Please write an overall reflection on how you would teach this lesson and this module in your class, and post your reflection here.  Also, please read comments by other MOOC participants in at least two of the previous Teaching Module 2 discussions, and add to the discussion with your own thoughts.

In responding to students with various needs, having graphic organizers available to help with expounding the students' ideas or help with developing their presentations is what is missing from the list. The other responses are appropriate and will be effective if implemented with proper supervision.

This lesson series is a great method of incorporating the relevance of computer modeling into the Human Impacts and Climate curriculum as outlined by the NGSS. I like how it naturally flows into the PE about monitoring and minimizing human impact because it provides an efficient method for my scholars to experiment with something that might be too expensive or take too much time to monitor otherwise. 

In reading kcwgtt's responses, I realize that there are many common thoughts on how to teach this curriculum. I certainly agree that graphic organizers are helpful in making the concepts easier to understand and follow. I will certainly include many to help my scholars follow along when creating their own models.
