What a motivating class! This book affirmed many of my beliefs about teaching reading and energized me to try new ideas. I loved the format of the online course and the dialogue with colleagues.
Rebecca Walker
I loved this class. The assignments were directly tied to what would be useful in our classes and the discussions were really good. I like how that I can incorporate what I learned in my music classroom to a huge degree and have a plan already started to do so.
Judith Fodor
This class was wonderful. I am excited to use what I learned in this class this upcoming fall in all my classes. Everything presented in this class is attainable. Some great ideas that work. Those of you passionate about reading, and those that want to share that passion with your students, this is the class. I enjoyed the reading assignments and the instructor was great! Awesome class.
