11. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really enjoyed all of the videos that were posted. Although this was an online course, I felt like I actually knew the professor, and I think that made the online experience more enjoyable!
I really took interest in early emergent reading.
The forums, I found lots of meaningful discussion and ideas were shared with my classmates and professor Martel.
Being able to tell how student learns and becomes literate and what we can do as teachers to help assess and reform their literacy
I believe everything in General was very valuable from the modules to the forums and so on.
I learned so much from Professor Martel's course I think Professor Martel is one of the best teachers at L.C.C. She always is there for her students and encourages her students while teaching them how to be the best teachers they can be. We need more teachers like Professor Martel.
I gained a new understanding of how important it is to be accepting to what my students have to offer
I feel that the organization of the course and the information presented were most valuable because each topic flowed into the next topic and the information I gained from this course will be very helpful when I have my own classroom.
12. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
The service learning aspect gave me great in classroom experience. I also learned so many great tools that can be used in the classroom throughout the course.
This class has opened my eyes to a new way of learning, how to discover different perspectives on learning. I also found from this class that time management is important in any professional career.
it would help benefit me to better asses the students
I feel that the modules will help me personally. And the case study on how we had to conduct running records.
Just to be the best I can be. I want to be as good of a educator as Professor Martel.
The open communication between mentor and student benefitted me personally because I will bring the "open door" policy into my classroom and be there as a mentor for my students.

18. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I don't think that anything needs to be improved. If anything maybe have a few more examples of the case study.
Aside from forums, provide students with clearer schedules of what is expected and when. Also provide a couple of resources for what needs to be researched for each module so students can get an idea of what they need to research for the case study.
I wish to have had her in person!!!!! Also to share with us how to find a child to do our Case Study project with, some type of contact where they are willing to have volunteers come into the classroom.
Online classes are hard for me. If this class wasn't online I think it would be much better
I would not change a thing!
I would have enjoyed taking this course face-to-face, but the organization and open communication of this course made online enjoyable as well :)
19. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She was a wonderful professor that provided great information and content that I will take for many years after this course, and made this online course fun and engaging.
Wonderful professor! I would take this class and any other class from her again, she is a huge motivator to students who want to pursue a career in teaching.
Very helpful and willing to give other options once one fails. She also replies right away once we email her.
I think Professor Martel is simply excellent!
Bobbie is a very fun and enthusiastic professor. I really enjoyed this online course; however, I regret that I didn't take this course in person because I feel the class would have been more interesting and informative. Although Ms. Martel presented the material in a very organized and descriptive way, I feel I would have gained more knowledge by taking the class in person. It was a personal mistake but I did gain a lot of new knowledge and new skills.
I would recommend Professor Martel to all AAT (and non-AAT) students because she is extremely helpful and an excellent mentor!
20. Other comments:
I found myself having fun and excited about doing the forums and assignments that went along with this course. I overall completely enjoyed this course and have learned so much.
She is an Excellent teacher. Also Very helpful and supportive, she insures that every student understands the assignment given.
Thank you Professor Martel for your help this semester! I enjoyed taking your class :)

17. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I think more interaction in discussions would help improve the course and create a stronger bond between the students in the class and further challenge the concepts being taught.
Have us meet (in person) at least twice within the semester.
More Videos...but I only say that because I'm an auditory learner
Perhaps if there were more interactive activities for us to do since this is an online course.
The last Service Learning assignment needs instructions similar to Judd's.

that she is a sweet lady with an amazingly positive way of approaching students which is certainly memorable and appreciated.
I enjoyed Bobbi's class.

N/A
I think the only thing I can think of is spend a little more time going over the final case study. She gave examples and a rubric but I'm the kind of person who needs a little more. I feel kind of unsure about the project.
Just keep students interested and maybe one or two meetings would give students a better feel for the content.

She responded timely when answering emails.
I feel Ms. Martel's enthusiasm for the student and wanting them to succeed is very valuable. Her positive attitude is contagious, I want to be a teacher that has that quality.

Legen... wait for it.. Dary.. LEGENDARY!

5. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
This course had helped me have a deeper view on how to teach students with literacy skills or help them with these skills. I know now how to try and keep my class active and learning in every area.
I loved how the course made the class feel like a family and was very helpful with getting our foot into the door of being a teacher!
I loved how interactive the class was.
What I found most helpful was the fact that we are required to go out into the teaching field and actually experience what it's like to be in a classroom. this will be very helpful in the future.
teacher was very motivational and brought the class content together very well. made it easier to understand. she has wonderful ideas that she constantly shares in class and that has allowed me to apply these methods/skills to my classroom.
Everything. All the practice on running records was really helpful for what I may encounter as a teacher.
The textbook in this course was of great value. The information tied in very well with the online lectures. The course provided information that is necessary for a degree in teaching. A lot of material that I learned about literacy in education is used in the work setting. So I found this course to very informative. I also found the videos of Ms.Martel to be very helpful. Even though this course was online she provided informative videos to explain the material and the case study.
I feel the weekly Forum questions were helpful. It helped me to comprehend the textbook readings. I also enjoyed reading the classes posts in the Forum, which helped me to see different perspectives.
i think bobbie modeled a great example of what an encouraging, understanding, and sympathetic teacher would be like. She seemed very loving and caring through the web and it encouraged me to do my best through out her course.
Professor Martel put together a well developed online course to engage students through dicussions, assignments, and videos. I really enjoyed this class and would recomend other AAT students to take this course.
I found the text book readings most helpful
Much of the reading material and discussion were easy to read and understand. Sharing our thoughts with other classmates I found to be extremely helpful. Videos are usually hard to follow and rather boring. Ms. Martel did very well to remain enthusiastic clear and fun.
The forum was so valuable, cause we are able to realize that we all have one purpose, and that is to be a great teacher someday.
The assignments were good a making you think in a real world situation.
the text and her online lectures were very informative and i learned a lot about developing literacy in our children

