    Do you all think we should include SEL?
    Personally, I think no need, only if HOPE requires it. I would think that most people would be accessing this site for the music content and the SEL is just kind of a bonus. But if you want to be more thorough then I'm not opposed to it either.

    My feedback would be similar to Janice's. I like how the activities are grouped by topic, but it's also a little confusing because at first glance it seems like some steps are "missing," until you see them under a different category. So it might be helpful to have a list of the activities in order, if there's space for it somewhere.

    I like how we grouped the activities under their main objectives. Could we also somewhere have the activities listed in order?

    For the Activity #2 page, it doesn't appear that we cover 2/4 meter. Maybe take it out of the title/table of contents at the top of this page.

    I am going to take down a lot of the content of Punaewele after this - as you mentioned, we are not correctly under lock down. I will work on this later.

    The feedback that I have here is condensing - which we will do later?
    Since there is a lot of great information contained within all of the pages of the site, I think it would be best to consolidate when possible.

    For example:
    The first two sentences could be condensed - This is a unit for all middle/intermediate school students regardless of previous music experience (General Music in Elementary or New to Music at the Intermediate Level).

    The last two sentences of the first paragraph could be - Please feel free to supplement with activities appropriate to the level of your students as the four sections in this unit are NOT lesson plans.

    In "Our Motivation" section below, it says schools are closed, so you may want to update that.
