Hi, Janet.
This is fantastic! I'd love to use it with my 5th graders next week. Is there any chance you might be willing to share your evaluation worksheet? I would be very appreciative.

I, too, love this activity. I've been using a similar one for years but am ready to change things up. Would you share your Evaluation Worksheet?
Thanks!

I am a new media specialist and am so excited my mentor told me about your blog. Would you be willing to share your evaluation worksheet or put it on teachers pay teachers to purchase?
Thank you!