Roberta Martel is the "bestest" instructor EVER :) In everything, she is helpful.
I want to be an awesome, enthusiastic, friendly, caring, helpful teacher just like Mommy Martel some day, but those are etremely huge shoes to fill :/
She was really helpful and easy to get a hold of.
She is always there to answer your questions and is very caring towards students.
She is very kind! She never highlights the negative and always hits on the positive. She is an ispiring teacher that knows her stuff. She makes me excited to learn and I truly enjoyed her class.
she is very supportive and encouraging. She make me feel that I can make a difference in a child's life by not giving up on the educational environment and to believe that children can and will succeed regardless of their shortcomings.
Everything! She is so helpful and makes sure the class has a good understanding of the subject matter.
I really enjoyed how Ms.Martel provided feedback on our work. Even though it was an online course she provided daily updates about the course. She was very involved in the course and very encouraging with her up-building comments on our work.
She was very helpful and really cares about all her students.
Although my class was done entirely online, Roberta Martel was available for help. She was very helpful when I had questions about my work. She was friendly and sounded very excited to speak to me. Her telephone voice was very welcoming. I felt comfortable with this course.
She was very welcoming and was always willing to help when it was needed.
She made the requirements really clear and the expentations were clear too. I feel that the experience that Professor Martel brings to the table is priceless.
She is willing to help and always available on line or in her office.
Her responses were always full of positive things. She would continue to post opportunities for students and had well thought out questions for discussions.
She is very pleasing and very easy to undersatnd. She would always give us extra time, and ask if we need help, and she is always there to guide us. Thank You!
Everything was laid out very easily on the web page, making assignment much easier.
unfortunately, i did not feel that i got timely responses or feedback from professor martel. i emailed her on more than once some questions and her responses were rather delayed.

NOTHING!
None, great class!!!!
I wouldn't change a thing.
The main assignments in this course were discussion boards. The discussion boards was a great way to complete assignments and see how other students understood the material. It provided great communication among the students in the online course. I would have also liked some assignments other than the use of the discussion boards.

None, it was great already.
A face to face party! To see all our classmates!
Maybe, at the beginning of each on-line class we could all meet. I know it is an on-line class, I think it is easy for us to talk to people in the forum if we can place a face in the persons name. Just thinking!!!!

5. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
EVERYTHING. I learned so much about literacy at the elementary level. It made me realize the importance it has on the education of children.
use of running records and how to analyze the data
The textbook was okay, but manageable. What really made this course was Ms. Martel's use of extra materials, to include the youtube videos and extra information supplied.
The weekly assignments and being able to view other fellow students work and gain more knowledge about the topic that i wouldnt have thought of.
The teacher was always there if I needed help and her flexibility with assignments helped a lot.

18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Her enthusiasm. Bobbie is so passionate about what she teaches, you can tell she loves what she does. Bobbie also made her self available to the students to ask questions if they needed help with assignments or anything else.
her videos on YouTube
Her willingness to help, to include proofreading any papers prior to them being submitted. While I did not utilize this service, not everyone has someone outside of the classroom that can help them proofread. Not all teachers are willing to be this helpful
She is positive, encouraging, and willing to help
She was available for help and questions by phone or email, and responded very quickly. She was very helpful and encouraging.
She helped me alot trying to understand out final project but hoped there was a little more information. She always responded right away when we had questions. She commented on all my assignments very well and included my high points of writing and maybe somethings to include to better it that helped very much to let me know i was on the right track.
Always in a good mood and made me feel comfortable going to her for anything I needed.

I feel that because it was a online course due to my full time job the final case project that required us to do 10 hours in a school classroom was really hard and confusing for me because i work M-F from 7-430 and was very very hard to try and take off to attend a classroom to do a case study on a student. But she did make an acception to do a neighbors child which was helpful. But my suggestion would maybe change the final project a little bit with registered students having the mind that this is a online class and that they might be taking on line classes for a reason due to work or any other reason. This project and change for suggestion will be very helpful and less stressful for those who have full time jobs and cant attend classes every day.
Don't teach any online courses because her in person classes are way better.

Excellent course. You've really made a good impression on me, especially due to the fact that this is an online course. I've always felt your caring, positive, fun, & enthusiastic personality from the beginning. You've made this course an excellent experience!
the assignments were interesting and thought-provoking. sufficient time to complete the assignments was given.
the class was easy to follow. we did not have to go looking for assignments and the work needed to be completed for each unit. There is nothing worse than not being able to figure out exactly what we are expected to do in an online class.
greattt teacher!! thank you
I wish I had taken an in person class with her. I've heard so many great things and feel I missed out taking one of her online classes.
