Easy to follow tutorials & information is meaningful and will be useful in any classroom (I teach HS self-contained). I will definitely take another course for my PD hours!

There was information in Katie Hou's presentations that was not covered in Trisha Fyfe's. I had to go back and look at Hou's prsentations to find the material I had not learned (Facets of Understanding in Understanding by Design). However, I much preferred Fyfe's prsentation style. I would also like to have seen more examples for the younger grades. While it was easy to connect what I was learning to how it would be implemented in intermediate and above grades, I was less able to apply it to my 2nd grade reading class.

It would be helpful to know what the different programs used are. I don't know what mashing really is or mind mapping, or the different ways or programs that were used to describe some lesson plans. I expected to learn some of these technological program as well as how and why to use them.

Some of the concepts across the various methodologies were so similar, it was hard to produce the correct answers. However, the information imparted by this course was very helpful and valuable.
