  Class Reflections
Teachers respond to the JMU class.
 
         
    “Problem solving has always been one of those areas in the curriculum that we always sort of assume they are getting but never really knew how to teach. This class and the challenges that I have been presenting to the children have finally, after 12 years of teaching, given me a way to develop that skill in a fun, hands-on, concrete way.” 

1st Grade Teacher Chesterfield County, VA
Spring 2008

"Children's Engineering is the most useful class that I have taken since typing in high school.  It is something that I can use every day."

2nd Grade Teacher Chesterfield County, VA
'Spring 2008

"The class is influencing my teaching by giving me so much appreciation for the technology in our world. I want to pass that amazement on to my students, and also some of the background knowledge I obtained."

November 2008,  Chesterfield County, VA

  "I’m beginning to look ahead to different curriculum areas to see how I can incorporate technology into what I’ve done for these units in the past.   Writing the design briefs and giving them the criteria to be met is one of the best ways I’ve ever seen to really get a good assessment of their understanding.  It makes differentiating lessons possible without having to write different lessons for each level of students."
