This is a very interactive PowerPoint that allows students to visualize and become engaged in the activity to understand different types of pathways, but I was a little unsure in the beginning on the intent. It allows student of all ages and skill types to be involved and understand; it builds on fine motor skills and the basis movement required in different sports. One recommendation that I would make, would be to not make the slides advance when the mouse hovers over the answer to a question, make it a click of the mouse. I would accidently Passover an answer and not know what I did or how I got to a particular slide.

Hi Joe,

I enjoyed interacting with your StAIR. This would be a useful resource to students, and I think they would really enjoy using it. You provide students many different ways to connect with the content. For example, with realistic situations (like the defender in basketball, and the Xs moving on the football field), individual movement exercises, and the opportunity to reflect with a multiple choice question. To support learners of different levels, you provide the opportunity to go back for more practice or to move on with a more challenging question.

Have you considered adding more color and/or kid-friendly graphics to the StAIR? That might help engage students who tend to be drawn in by visual stimuli.
