Questions & ANSWERS

I have never participated in an e-course before. Will I have to be on-line at a certain time or will there be flexibility?

This is such a great question.  The coolest thing about an e-course is the flexibility to take the course on your own time and pace.  You do not have to be online at a certain time.   While the modules will be posted by noon on their release dates – you can pop in and view them when it works for you.  AND you will have lifetime access to the course materials.

Will you give a certificate of completion when finished?

I have a simple certificate process.  I require that you post a response on each module.  I will give a 15-hour certificate for this course when you have met this simple requirement.

Rave Reviews. . .

"When you said you were going to, I don't remember exactly your words, analyze the story for curriculum, momentary disbelief flitted through my mine- Oh yeh right. Well, let's see how you did - numbers, measurement, opposites, phonological awareness, social studies, social -emotional- not bad! " ! AnneMarie

"I loved every minute of this, you gave me so many ideas! I feel my students school year will be so much richer and as you pointed out in this module since language skills (which is a high priority in my school)are acquired thru this process my students development will be enriched. Thank you and be blessed! " ~ Adriana

"I am so inspired I am playing with the idea of creating a proposal to take to our school board for expansion of the dramatic arts in our district!

Secondly, I have more than enough ideas and resources to carry me through years of teaching, and I couldn’t be more excited to make it a regular part of our schedule every week."  ~ Nina
