17. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The classroom management skills I learned that I'm sure I'll still be using.
the fact that I will still be teaching happily.
I'll remember this by being my first introduction course to my career. 10 years from now my career bath might change, but ill remember the interesting tactics used to teach and impactful quotes used to motivate all students, even via the internet.
Organization, preparation, and effective communication.
The educators who made it possible for me to be where i'm at!
The activities I had squire to complete my assignments.
Yes, theres a lot of aspects that I will carry with me to help in my career.
The emphasis on lesson plans and the forum discussions.
How Mr. Cawdery's online course was the best I have taken. He provided enough instruction for each module. You did not get the feeling that he phoned in the course. He put a lot of effort into this course. I did not have the feeling that I could have just gone online and go the same materials.
Learning about procedures and routines. Model, reinforce, reward .
18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I really liked the text book, The First Days of School.
I found validity in my own teaching habits.
I found most helpful was the allowance of late work. Other than that technicality i found the videos in relation to movies and other assignments most helpful and valuable.
Instructor Cawdery supplied many helpful videos and examples prior to the assignment. I have taken online courses before and his expectations, instructions and assignments were very thorough as if I were in a classroom setting.
Effective communication, respect, and team work.
Professor Cawdery instructions and lesson plans custom tailored for online education. I also found the forum boards to essential in my learning.
The resources and the assignments and forums where laid out
Learning about making lessons that can help visual, audio, and kenetic learners.
Learning about how important first impressions are.
The modules of information. The materials really added an extra value to the course.
I found this class very valuable especially learning about setting up a classroom along with clear and proper rules, discipline, routines, and procedures.
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
The long wait for assignments to be graded and returned.
Least helpful was that this whole course was online. I love that I was able to take it, though i wish I had attended the class. I feel online learning isnt as valuable as face to face interaction.
Mr.Wong's book was very helpful.
None. Everything was applicable and appropriate. They will be instrumental in life and the work field.
Nothing really, as for when i needed assistance Professor Cawdery responded quickly and addressed my needs.
Nothing
not much I simply enjoyed the course but wished I took it class form not online
Don't know/
The forums, I did not feel they added to my learning about the course. It almost felt like busy work.
Everything taught was useful and will helps when I get into the classroom to work.

22. Other comments:
I plan to take this class in the classroom environment later in my college career!!!!!!!!! (:
He is a very dynamic instructor. He uses various strategies (not one fits all) to help students learn. His open door policy is truly an open door policy. He is willing and ready to help and assist. He is an effective and inspiring teacher. I would recommend him and his class to any student that needs to take this or other classes he may teach.
I am grateful for being accepted into the AAT program and to have my first year instructor be a master of his craft. Professor Cawdery has made it possible for me to continue the path of education!
I learned a lot about teaching and I have been teaching for a while. I would totally recommend this course to anyone interested in becoming a teacher. The material he presents shows his knowledge of the profession and also his passion about the subject.
Mr. Cawdery took the time to make me feel like and individual and valued student.

17. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Our field volunteer experience.
The creative yet essential assignments we had to do and how they really do help with being in the classroom.
Not taking the textbook approach to learning. It is incredibly irritating to be offered only one way of learning (i.e. weekly chapter quizzes in 99% of the classes taken at LCC) and this class allowed me to have some flexibility to what and how I learn and to submit it in different mediums. I was able to process information in a meaningful way instead of memorizing things to fill in the blank or answer multiple choice questions only to be forgotten as soon as the exam is over.
How much I've struggled to complete assignments on time and how important it is for me know these concepts.
The assignments that allowed us to imagine how we would want our "ideal classroom" to be.
All the videos in the modules, catches your attention.
I will remember this course mostly because the content was realistic. I can/could apply the concepts to my classroom that I learned weekly. This class has helped me understand the importance of being a well-rounded teacher.
Professor Cawdery. He is living the example of what a real teacher should be.His goal is to make sure all his students are a success. He's available and works with you to look beyond the grade and focus on what you are learning. Whatever it takes to help you and understands that students all have things that stand in the way of learning, something called life, he cares that you are a success in his class and you walk away with pride in your goals.
the textbook and material we used. Overall, I felt the content and material were excellent and I learned a lot by reading the book.
intro into teaching, that says it all. I will even keep my book for this course for future reference.
The professors creativity, dedication and passion to teach.
The first online class I took.
The amount of work required. At times it felt like a writing intensive class, in positive way. It was very well informative, structured and organized. The information was very accommodating to all learning styles. The sharing of Mr. Cawdery's personal life journey to teaching, it is inspiring.
How helpful and kind Professor Cawdery was throughout the semester.
Having been able to put to use the suggestions and recommendations learned from Professor Cawdery and from other educators. Managing and establishing classroom rules and mapping out exactly how students will "toe the rope" gives them a feeling of security that the teacher actually does have the class under control and will produce great students.
18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Being able to watch students in a class room setting was very helpful.
The assignments that were due weekly. Although some may took longer then others, they were all very meaningful and definitely apply to all the things we would need to know and use in the classroom.
The modules were very helpful and had a lot of information to guide my learning.
I found this course valuable in gaining more experience toward time-management. Working my way up to being a teacher requires a lot of planning and careful thought, in which this course has showed me.
the content in the class was very educational
The assignments! They really allowed me to think as if I were a teacher and had my own classroom.
The quickness of the response I got when I came into a problem with the principle at the school I case studied at.
The organization was very helpful! I loved how every new lesson was tied into the one before it. This really helped with building a solid understanding of all the concepts.
All the information that was in all the modules. It sparked your curiosity to learn more and share things with other people. The textbook he chose for the course is a guide that can be used for your entire career as a teacher since it full or information and references. It also was very inexpensive, I really like that.
the text book was a wonderful informational source that I will utilize in the future.
different concepts that I have not thought about before.
Online videos.
When a question was asked through email it was answered either that same day or first thing the next morning.
The endless information. Very detailed in every area of classroom management. There are a lost of valuable and helpful things about this course here are a few of them the emphasis on procedure and routine,using strategies and developing realistic expectations. Setting the tone on the first day of class is very important and building teacher-student relationship.
I found the videos on different classrooms, American vs Asian, helpful and gave me a better insight at how different cultures teach their children.
Unfortunately, this semester was a very difficult one for me. With my father's passing 4 days before this semester began, I already had obstacles placed in my way, and trying to overcome them while attempting to complete this course has proved to be untenable. As I am still trying to complete this course, the disappointment in myself is great. The Professor had all the material available and I understood that this was such a great opportunity for advancement, my personal goals were unachieved. I was unable to maintain my GPA, turn in work on time, and did not present myself as a professional. I learned many different things about how to establish a classroom ready to guide and teach students, and how I present information will benefit my students. I especially liked establishing class rules, having the students be part of that and involving the parents as well.
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
Nothing.
Everything was pretty valuable and helpful. I wouldn't say I found anything invaluable.
Forums. Though I understand it is considered class participation, I think the assignments submitted should speak for itself.
N/a
alot of reading and videos
The readings were sometimes not very relevant to the course.
Emails concerning other classes.
I can't think of anything that I found invaluable.
I couldn't say there was anything in particular that didn't have a value in the class.
Nothing in particular. I felt the structure of the course was excellent.
this survey
Too much information could be somewhat confusing.
Every thing is this course was extremely valuable. There was nothing in this course that I found was least valuable.
I found everything valuable and helpful.
I believe everything in this course is very relevant and valuable. I cannot give one single example where any detraction of instruction is negative. This was a positive learning experience and I intend to repeat this course due to the wealth of information.

Overall I enjoyed this class and feel like I took a lot of new information away that will help me in my future of becoming a teacher.
The videos were helpful to me as an online student, but I would suggest to find other videos to replace the animated ones with the computer commentary (i.e. module 8). Thank You for an awesome semester!
i think this would be great when taken by itself as an education course but then again did not realize it was a writing intensive course
Cawdery's class was very well-run and straight forward! Great classroom management class!
This has been my most inspirational education course I've had so far. Thank you so much!
I'd like to take more classes from the Professor but I think he'd have to move up to a 4 year school and I know the students who are coming up won't let him get away. Leeward Community College and everyone there won't let him get away either. Thanks Professor for a great semester!!!!!!
None.
May have needed a little more time for the field study.
Great course, I cannot stress enough how well organized this course was. Great teacher makes great students.

17. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Why classroom management is so important! After the lesson was presented, I started service learning and realized the classroom I was volunteering in was AWFUL.
the amazing advice on how not only manage students, but also work to understand their culture, how they learn, and how to best serve each student as an educator.
I'll remember when Professor Cawdry would always show videos on the subject that the area we are going to teach.
Thinking what was my first ed course.
its openness to dialogue and differing opinions.
The people I did work with and the concepts we created to have a better understanding of the material provided to us.
he is a very down to earth teacher and we raise are hands when he does and """we make it rain!!!!!!!!!""""""
"Have a plan" Harry Wong "Make learning happen", "Engagement" Professor Cawdery
How he would always have fun activities to start the beginning of class & it would change it up each time we meet. He kept the atmosphere lively at all times.
the presentation of good and bad strategies of classroom management.
Making it rain! With learning in my classroom. Using all the different things that we went over throughout the semester. I will establish a good protocol for my students to follow and also discipline plan, while keeping my lessons diverse and do able.
This course will always be relevant because classroom management will be necessary on a day-to- day basis. I have learned skills that can even be effective even outside of the classroom. The thing I will remember most about this class is Mr. Cawdery's passion for education, which I hope to embody and carry with me throughout my career. I love the way he is able to level with us/his students, which made this class feel fun and the work seem less like "work".
All the fun actives we would do in order to learn the material
18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I appreciated the opportunity to develop my values, policies, procedures, and discipline plan in the class and have them evaluated by a professional.
I loved the in class time. It allowed me to see things that were posted online in a new perspective
I value most that i could give back to the students that im about to teach as my career job.
Mr.Cawdery because he's so knowledgeable and encouraging.
Taking the information that was provided in class and seeing it being used while fulfilling my service learning.
My general ideas of how to run a classroom and how to understand my students has bloomed into more specifics and jargon.
the out look on managing time was broick down in the most basic way posable and was clear in concise
Blooms taxonomy scaffolding
Everything that he taught. Each time we meet was a new lesson of how & what to do in a classroom or how to manage a classroom.
Personal experience and answering of any and all questions I had that dealt with teacher-student involvement.
How to set up your class for the year. Honestly for me the the thought of that before this class kinda made me uneasy. How would I start this or have them do this throughout the year. Taking this class really helped to clear everything out for me.
The field experience requirement was the most helpful for me.
Being able to learn more about the field and Mr. Cawdery's way of being the teacher model
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
Eh.....
N/A
N/A
Absolutely nothing.
So many forums. While I understand that seeing the thoughts of others can be helpful. But for me, if I don't know the person that is pointing out certain thoughts in a forum I can't trust what they are writing and that makes the information provided to be irrelevant.
There was less concrete work than I would've liked. Some of the things that we did were less of work and more of feel, which is something I feel is contradictory to a professional enviornment.
the no friday class lol although the time was used for class and other classes and homework
People talking too much
Nothing
There was nothing that I could find that didn't help me in any way. All the content I know will help me eventually. May it be in how I teach, plan, see things and in me my self.
I truly can't think of anything that wasn't valuable. Every class discussion was relevant to the weekly assignment, every video and activity was related to a concept we were learning. Every module was useful in order to access rubrics and assignment information as well as reflect on class discussions. Forums were important for reflection and reinforcement of concepts.
Nothing

17. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Micheal Cawdery and my book
Michael Cawdery, the professor. He was very engaging and made learning fun.
How I'm using what I learned to manage a classroom.
Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by the inspirational videos shown in the modules and in class, the magic trick activity that we did in class, the humor in class.
wong's opening day board
Creating a disciplinary chart
applying it into my future career.
The helpful activities that were easy to apply and contextualize concepts that would other wise be written off as complex.
Using Motivation rather then Disipline Being a leader by example Lead from the front Doing after telling then practice
It's most likely to be how fun it was to learn in this class.
Thinking that this is not what I want to do.
Being able to near instantly apply course material knowledge to my management and education jobs.
activities that were done in class that clearly demonstrate what was being taught
18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
learning how to organize a lesson plan.
Overall learning of managing a classroom
Professor was very encouraging and excelled at providing instruction.
What I found most valuable and helpful about the course is that it has helped me realize that teaching may not be the career that I want to get into to personally. I've been discerning about career pathways in either education or in psychology. I've decided that Psychology will be the route for me starting next semester. In a good way, this course helped shape my decision to switch majors.
neat ways of getting students to feel comfy in the classroom
Rules and procedures.
I thought the most valuable and helpful of the course that he explained everything that we needed to do for our assignments.
The most valuable parts of this course came from how he presented himself to us as students and taught us to do the same. He did an awesome job of teaching us how to create instructions that will help students efficient.
Getting thru it, if I ever do
The constant encouragement given by the class (classmates & instructor).
As an adult Sunday school teacher, it taught me how to be more prepared in my teaching and how to teach in a way that the students get the learning intended.
The advice given and the work load were a lot to take in, but I learned how to be an effective manager in and out of the classroom.
creating of lesson plans that was different from how I am used to. These seem to be more common and are easier for someone to read, although I don't like that they are less detailed.
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
Everything was helpful and valuable.
None
That all the assignments had to be sent through Laulima.
Having to get another computer then reset all my classroom stuff.
The sincerity and uniqueness of Michael Cawdery's personality.
There was nothing that I could see that was not valuable in the course, everything was appropriate to the the slo's.
Whereas the work load was full, it was overwhelming at some points.
felt everything was valuable because there is no useless knowledge. I like the lesson plan creating because I get more practice putting them together.

