I could teach this lesson again, I would include a video or paragraph that explained to students how Earth Day became a holiday and what Americans do on this day.

Quality of Assessments: Strong (2)

While reflecting on this lesson, I would probably make the writing assessment an individual activity (instead of a group one). This is because it would be easier to assess each individual student separately, instead of in a group where each student is contributing to one product.
