Ginny was awesome. She really took into consideration our needs as learners and she made the class interesting and clear. I learned new things from her about students with disabilities, which is not an easy thing to say when you’ve already been a special ed. teacher for 8 years.

I learned concrete ways to incorporate investigations and other learning activities and came away with a better understanding of how to create classroom culture that encourages sharing and knowledge building. I know have amazing resources for improving my teaching.

I learned how to view children’s books I knew well in a different way and how to write stories for children who don’t have stories written about their situation.

I really like how the instructor described the way he used his classroom job chart to create situations in which students negotiate and strategize. I will absolutely revise my job chart. I also would like to find ways to incorporate block building because of this course.
