As a passionate reader this would be a really fun lesson to teach. I feel that the students would definitely get into it as since they like anything that challenges the system. I love the format of the lesson because it gives a lot of opportunity for changes if they ever need to be made for any reason.

I just have to say that I love this idea. I haven't had a chance to teach it myself, but it is going into my "must-teach" lesson's folder. I love this idea and the content!

The lesson plan was very detailed and comprehensive. I've never covered this content before, however I would, if not all of it then large portions of it, in the future.

It was interesting to learn about T charts and formulating pros and cons. The content being spread out seems confusing.
