EDUX 7050 Engaging With Literature: A Workshop for Teachers, Grades 3-5 As a teacher, our time is limited and I’ve been a part of courses where I’ve had to research and spend vast amounts of time on subjects that I knew weren’t pertinent to my classroom. With this course, I was given the freedom to spend time reading text and listening to podcasts that directly impact the need that my students have. And as an added bonus, I got to spend time researching on content that I’m passionate about.

EDUX 7828 Responsive Classroom for Music, Art, PE, and Other Special Areas I honestly started this course in hopes of using the credits to advance on our pay scale. I am leaving the course with new classroom management ideas, new daily routines and expectations to enforce and a better understanding on how to respond to misbehavior in my classroom. I am glad that this was not just a busy-work course and I have come out a much better teacher. I think this book is needed now more than ever. Students are vastly becoming so independent in their needs and one way of teaching does not “fit all”. The Responsive Classroom way of teaching really starts to bring individuals out in your classroom and not only celebrated differences but finds ways to reach all students.

EDUX 6280 Literacy Strategies: Special Needs Instead of getting strategies for helping my struggling readers, I gained strategies for my whole class. This ASCD course was about the importance of reading proficiency for a successful life and how to help students become proficient readers, even when faced with a reading disability. This course was very practical for the classroom teacher, as it had many strategies that could be learned to help all students.

EDUX 7670 HEALTH EDUCATION: MOTIVATING STUDENTS TO IMPROVE THEIR WELL-BEING This course was a breath of fresh air and allowed me to expand my professional development in a direction that's directly applicable to what I do as a school nurse.

EDUX 7841 Lost at School: Kids with Behavioral Challenges. This was probably one of the most, if not THE most, informational course I have taken since my undergraduate days. The detailed steps and obstacles you might face while working with challenging kids is fully covered by this author.

EDUX 7402 Healing ADD. I would recommend this course to others. It was a great way to be able to learn about ADD and also gave me the flexibility to be able to research aspects of the subject that I felt were pertinent to me and my career. The video series was intriguing and informative. I would recommend this course to other people due to the fact that I was able to work a personal development course around my busy schedule to work at my own pace. I think that flexibility that is built into the class of being able to go at your own pace and source your own information is very effective. I was able to source information that was relevant to me and focus my research on information that I felt I would directly implement into my classroom. I don’t believe that I have ever been in a personal development situation that has benefited me as much as this course has.

EDUX 7831: Healing Anxiety and Depression. I could relate to most things Dr. Amen was sharing and felt intrigued to learn more. Another great aspect of this course was that I was able to conduct my own research for the two articles. This feeling of choice made it much more enjoyable to take on a research based class. Finally, I liked that this class is self- paced. Because I have time on the weekends, I was able to take on this class and do the research and reading during that time. I felt more connected and determined to complete the class because of these aspects.

EDUX 7160 The Learning Classroom: Theory Into Practice. Overall, this was a fantastic course, and I have recommended it to my co-teacher. After sharing the information with her that I learned about culture, emotion and social context, she wants to explore the material independently. In her words she wants to take a course for license renewal that will “actually be beneficial” and this course certainly meets that criteria. I enjoyed the self-paced nature and the effective presentation of the material. I appreciated the purposeful assignments as well, which is another reason this course comes highly recommended for other educators. We appreciate the value of being a life-long learner, but also are very busy people with personal lives as well and do not have time or the desire to complete meaningless assignments. Every assignment, article and video for this course was purposeful and well-intended.

EDUX 7817H Number Talks: Whole Number Computation It’s been a long time since I’ve had impactful professional development in the area of mathematics. It opened my eyes to many different things I can incorporate in classroom to make it more fun and easier to manage. It enables students to think conceptually and with an open mind to come up with solutions to math problems in a non-procedural way.

EDUX7590: Educational Leadership. This course thankfully allows me to use my work to get graduate credit in a meaningful way without too much superfluous work and assignments. I searched for low cost graduate level credits and this came up in an internet search. After completing my first CCC course and finding it to be a pleasant experience, this is my 3rd course from CCC.
