Student Testimonials:

This class definitely met my expectations. I enjoyed the practicality of the text, Keep it Real with PBL. I felt it was a nice blend of workbook with some textbook information, examples and questions to consider. The questions you posed for reflection were pertinent and useful.

It has been a pleasure taking this class. In addition to long term changes and ways of thinking and teaching, I was hoping this class would provide tools or techniques I could implement immediately to become a more effective teacher. I feel this course met both expectations. Thank you!
