    It had really good activities to help support team work and creativity in the classwork. These activities not only give students a hands on learning experience that is creative, it also supports understanding and growth of students academically.

  10. Jen – CONROE ISD (verified owner)

    I like the ideas and information shared during this course. My only complaint is that we are not able to go back to the videos to rewatch if we are unsure of the answer to one of the questions. For example, in module 3 quiz, the matching of the five words and vocab, it would have been helpful to go back and reference the videos. Also, I would have liked an explanation for the questions I missed.

  11. Zoe – FRONTIER LOCAL (verified owner)

    Great course. I would highly recommend. The time was flying during this course, and it’s full of ideas to use in the classroom. The psychology components were helpful too. Perhaps a bit more connecting to standards/content would be helpful.
