    I was asked to write a WEP for the first time this year, and I’m so glad I found this course. Very helpful, up-to-date information that I could use right away.

    Good course going over WEPs for students in Ohio

  3. Shanee – East Muskingum Local Schools (verified owner)

    This course is the third one that I have completed by this presenter. She is very specific and gives many examples of what should happen when writing a WEP. She challenges my thinking as a gen ed teacher dealing with the gifted population and makes me reflect on what I need to do better on my end.
