"This course gave me so much to work with....the coursework wasn't busy work - I gleaned realistic, applicable methods and activities to engage my students that fit seamlessly with the curriculum my classes needed to cover.  The scope of the class went beyond single-subject content - it could be applied to a variety of student levels, grades and subjects.  Content comprehension taught me what I needed to know - and so much more!"
