Thanks so much for this class. Full of great stuff I can use right away. All of the assignments were useful in my day-to-day life as a teacher.
Jennifer Murrin-Loomis
This was a great class to gear up for the new year. It is very practical, and I am thrilled to try some new lessons I wrote during the class. These strategies are great for all students.
Diane McGrew
This class reminded me of all the great tools we have out there to work with our ELLs. This book is a great resource and should be kept at arms reach so you can pull it out and use it along with your regular curriculum. Kelli is easy to get ahold of and helps guide you in this class. I absolutely would take another class with her.
