  2. i enjoy the lesson plans you send very much. i’m turning them into a power point presentation, and some of them i even give as homework and check in class after wards (a kind of a flipped lesson). anyone who wants them – i’ll be happy to send them. i always give you the credit of course.

    1. Hi Henika,
      Thanks very much for commenting. I’m very happy you like the lessons. However, I’d prefer if you didn’t send PowerPoints of the lessons to other teachers as I obviously want teachers to come to the site to view the lessons.
      All the best,
      Kieran

    This lesson is saying a lot! The best part is that an individual opinion has been generated throughout.
