  8. Kristen – YOUNGSTOWN CITY SCHOOLS (verified owner)

    I think the course has a lot of quality information especially at an initial basis to differentiation.

  9. Michele – COLUMBUS CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT (verified owner)

    Very informative.

  10. Paula – Bexley City Schools (verified owner)

    I thought there was some very rich content in this course. However, the information was a little overwhelming for a single hour course. A lot to digest, that would take well beyond an hour to really embed and understand. I also found it difficult to relate to math, as the instructor even said that math is a different type of learning at times. I appreciate the effort, but still found it challenging to apply some of the concepts in thinking about my content.

  11. Lacey – ELYRIA CITY SCHOOLS (verified owner)

    The course had good ideas and suggestions. I will take away some valuable ideas about differentiation and developing essential questions.

  12. Amy – WESTERN BROWN LOCAL (verified owner)


  13. James – WESTERN BROWN LOCAL (verified owner)

    Content was good…
    Technical difficulties made it frustrating…
    I could not submit my first response and I could not view the second question…

  14. Kathryn – WESTERN BROWN LOCAL (verified owner)

    It had some good ideas about essential questions.

  15. Susan – Defiance City Schools (verified owner)
