22. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course. It really opened my eyes more about interacting with my students. Great examples were given throughout the semester.
I was lost with the many groups that were assigned for different subjects and different topics. Myself and others didn't have a clear understanding of due dates and project descriptions because there was so much going on. There was a lot of information, which makes sense (as its an introductory course) which was very insightful and I could really get a wide amount of insight and knowledge. I enjoyed the info.- I enjoyed the school final paper project the most because it lemme independent.
an excellent course but it doesn´t even touch on SLOs, which is the biggest thing for teachers to do in the public school system in Hawai'i as of this year.
This course was very useful and provided good challenges that made it possible for me to grow and succeed.
It was well put for just one day of class per week. It wasn't crammed nor it was a waste of anyone's time. I liked it
N/a
I think this course fulfills its description of providing a breadth of pedagogical issues and tools. It may be overwhelming at times, but I think it is only because the course is meant for all teachers, with no specific subject of interest. So it covers a great many things to apply for all subjects. I really like the instructor. Like I said above, she is very knowledgeable and carries a breadth of experience as a teacher and administrator. I feel like she would be a great boss, if I ever work with her because she is so easy-going and understanding. I appreciated this class, despite the fact that the reading and homework materials take half of my time. Overall, it's one of the best intro courses I've had.
This was a very good course. Even though it was a required course for many I think that Leslie made it into an interesting, challenging and thought provoking class.
There are a lot of things to cover on this introductory course, which I believe are very important as it's a fundamental course in the Education program. This course cover too many materials in one semester. Maybe course should be broken down into two courses.
It was fun. It kept having to remind myself that it was an intro course, because we did not go very deep into much.
23. Other comments:
The food is a great idea- thank you for the different classrooms exposure as well!
I enjoyed how even though Leslie Lopez is extremely knowledgable in her field, she still arranged for a mid-semester evaluation and urged us to fill out these evaluations. It really shows that she is a driven teacher committed to improvement, and gives an excellent example for other teachers, as well. She was also very approachable and relatable. I would have liked it, however, if there was even one opportunity for extra credit or resubmissions.
Just for suggestion, I feel like our lesson plan assignment could be moved earlier in the semester. One of the reasons why I feel overwhelmed is that I think the assignments are dumped on me all at once. I think if the due dates are more spaced out, people won't feel too overwhelmed with projects.
I feel that Leslie's credibility as a teacher was one of the most important aspects of the class. Many classes are taught by instructors that have never been in the K-12 system. Having Leslie, who taught at different grade levels was invaluable.
Overall, great professor and very easy to talk to. I did not like changing classrooms so many times.
Thank you so much for all the food!

The convenience of the course. I liked that I didnot have to commute.
I enjoyed the teachers ability to be available outside the classroom.
the opportunity to collaborate with my peers in discussion and presentation of the course material.
24. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a good first experience for an online course.
i enjoyed the class but because it was a summer course it was very difficult to retain all of the information. It is also a very intensive work load in a short amount of time. I would recommend this class during the regular school year.
it is valuable.
25. Other comments:
I would have to say after experience this online course I am more open to taking online courses in the future and learning more about how to conduct them myself. Overall was a good experience thanks to Leslie.
Before the mid-term evaluation, there was so much 'homework' for every class meeting, that the actual assignments lost meaning - it became more of a route process, with a focus of just finishing the work on time, rather than actually processing or internalizing the material. However, several students pointed this out to Professor Lopez, and she did adjust the amount of coursework for the final two weeks of classes. I thought that that was amazing of her, since she truly listened to what her students were asking for, and then adapted her lesson plans. She was an awesome teacher, and definitely made this a great class!

I liked it best when the course emphasized practical teaching methods. I really liked what I learned about graphic organizers and gradual release of responsibility. I also really appreciated how the instructor modeled the teaching methods we were learning about.
The resources Professor Lopez made available.