Mr.Cawdery is awesome! I'm sorry I was very very very unprofessional but, you did teach me a lot about what a student needs from their teacher. I always had support from you in the class and online. Thank you Mr.Cawdery.
Professor Cawdery is a great teacher and is very knowledgeable and passionate about his profession.
although I wasn't always able to attend class I did enjoy my time when I was. Wish I could have been there more, but classes for my major and research had to come first.

19. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
I felt that the instructor was very helpful and in putting forth upcoming assignments it helped to know exactly what needed to be done.
I learned lots of teaching technique that I was unaware of.
The materials that was given to us was very helpful. It gave me a better understanding of what a teacher has to go through.
There were a lot of examples before starting a new assignment. I think those are important because it is an online class and examples help a lot instead of just reading instructions and then doing them. It was nice to actually see what he meant and see what was expected in our work.
The break down of information and assignments help me understand the work better. I enjoyed the course but I feel I could have done better on my assignments.
Having to read about other values in the classroom from all over the world.
I loved this class and Professor Cawdery is awesome. He is always there when you need help. I really learned a lot in this class.
Professor Cawdery is very understanding and was great at responding to my questions in a timely manner. Although I do wish I had taken a bigger interest in this course and get all assignments turned in, I appreciate that he is still willing to let me turn in my late work.
The ability to create lesson plans and maintain classroom management is important in becoming a teaching and this class helped to educate me on how to do so. Great assignments and had lots of fun! This class gave lots of insight and ability in becoming a teacher and really gives you a little taste of the profession.
The final project, it helped me get an peak of a teachers job, lifestyle and the means to get there.
First of all, the most valuable component of this course for me is its structure. I really enjoyed the way it was laid out and consistent throughout the term. Next, I found the teacher's comments helpful because I need feedback to know how I am doing in a course and he did a great job. He also provided great samples for a visual aid for assignments. Then, the consistency of the course was as stated in the beginning. The videos were very enlightening and also inspiring. Lastly, being able to see scores or grade for previous assignments has been both helpful and valuable. It is so that I can better gauge myself in this course.
Most everything. If I had to choose it would be the required classroom hours and teacher interview.
Mr. Cawdery has created a beyond exceptional course. The need for Classroom management is high and he has laid out his curriculum to help students become successful professionals in all aspects of preparatory work. I didn't fully understand the major impact this course would have on my line of study, but after completing Mr. Cawdery's class I feel I am much better prepared for my future. His lessons are well organized and include numerous learning opportunities. He applies a level of creativity in each module which then in turn sparked me into striving to achieve my highest potential. I highly recommend this course to all new ED students. They will be better prepared for their professional futures because of it.
Lesson planning. This is something i thought that would be really easy but honestly there is alot of criteria that needs to be considered to make sure that you are providing everything that meets the standards
20. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
every bit of knowledge that I can learn is useful to me.
It just took so long to get my work graded and returned to me. Other than that, that's it.
For me I'm not a computer person so everything took me longer to do, but I learned a lot.
It was kind of difficult for me to understand why we needed to learn about certain things.
Nothing. This course was amazing.
Not sure!
Some of the assignments had lots of components and required lots of time.
I honestly cannot think of a lesson, forum or module that wasn't helpful. Mr. Cawdery was always quick to respond to all my queries and concerns. He lead us with a friendly professionalism - and gave superb feedback on all assignments.
I did not find anything not valuable

Taking this course was well worth it.
He is a very good teacher.
Enjoyed the class I already recommend this class to a few friends that's getting into education. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us students so we can someday be a teacher as knowledgeable as you. Aloha
Michael Cawdery is a great teacher and is very understanding.
Great course, it taught me a lot. The things that I learned in this course will help me in the future as a teacher. There were many things that I have learned that I can implement and incorporate into the classroom and with students. I really enjoyed this course
Professor Cawdery taught this class with perfection. He was very organized in his class materials and assignments we clearly instructed. Everything was explained very thoroughly in his syllabus. Also, professor Cawdery was always willing to help and encouraged his students to excel. His class taught me a lot about teaching and about my abilities as a student. I would like to take another course of his in the future and would highly recommend his class to other students.
Great course and instructor!
Thank you Mr. Cawdery for an awesome first semster back! I learned so much from your class and I sincerely hope to take more courses from you in the future(!)
Mr. Cawdery is a great teacher and doing this class online was very organized and easy to follow. He always had great feedback to help me understand and better myself. I strongly recommend this class :)

