    Very good unit question: What does it mean to be a good friend?

    I like the inquiry-based style of your PowerPoint.

    Good identification of Areas of Interaction. This needed to be more fully developed to be effective.

    The summary was properly brief. You explained the basic plot and conflict without giving away the ending of the story. Well-done!

    Explain in your characterization themes, such as "men vs. women." Your theme explanations were sometimes complicated and were not "themes" at all but "topics." There's a difference when examining literature.

    Good explanation of the movie trailer.

    Visual Comments
    Your PowerPoint had a good sense of visuals more than text.

    This helped to make visual associations with characters in your work.

    The movie trailer emphasized themes in titles, such as "hard work."

    Actions could have been played out better and more clearly.

    Play performance was a good idea to "act" out and dramatize the action in the novel.

    Too much reading; speaking was unclear; little emotion in voices or body language.

    Introduction to the play was needed. Why these scenes? What should the audience be doing or how could they interact with the performance more?

    Some good explanations provided about the novel.

    I really liked the idea of acting out a short discussion circle, but it seemed too rushed.

    Visual Comments
    During the performance, there was no real eye contact with the audience. There was also really no acting, just reading.
    What about costumes? setting? scenery? props? You need to incorporate visual elements into future performances.

    Gorgeous poster! You needed more discussion about the themes represented in the the poster, but a great job overall on the artistic aspect.

    No conclusion really to either presentation.

    I like the idea of your play. You learned your lines well. Not sure what Niclas and Vladimir were doing during the play.

    Good explanation by Tammo of the background of the scene afterwards.

    It would have been stronger if you wore costumes and acted out your characters more fully. You delivered your lines without feelings at times.

    The presentation needed to be more engaging. Make more eye contact with the audience and read less.

    It needed to be less summary of the book and more discussion of you examined at the end of the presentation: themes, connections to life, your unit question, area of interaction, etc. It also would have been good if you opened it up to discussion more to the class. Good conclusion to the presentation.

    Visual
    You learned your lines well.
    There could have been more of a set and acting would have been stronger with costumes and visual elements, such as props, etc.

    Your presentation could have been more interactive--perhaps pictures, a PowerPoint, other visual aids would have drawn students' attention more to your work. Challenge students to participate more with you.
