Your Children's Literature link does not take you back to the correct page.

Stef- I think you did a lot of great work here. All the links for the documents worked for me. The link back to the page needs to be put in on one of them. You have all of the Marzano steps. I am still a little confused by all the steps, but I think your activities line up with what I understand. The page is easy to use. I do not know, but I wonder if there is a way to have all of the documents listed on the side in case you did not want to click through them all? Just a thought, it does look great!
