I love all the multiple button options that you gave on the first slide.  Making your StAIR non-linear progression I think really adds an element to the interactive part of the StAIR.

Technical Remarks:

One thing I would suggest when doing the review activities, make something to show the student selected the wrong answer.  For example, a noise or a "x" crossing out the wrong answer.  This would avoid confusion over if they actually selected an answer or that something had malfunctioned.

Your presentation and content is pretty interesting. I liked that you provided different types of assessment, a quiz within the presentation and the other 2 special assignments. Even though students are supposed to have the Outline Format… we know our people! So, it was good to provide the link to it. I think you made a great job developing a project that integrates UDL Principles.

Technical Remarks:

I was not able to see the videos in your presentation.

About the Prohibition Quiz (True or False), I think it is not possible to copy and paste the questions if you don’t want them to work with the slides (editing mode). So, maybe it will be good if you have a link to a Word document for them to work there or maybe a Google Doc and they can invite you as collaborator.
