Want to initiate forward activity on subdocuments.
Walden's path -- incorporate subdocuments
Peter's experience with student authoring and reviewing
Frank -- Walden's paths with subdocuments makes sense. May be an easy merge.
Rick -- Some experience with students generating Walden's paths
--- templates prepared by teachers, filled in by students.
Frank -- Teachers find student projects of authoring a path much like a survey or term paper. Walden's paths can be an activity as well as a resource.