I liked the weekly class meeting very much. It allowed the students to discuss current teaching issues in a non-attribution/non-retribution environment.
Leslie did well in generating community between the classmates (for example, assigning us to meet with each other outside of class) - this is not easy for an online course. I also enjoyed the breadth of the material covered in the course. We covered some really interesting topics.
Online courses: The freedom to do your assignments at my own pace and at a time that is convenient for me This course in particular: Leslie was so involved and compassionate. She made us feel like this class was the only thing going on in her life (which all know is not true). It was amazing how she would read all the work we submitted, was always available to answer questions, and gave us timely feedback that aided in our understanding of the material.
I really enjoyed the class periods on Elluminate. Professor Lopez was very organized and presented relevant material that I see myself using in my future classroom. The one thing I learned the most from Dr Lopez is how to facilitate learning amongst students. The Graphic organizers and pictures were great!
The synchronous sessions, as well as the ability to schedule my own study time and work at my own pace. The ability to go back and easily review concepts via the internet.
I enjoyed meeting online with the entire class and having discussions over a variety of topics. Mrs. Lopez had great pacing and consistency with her lessons. I was skeptical about an online class, but if proved insightful and more collaborative than some traditional classroom settings. Well done and hope she teaches more of our online curriculum.
23. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a good course. Though the pacing and assignments were reasonable both in terms of amount and time given to complete them, I found myself scrambling, sometimes, to complete them on time (with mixed success) which is something that has never happened for me as a full-time, on-campus student. Thank you for offering the midterm evaluations and for taking those comments into consideration. Prof. Lopez is clearly a very conscientious and thorough instructor.
great intro to teaching course
It was very good. The instructor took risks and used a lot of innovative approaches. Not every experiment worked, but it was always interesting and it's better than sticking with the standard formula.
Excellent, Professor Lopez is such a wonderful teacher.
Outstanding! Highly recommended for teacher candidates.
Awesome! Leslie is a good model of the strong qualities of a teacher I hope to be growing in.
This course was very well organized and thought out. Teacher involvement was an all time high! I feel as if I have learned quite a bit, but I also feel as if I knew a lot of the material because I have been working in the education field for some time (some of it seemed quite self explanatory).
This course gets an A+ in my book! Very relevant material!
I really liked the course, but I had a hard time keeping up with the work. I felt like it was almost too much for me. The other thing I didn't like was having to come up with "teacher implications", especially on the final project. I feel like I needed to be informed more about what the implications should be, rather than come up with them myself. I have never been a teacher in a class setting, so I don't really know what can be implied or inferred in certain situations. Others in the class have worked at schools, so I felt like they had a better grasp on that part of it. Maybe in future classes I will look more to my co-horts for ideas instead of trying to come up with things on my own. I really did enjoy the work though, for the most part. It opened my eyes to how far education has progressed since I was in school, and I learned a lot and feel much more confident about my future as a teacher. I gained a lot of tools which I will be using. What I liked a lot too was Leslie's cheerful and direct teaching style, one I hope to emulate as a teacher in my own classroom.
24. Other comments:
like that there were office hours
The final paper project was very confusing, especially the graphic organizer. I asked questions, listened to others' questions, talked to other students to try putting our heads together and I still feel like I never really got it. In general I felt like I understood what was going on in the class and what was expected of me up until the final few weeks. Then it seemed to sort of break down.
The amount of homework sometimes seemed very excessive for a thorough review/work on the assignment.
I think it would help to spend a bit more time on practical points, like classroom management. Even an extra week on this could be helpful. Also, the final paper/project was a little confusing. If the specific expectations were spelled out more clearly like the other modules have been it would be helpful. Overall very impressed.
Thank you for all your hard work Lopez! I think the thing I learned the most from you is that students can really feel it when a teacher is prepared, knowledgeable, and engaged.
Thank you Professor Lopez for being a great teacher! I learned a lot from your course!
