EDUX 7700 Promoting Self-Advocacy for Students with Special Needs This course is a must take for all educators across the country. We all have students with hidden disabilities in our classrooms. These students may be struggling and on the verge of giving up. As educators we need to be there for the students and build them up, empower them, and show them how to obtain the goals they have for their futures. I have already recommended this course to my PLC team at my school site and will continue to recommend it to my fellow educators and administrators.

EDUX 6670 Total Participation Techniques The best aspects of this course were that the techniques were directly applicable to my teaching, the videos modeled possible ways to use the techniques, and the amount of content was not so overwhelming that I couldn’t digest any of the information. This is also the first course that allowed me adequate time to do self-directed research and application tasks. Being able to apply what I learned to lessons, projects and slideshows that I can use with my students made the course the most useful and meaningful course I’ve taken to date.

EDUX 7075 Teaching Multicultural Literature: A Workshop for the Middle Grades My teaching skills have been enhanced from the video series. I was able to take diligent notes and prepare engaging lessons for my students. I learned more during this course than I learned when I obtained my Bachelor’s degree. I am more thoughtful and deliberate when planning my ELA lessons. This course motivated me to dive into my ELA curriculum and start collecting multicultural works to incorporate into those units.

EDUX 7792 Online Teaching Strategies for the Virtual Classroom The format of this course gave me a lot of flexibility to put in more hours during off work hours such as evenings and weekends. One of the best aspects of this course is that I was able to find articles that were of interest to me and my content area. This really helped me to personalize my experience in this course. The course was not only useful in providing effective strategies that could be adopted or adapted, but inspired me to make changes to my teaching practices to promote student engagement in virtual learning. I have taken a closer look at how present materials and make information accessible to my students. The content was relatable, engaging, and encouraged me to improve my use of tech tools in delivering instruction as well as assessment to benefit both myself and my students.

EDUX 7770 Teaching Students in High Poverty Communities This course is one of the most valuable courses that I have taken this year. As the Foster & Homeless counselor for a large school district, I have been given an opportunity to work with families and children who are facing unprecedented times. The vast majority of my clients live in poverty as many reside in shelters, are doubling up with family due to a hardship or are barely making ends meet on a monthly basis. I am grateful to have a better understanding of their struggles by taking this course and hope to be a better counselor to them with the help of this professional growth opportunity. I would highly recommend this opportunity to others, especially since the COVID-19 epidemic will undoubtedly increase the numbers of those living in poverty.

EDUX 7250 Private Universe Project in Science I learned so much from watching these videos. Though there is a lot of content to digest, all of the material was very interesting and definitely helped shape how I approach teaching and learning.

EDUX 7792 Online Teaching Strategies for the Virtual Classroom I loved that I could choose the scholarly articles and the book that would best fit my educational needs for my own classroom. I would definitely recommend this course to others. The versatility of the independent study and the timeliness of the material with the need for online learning fits perfectly with the educational environment we are in currently!

EDUX 7675 Technology in Education: Opportunities and Challenges I’m thankful there’s professional development courses which allow teachers to actually choose what they want to learn about, how to learn about it, and then pick their pace. Extremely useful thank you!

EDUX 7355 Reading & Writing in the Disciplines I was highly satisfied with this course. I felt that it was very convenient, clearly set up and also provided an opportunity to complete the work at one’s own pace. This format really helps with the level of stress that comes with working full time, having a life, as well as trying to further my education. This course in particular because it really helped me to realize that many of the strategies that are used in English can be modified and utilized during social studies and science instruction. Often I find that there is just not enough time in the day to fit in Science and Social Studies content, but if informational text from these two disciplines are used as a tool for English lessons, then learning happens on multiple levels. I very much appreciated the different examples from real life teachers. Even though this class was geared toward middle school, high school and college level (and me being an elementary school teacher) I was still able to gain lots of knowledge that will help me in my own classroom.

EDUX 7620 Teaching English Language Learners I am always looking for ways to extend my professional development and I really enjoy reading books regarding the teaching profession, especially when they come highly recommended. This course allowed me to look more deeply into the book and into topics around it. It also pushed me to prepare “ready to use” activities that I could do on-demand in my classroom. Even though I have taught for about 20 years, I feel like I learned a lot from this book. However, even more valuable, was this course’s encouragement to go beyond the book and prepare things that helped me to cement my understanding and have on hand for next year.
