    Nice goals. Overall they are very concrete and a good mix of content and skills goals.
    Question: How might goal 3 “use scientific and social theory to interpret data in context.” translate into an observable. I would guess that you want students to use the goals to make some sort of decision or evaluation. If so, that might be a great thing to ADD. Maybe goal 3b?
