***********Teacher Feedback******************

1. “Thank-you so much for this! What a great short unit for this last week before the break! I was looking for something a little different this week but still structured and relevant. This is perfect.”

2. “I used this the week before Christmas break. The students really enjoyed it. That Sainsbury ad - what a gem! Thanks for a very engaging week-long activity that kept my kids' attention during a crazy week! The assessments were very easy to mark after as well. I enjoyed reading my students' personal reflections about the various media types - they definitely gave the categories some honest comments!”

3. “Very clear and thorough set to give students some multimedia lessons! I like that it has multiple modes of learning (speaking, listening, reading, etc.) and that it would be easy for an ELA or Social Studies teacher to use (and assess).”
