"I love this class. I want to thank you [for] presenting information at a level that made us experienced teachers feel the excitement that we had as new teachers."
" Something that I’m learning from this course is that 'less is more'! It is not easy to accomplish for me. I really benefit from examples. The videos you post are excellent and I appreciate them. They help me to understand the concepts."
"I always felt that I did a pretty good job including this within my classroom, but after taking this course I can now see so many more ways."
"I have to admit that each part of this workshop has put ideas into my head on a daily basis. I find myself reflecting on aspects of the readings, lecture, as well as discussion forum topics during daily activities in my classroom."
"It is mind-blowing how much more is possible that I never would have imagined had I not taken this course… It has truly been an eye-opening experience and I thank everyone for sharing their experiences and insights."
"I am very excited that I have so many more ideas of how to encourage more communicative exchanges and I am now looking toward incorporating more scripted exchanges during many activities. It has been great to read so many ideas from everyone that I am anxious to try in my class."
"Watching a lecture and its accompanying videos and being able to go right into my classroom and implement what I have seen and read has been invaluable to me as an educator."
"I have several students on my case load who are new to me this year. They are lower functioning than anyone I've worked with in the past. I was at a loss as to what to do with these students. I now feel I have some great ideas to try with them."
"I cannot even name how many ideas I got from reading others posts. I think that was my favorite part of the class. The discussion forums not only gave me some great new ideas but made me feel less crazy. I am glad to know other people struggle with similar issues or feel the same way about certain topics."
