Ian and Emma, I wanted to send you my honest feedback of your introduction to this online course. I have four scholars ages 12, 13, 15, and 16 (the 15 year old is a girl) and they were all fairly negative. The main reason had to do with repetition - to the point of redundancy. I'm inclined to think that some of it was intentional ("scholar phase, scholar phase, scholar phase") however, much of it was simply ad nauseam repetition. "Again" repetition to the point of ad nauseam, in other words - too much repetition. "Totally cringy" was one son's assessment, and "are you kidding?!", "How long is this?", "Is it going to be the two of them sitting there the whole time?" etc. Now assuming the two of you have achieved scholar phase, I'm hoping you've acquired some of the 9 skills (particularly 7, 8, and 9) and can apply them here. Suggestions: Use a power point or some other means to change things up a bit visually; the same means may serve to keep you on track; cut the side banter and references to inside jokes and personal family occurrences that can't be quickly and succinctly referenced; Spend your OWN time, practicing your presentation so that we, the audience don't have to watch you trying to figure it out as you go. The picture of Emma standing with a microphone is the format we were expecting, when we got the living room scene the assumption became: "This is just the intro, it'll be short". Expectation leads to disappointment so that's on us, but in an effort to save future viewers of these events from feeling a little gypped, try not to emphasize repeatedly and emphatically how heroic they are - as though they're too dumb to get it or need incessant stroking. Try believing yourselves that they are and then picturing how you'd talk to a truly amazing super hero. Hopefully there'd be no fawning "you're so amazing!" Keep trying, you'll get there! :)
