What I liked most about your Prezi was the way in which you guys chose to tackle the book by first introducing general questions about the financial crisis and then delving deeper into the authors' perspective of who is to blame for the mess as a whole. All of the questions led to an interesting Elluminate discussion with everyone chiming in with their two cents. The range and level of the questions asked was on par with our graduate program, which I think was the reason for our meaty conversation on Thursday morning. However, due to that fact this individual Prezi would not be appropriate for a secondary classroom because I think it would be too far over students' heads, even for seniors. I think Tully was also on to something when she said she would incorporate more graphics and videos to draw students in and keep them engaged. Other than those two things, I thoroughly enjoyed our class discussion and it's all thanks to your group's thought provoking Prezi! Great job guys!

I really like the questions and points of discussion your group included in this Prezi. They were very pertinent to the main themes of the book and did a good job of facilitating our discussion about these themes. I think for the purposes of our graduate class, it was entirely appropriate. However, if I was using this Prezi along with a discussion in a secondary classroom, I would probably make the prezi a little more entertaining to keep students' attention by using more graphics, maybe embedding videos or website links in the Prezi, that kind of thing. Again, excellent resource w/ great questions, just maybe could be made a little more fun for use with high school or middle school students.
