This is the second class I have taken with Jeremiah, and the second book study with author, Donalyn Miller. I love the useful strategies, links and resources, and classroom research the author shares. The instructor, Jeremiah is wonderful to work with, The information you walk away with as well as the valuable sharing with colleagues is extremely useful no matter what age level you teach. Excellent course.
