Behavior is Language | Augustana College | March, 2014
I feel this course was informative and made me think. I am using many phrases and interventions with students. I especially like the reflective piece of the written debrief. This helps the teachers and I understand where the child is coming from. This information has aided in altering approaches to how we engage and intervene with the students.

I will certainly take the next course in this series, the “how to” of DI. I am a novice teacher getting back into the game after several years of raising my children. This class has provided me with lots of inspiration as well as motivation to reflect on my own philosophy and assumptions about teaching and learning. Thanks for the stimulating course!
Understanding Aggression | ESD 101 | March, 2014
I was surprised by the thoroughness of this course. It covered every possible aspect of aggression I could think of and then some!
