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.
Everything. All the practice on running records was really helpful for what I may encounter as a teacher.
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.
I loved how interactive the class was.
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!
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.
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.
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 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.
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 assignments were good a making you think in a real world situation.
I found the text book readings most helpful
the text and her online lectures were very informative and i learned a lot about developing literacy in our children
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.
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.

18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Roberta Martel is the "bestest" instructor EVER :) In everything, she is helpful.
Everything! She is so helpful and makes sure the class has a good understanding of the subject matter.
She is always there to answer your questions and is very caring towards students.
She was really helpful and easy to get a hold of.
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 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.
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.
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 welcoming and was always willing to help when it was needed.
Her responses were always full of positive things. She would continue to post opportunities for students and had well thought out questions for discussions.
Everything was laid out very easily on the web page, making assignment much easier.
She is willing to help and always available on line or in her office.
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.
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 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!
19. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I wouldn't change a thing.
None, great class!!!!
NOTHING!
None
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.
A face to face party! To see all our classmates!
None, it was great already.
none
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.
The teacher was always there if I needed help and her flexibility with assignments helped a lot.
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.
use of running records and how to analyze the data
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.

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.
Always in a good mood and made me feel comfortable going to her for anything I needed.
She was available for help and questions by phone or email, and responded very quickly. She was very helpful and encouraging.
She is positive, encouraging, and willing to help
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
her videos on YouTube
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.
19. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
None. Just keep doing what you're doing Bobbie! =)
Don't teach any online courses because her in person classes are way better.
none
none
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.

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!
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.
greattt teacher!! thank you
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.
the assignments were interesting and thought-provoking. sufficient time to complete the assignments was given.
