This is a great collection of a lot of essential information. I also would not give it to students but it's certainly helpful for a teacher.

Awesome!! This puts all the elements together nicely. I am using it as a teaching resources as my students would probably tune out. But fantastic to concrete my understanding and knowledge and formulate activities
