Kelly Bandoch
This is a great class revolving around a worthy read. Working with this team of educators reignited some ideas and motivation to make positive changes in my classroom.
Leah Chamberlain
This was an engaging and thought-provoking class that has left me with so many ideas! As a school librarian, reading this book was incredibly valuable, but it wasn't until I took the class that I began to see all the ways I could implement the practices. The format of the class allowed for so much discussion which helped expand my thinking and built a great learning community. The work pace was well thought out and manageable, and I enjoyed every project and assignment. Feedback was timely, enthusiastic, and encouraging. I strongly recommend this class--it will change the way you think about reading!
Monica Peeler
This thought-provoking and valuable book study definitely lives up to the title, Game Changer. When you finish this study you will be invigorated and motivated to make necessary changes not only in your classroom but also in your building. Jeremiah is an excellent facilitator and makes the course and content meaningful and useful.
