What PD Participants are Saying about IVS
I can’t even begin to explain how useful this course was. When a school board member came in and saw my students building their designs, we were able to talk about 21st Century Skills, as well as individual, peer, and class assessments used in the project. He and the Principal thought the project was great. With this class, I was able to draw all of the pieces together. I had no idea it was going to be so useful and fun
I just completed my first online reading course through IVS and want to compliment the designers for creating such a meaningful and useful course. I have many years teaching experience and have completed 12 hours of reading instruction at the college level, and still found many new things to learn from this course. The collection of resources is outstanding as well as the links to the rich and useful websites to support classroom teachers. Today more than before, there is a greater need to make each instructional hour serve double duty as a social/emotional and content experience. Thank you and I look forward to my next course with IVS.
