EDUX 7828 Responsive Classroom for Music, Art, PE, and Other Special Areas My motives for this course was to complete it to help with re-licensure. But, to be honest it pivoted to the Personalized Learning piece just a little into the textbook and working on coursework. I would say overall my motives or goals were much surpassed and expectations were blown out of the water with the knowledge and content covered in this course. The new motive for this course really was pushed by my new leadership role in my district with the Personalized Learning model being hashed out by the pilot team. I feel much more educated and aware of the task item I was assigned to complete over the summer. The amount of intense information regarding Personalized Learning has exceeded my expectations for enrolling in this course.

EDUX 7045 Developing Writers: A Workshop for High School Teachers With each video clip, I found myself writing down ideas to implement in the classroom. This is the type of professional growth that teachers are hungry for. Too often, we collaborate with only teachers on-site and are unable to expand our practices beyond a limited scope of the latest/greatest idea. Looking at teaching practices in other school districts will help to broaden the realm of possibilities for new and informed instruction in writing.

EDUX 7402 Healing ADD. The freedom of the Journal Log is amazing. I tried to diversify learnings to different modalities and perspectives, in hopes of finding more specific information as well as to broaden my understanding of ADD. Much of the information validated learnings from the “Healing ADD” video. I also really appreciate how open and collaborative the professor is for this course- quick to respond to inquiries or concerns, and extremely helpful.

7801 EDUX 7801: Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. I work with a teacher who took classes with Vanguard in the past and she raved at how affordable, informative, and structured your program was. I work full time and have 3 small children - this class was something that would work with my hectic schedule. I listened to the audiobook on my 1 hour drive back and forth to school everyday. With small children it would be difficult to sit down and read a book. I am highly satisfied with this course and am hoping to take several more over the course of this summer. Parts of this book were very applicable to my classroom and the other parts were applicable to my personal life.

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.
