Reviews

Jessica Weckx
I liked how this course was pertinent and applicable to a majority of teachers regardless of grade/content. The strategies are simple enough to implement (I just need more time to thoughtfully develop/implement some of the strategies.) The instructor was also very clear with assignments, due dates/times and gave timely feedback. I would strongly recommend this class to any teacher looking for ways to help develop strong writers.
