I truly thought the time used to show how the icons were used to reflect on the text was critical. Then the explanation as to how each group used multiple icons blended together to come up with their thinking points.

I am rating this course with 5 stars because it explained each icon in great depth making it easy to teach the icons in the classroom and not to be intimidated by the more complex ones such as trends, ethics, and across the disciplines.
