I thoroughly enjoyed this class! The work was well organized and very manageable in the time frame. The discussion topics were thought-provoking, and the assignments all provided resources that can be used in the classroom right away. I loved reading the core text and learning about so many achievers I hadn't known about before--can't wait to share with students!
This was my first COpilot class. I enjoyed completing the assignments each week. I teach drama and still found the skills and assignments to be applicable. It was fun to learn about so many different history makers and I’m excited to share what I learned with my students.
This was one of the best courses I have taken on COpilot. All of the activities can be used in the classroom at all levels and are very engaging for students. It was so inspiring to learn about First Generation immigrants and their contributions to our country.
