This is a great class! I walked away with many ideas to, not only from the course text, but also from the ideas discussed in the discussion board. Jeremiah was also very timely and positive in his feedback!
Ginger Park
I loved how the book is easy to read and provides clear examples that I can immediately use or adapt to my own classroom.
