  • I have really enjoyed this class.  I hope that
    the State Department continues to offer
    opportunities like this. My lesson plan will
    actually be carried out this year, as much as
    possible. I want to do the full plan next year. I
    changed it a little due to some exciting
    developments. I actually found someone who is
    going to provide us with Luna Moth eggs. I'm not
    sure who is going to enjoy this more. Thanks to
    everyone for all of the great input. I know that
    what I have learned will have a great impact on
    how I instruct my future students. I hope that
    everyone's upcoming summer is very relaxing for
  • I really enjoyed this class. I learned a lot of
    new ideas on how to teach and assess different
    learning styles for students. I enjoyed all of
    the post and all of the responses. I especially
    want to thank Ms. Patterson and MDE for
    sponsoring this course. I hope we get the
    opportunity to continue these workshops.

  • I have really enjoyed this online class and the
    ideas and activities others have introduced. It
    has made me rethink many of the activities from
    the classroom and peaked my interest in finding
    new ways to help my special education students.
    Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the school year
    and your summer.
  • I have enjoyed this workshop/class.  It has
    refreshed my memory of learning styles.  I
    learned them while going through school, but that
    has been many years ago.  I had forgotten about
    some of them.  I plan to use them in my teaching
    now that I have been reminded of them.  My
    special needs students can not always learn by
    using the traditional ways of teaching.  I will
    be using many of the ideas I have learned in this
    class with my students.
