    I teach ELA, and I find it hard to relate this information to my classroom. It seems that this would be easier to manage in a math, ss, or science classroom.

  2. Tim – GROVEPORT MADISON LOCAL (verified owner)

    It was the best.

  3. Bruce – MIAMI EAST LOCAL (verified owner)

    Learning contracts have a place in most classrooms, and this course has great information on the best way to implement them.

    The beginning of the course should explicitly state what a learning contract is, with a visual example.
