    Curriculum & Instruction: Understanding by Design
    ”Hi, Dr. Schieffer! I just wanted to say thank you for a great class! I learned a lot in this class and feel very confident moving into a new school year. I ordered red, yellow, and green index cards for formative assessment and am very excited to continue looking at curriculum using backward design! I also wanted to tell you that I appreciated how involved you were in the class, from comments on our discussion posts to additional announcements throughout the course. I felt like you were really interested, and you had a strong presence in our virtual classroom. Thanks again for a great class!”

    A Focus on Standards Based Assessment- 3 Univerity Credits
    ”I am not going to lie. I was not excited to start this course...HOWEVER, once I got going I really enjoyed it! The reading was interesting but I liked the ability to choose what presentation method I might use to create my lesson assignments. I generally did the essay format but it was refreshing and a good reminder that we can accomplish the same outcome by giving our students options for input. Dr. Lori is very interactive in her online class and always available to give input or answer questions. I look forward to taking more classes on line from this site.”

    “I enjoyed attending your presentation about using Google. I left the session to explore the classroom component some more. Our PBIS is in re-establishing phase. Thank you for sharing some of your expectations (restroom, cafeteria, hallway, etc...) with me so I can share with the PBIS team. I greatly appreciated your time and your expertise. Thank you for the great examples of how to go paperless with Google!”

    EDCT 5612 - A Focus on Standards Based Assessment
    ”The course was filled with relevant and applicable material that I was able to implement the next day into my classroom. Many of the assignments made me reflect on my current teaching practices and make minor revisions to improve my classroom. Lori gave me prompt and detailed feedback and individualized the course when applicable. I would definitely take another class with Lori.”

    ”I have enjoyed this class very much. It has given me some great ideas about classroom management. I am excited to use some of the strategies that I have learned. It’s a great class for someone just starting out as a substitute teacher. I look forward to your new class Substitute Teaching 102. Thank you for all of your websites that I can use. Thanks again!”
