How do I navigate a STAR Legacy Module?
To begin, click on the Challenge at the top of the STAR Legacy cycle. Movement throughout the sections of the module can be managed by making use of the navigation bar at the right side of the page or by following the links at the top or bottom of each page. The IRIS Center recommends that visitors to the Web site work through the pages of each module in the order presented in the STAR Legacy cycle, starting with the Challenge and moving to Initial Thoughts, Perspectives and Resources, Assessment, and Wrap Up; the Center feels that visitors who skip one or more of these sections may not receive the full informational benefit of the cycle. Please note that many module sections contain multiple pages, hyperlinks, short movies, and sound files.
