17. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Maybe lessen the power points and have more class interactions and activities to do hands on.
For me, it went a little too fast. I would have liked it if there were more hands on activities. Discussions helped, but it also helps if you're doing something that related to the lessons we were learning. I can't remember things well, so I think that if there were more interesting ways that I could remember concepts/ideas better, it would be helpful. I'm a slow learner, so, I want to be engaged in what I'm learning at my own pace, but not necessarily slowing down the class with me.
I think she did a great job. Lots of lectures though and not always easy to keep up with her in taking notes. Some things were in resources and some were not. She is very knowledgeable and I really enjoyed the course.
She is very organized and prepared. I think this course is perfectly set up for anyone who wants to succeed. AWESOME example of what type educator I should be:)
There was a lot of work. It covered the same concepts sometimes (ex. writing papers and doing the final project and being quizzed on things--three different ways to retain the same information). Maybe things don't have to be overlapped so much. If we had less work, we would have more time to think deeply about the concepts and put our hearts into our assignments. This may make for better retention. Not so much overlapping of big assignments/testing for the same concepts. Also, more structured guidelines for the final project would be good.
This class is actually one of my favorite classes I'm taking this semester because how much I gained from the class and Bobbie-Jo lets us participate in group work and she is very knowledgeable in the course. She really gets into the class and lets us express what we think.
study guides for tests
I enjoyed the class. It was difficult to do a group project but only because of my own and group members schedules.
Some of the expectations for the final project were confusing. I like individual projects better because I work full time therefore making it hard to meet with group outside of class. Give more advance notice on when the quizes will be to have better time to study.
provide study giudes!
Bobbie's curriculum for this class clear full of information
Have a better in-class test review for all tests. Maybe through a game like jeopardy?
more hands on work and less slide shows
I think that some of the items that were in lecture but not in the material and we were tested on were difficult. If we were not made aware of the importance of certain things we may not have made note of them during lecture. What every person finds important may be different and if we are not made aware of the importance of certain things we may not make specific note of them and forget them by the time the exam comes along.
18. Reading assignments make students think.

20. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I like the videos that were being presented in this class. I also enjoy group discussions and having an active communication with my peers.
Class discussions were a good way to engage all of us in the class. It helped me understand concepts/ideas that were new to me. The whole SkyBridge is new to me, but I think it's a good way to communicate with others who are in different areas. You get to know other people's perspectives.
I liked the discussions and even if it was a lot of work i am enjoying doing the final project. We didn't do any preschool observations though only individuals.. preschoolers, toddlers or infants. I enjoy and get ideas by visiting other schools.
I like the observations portion of the class the best! :)
children with special needs
I liked a lot of the videos and activities we did in class. Many of them were personal so we could connect the information to ourselves. I thought that the quizzes were well written and fair.
I really enjoyed the preschooler course because it let me see how much more a preschooler can develop and how different they are from when they were toddlers.
I really liked watching video clips and hearing her own experiences and stories.
I enjoyed the individual development focuses. It helped with breaking down how each age group develops.
I enjoyed learning about the milestones of children.
I liked the when we learned about milestones
I liked everything but the tests. I felt I was never prepared enough for them.
laulima
I liked the reading and writing assignments. I learned a lot of things by doing them and having to think of things that were new to me allowed me to focus better in my reading and make sure that if there was a new idea for me that I understood it. Thinking of questions that I was left with allowed me to express what I may want to learn more about in further education.
21. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course had taught me more about child development and added experiences and learning to my knowledge about children.
Good. I learned new concepts/ideas that I've never heard of. It will help me with my ECE classes.
I think she did a great job and I'd give her an A... hopefully she'll give me one too! Ha!
that it was very useful and informational!
taking another course from this teacher again next semester
It was a worthwhile course.
I enjoyed this class a lot because I got the opportunity to observe children, I learned so much more about how children develop and why they develop that certain way, and I got to learn about how theories were brought up and how some were beyond crazy and how some I can agree with.
It was good.
I enjoyed this course and learned a lot. I would keep this course in the needed curriculum for future ECE students.
I enjoyed this class! I think I could have used a little more help with studying for the tests. But other than that I enjoy coming to this class.
I had a great time in this class. I learned alot and would recommend this class to all ECE wanna be's
Good I liked the teacher and the content.
good~!
I feel that the course is well organized and thought out. I think that some of the items that are not in the reading or material given, but are touched on in lecture need to be emphasized more. I missed some items on the test because it was something covered in lecture but I never made note of it in my own notes.
22. Other comments:
My overall experience from this class has been great.
I would of liked a handout on the theorists because I can't open the power points on my computer at home. Perhaps I should of said something, It was a great semester but I will be glad when we are done. She expects a lot and I think I gave a lot too.
She is a great teacher.
Bobbie-Jo was very understanding and helpful. She helped with as much as she possibly could.
This was a good course I learned a lot but it seemed rushed and squeezed into a short period of time.
gatta do what you gatta do!
