It was hard to relate at first since I taught math and science and the material seems to focus more on teaching ELLs in and ELD class. It really forced me to think about how I teach and learn new strategies so I still appreciate the class.

The course text is great! A few of the links throughout the modules are expired or broken but I was able to google any articles I was unable to open.

As a veteran teacher, I found this course to be both helpful and practical. It would have been nice to find a course like this at the beginning of my teaching career though.

I enjoyed reading the text that paired with the course. It was easy to comprehend, current and practical for my teaching position. I also valued the instructor's timely and constructive feedback. It was my hope that I could learn things this summer to prepare and use with my English Language Learners during the school year so am happy to take away new strategies, perspectives, and understanding.

This course is very useful. It contains information which is pertinent to the classroom, is research-based and thoroughly documented. I found it to be very helpful in both my daily teaching activities and in my professional responsibilities as a department member who needs to produce researched based strategies for colleagues. I recommend it without reservation.
