Multiple Courses Certificates Experiences Impacts Experts One Affordable Price
This course has a good balance of learning activities--reading sections, engaging videos, and thoughtful discussion questions. I felt respected as a learner, given the way information was presented with a variety of perspectives, extensive research, and many resources provided. The discussion activities give learners a good opportunity to reflect on their professional experiences and to think critically while exploring their schools’ philosophy, values, and experiences.
I found this course to be very helpful and enlightening, and especially loved all the resources you made available!
This course is very important. I believe that every educator should be required to take a similar course to be inclusive and able to support all of their students.
