7 Phenomena that are briefly described in the material still count as evidence for this criterion, as long as their link to the idea is made explicit. The second criterion under Category III, "Providing vivid experiences," examines whether the descriptions are sufficient to provide students with a vicarious sense of the phenomena. In addition, to respond to this criterion, reviewers do not consider how much time is allotted for the discussion of the phenomena-this is examined in Category V: Promoting Student Thinking about Phenomena, Experiences, and Knowledge.
