Student Testimonials:

The assignments are very practical (hence the name of the class lol) and applicable. I love that I can create resources here that are actually useful. I like the flexibility to create what I need and what works for my position as it is unique. This class met my goals and expectations and I highly recommend it to any teacher working online.

This class was everything I was hoping it would be. I intentionally took this class in the summer between switching grades, so I could improve upon my practices while creating work I will use next year. That is one of my favorite things about all of the TINT courses: I get to create work that is meaningful and purposeful to me as a professional for assignments. The text is something I will keep on hand and refer to as I move forward. I highlighted what I loved, but also took notes in the margin with my ideas and this final assignment helped me to put those ideas all in one easy to access place as a next step. With only a few more weeks of summer, this list is timely and will be useful when I begin more intense prep for students to start. Thank you for all of your support and feedback. I appreciate the opportunity to share my ideas and learn from others along the way.
