I enjoyed this class. The instructor was always available by e-mail and was very understanding when life got in the way. She was also very thoughtful on the questions that were asked throughout the book study. The timing of the projects was well laid out. I learned new information that I could apply directly to my students. It was also really great to get insight from other professionals in the state of CO that were taking the class.

The book, Classroom Instructional for English Language Learners, is a must have for all teachers. The course is great for teachers who need to brush up on ELL strategies or teachers just starting in the profession.
