Would love to use this - but needs a lot of info taught or extra resources for my students to be able to utilize properly. Our textbook is too minimal to provide adequate knowledge needed to make this activity worthwhile. Nothing wrong with the menu - it is my end that was not prepared. Can't wait to use it!
I was very disappointed to receive this one page, 6 character summary questions and 14 comprehension question test. It is not indicated at all how it is tied to the CCS. There is no scoring rubric or similar item. It is just plain simple...one that the students could have easily made up themselves after reading the book by just making questions from the intro, rising action and falling action. Sorry - not impressed.
I had found that with this particular project more weight (30% of the total grade) should be given to making sure that students have the required point total and more weight (20% of the total grade) should be given to making sure that students have the necessary content in their project. In other words, I didn't think that something like grammar errors should be given the same weight as required point total and content. I hope that this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Hi! I wanted to download the preview before I purchased, but my computer is not reading this file. Suggestions?
I tried downloading the file and was able to, so the only possible thing that I would think that it may be is a compatibility issue. This is a Microsoft XP file, so if you don't have Powerpoint XP, then you may have to save it as an earlier version (ex. Microsoft Powerpoint 2003). I will tell you that the preview is the same as what is on the right side of the webpage, so if you scroll over the pictures, you will see an enlarged version of the preview. Hope this helps!
