    This is my 16th year of teaching, and I wish I had had this module in year one! I have always used stations, but this helps me see how much more efficient my teaching can be using this model. Thank you!!

    This course is a good reminder of best practices.

  5. Mary – DEL VALLE ISD (verified owner)

    Great ideas on working in centers for our students and how to get more learning in less time to them. The reminder of attention span length was also good to get again, as I think we all forget, and expect more of our students.

    It gave me several ideas on setting up center. It also stresses to limit the time students work on the centers base on their age’