18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Knowing the set-up of classroom management alone was valuable and helping because as I am watching over students and children for my volunteer I apply what I learn. And I know that what I learned in this course will help me greatly in achieving my future career.
What I found the most valuable and helpful about this course was when the professor would take time to help each and everyone of us individually.
All the new things I learned about managing a class (values, procedures, etc.)
The interactions and activities among the students and teacher.
All of the information I learned in this class is so helpful. I work with kids now and I can already use some of the skills taught in managing my class. I am really looking forward to implementing these skills in an actual classroom
The Wong book / guide, assignments on Laulima, and modules gone over in class
One of the things I really have taken away from this course is that we definately need better teachers. Not only through lessons learnt but through how the class was conducted.
This course really helped me to excel in lesson planning and classroom management. It helped me to be better at my job and I have a better understanding about how to treat students and how to address them.
What I find the most helpful in this course was when we have group work and presentation in our lesson plan.
It was extremely relevant to my career. And every assignment I did was helping me prepare to be a teacher. Things that I hadn't thought of, now I have. I feel way more prepared!!!
The course helped shape my values and knowledge about class management. After taking this class, I feel more confident and prepared to enter the classroom and engage with my students.
I valued having well defined SLOs, lesson objectives and goals, rubrics and examples of each assignment. These tools helped keep me engaged and validated that I was mastering course material. I also valued the multisensory teaching style which helped keep me engaged throughout the semester!
Every week all I had to remember to do was "One assignment, one forum" and it was due every sunday at the same time.
Mr. Cawdery always responded to emails pertaining to questions from students the day they were sent and commented on assignments which were allowed re-submissions on what we could do to get a better grade on said assignment.
It helped me better understand teaching. He helped me better understand what I plan to be doing for the rest of my life, and he helped me understand life in simple lessons that he was teaching us that will eventually turn into an everyday life type of situation.
How to make it learn!
I found that having to manage my time in everything I do helps me improve myself better without having to stress on any assignment and or class work. Having to be professional and being on time also having to be focused making learning fun will make me a great teacher.
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
To be honest there was nothing that I found least valuable or helpful. All lessons were very relatable as well as helpful.
-NONE
n/a
Can't say I have anything to say on this matter.
There was nothing in this class that I found needless in this class
Nothing - everything taught was relevant in life and in teaching
A lot of the content seems pointless. There is really good matter to be extracted from the class, but a lot of it is lost in waffle speeches.
I think the least valuable and helpful about the course is reading the stories.
The professor was extremely busy and a little un approachable. Not himself but his situation made me not want to bother him cuz I knew how busy he was. But he was always willing to answer questions despite his business or work load.
Nothing. No complaints, everything was highly valuable and helpful.
Nothing.
A handful of the comments he put on assignments which told me what to add into my work to get a better grade already had what he requested in said work.
I didn't care for the ones in my class at the time. I honestly felt alone in class and like an outcast.
Everything was valuable
I found that everything is valuable in this course and it was my favorite and fun class this semester

21. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Michael Cawdery is a great teacher who is very sincere and knowledgeable about his job. I believe he will be able to implement some knowledge that will be helpful to the teaching career. Mr. Cawdery is very flexible and is always there ready to help. He does not discourage but instead help you develop your thoughts.
that he is a great teacher and he inspires me to be a teacher like him because he cares for his students to learn and achieve their goals for their future.
That he is a great teacher who know how to keep his students engaged. He seems to very knowledgeable about the things he teaches. I would definitely recommend him to anyone else.
Awesome teach and very motivated. Loves new ideas and pushes you to explore them.
He's professional and helpful, and he made this class interesting and fun.
Great teacher, hilarious, and I recommend him to any student looking for a teacher who is super helpful, interesting, engaging , and the perfect example of a role model teacher.
He is passionate or rather charismatic. That only carries one so far however. When asked for clarification on certain areas he is unable to produce an answer and sometimes fabrication occurs.
Great teacher really understands the students and connects with the students.
My overall evaluation of Michael Cawdery is very helpful and respectful professor.
Effective Teacher...nuff said. He understands the content that he teaches really well. He teaches in a clear and concise manner. Keeps class lessons and assignments extremely relevant. High expectations and encouragement. Makes class fun and engaging! I have learned a lot in this class! I would retake it if I had the time. I just might in the future.
Professor Cawdery is a very productive and passionate man. He instills confidence and success within his students. He is consistent in his feedback and advice, and answers all questions with detail. As an ED major, I can wholeheartedly say Michael Cawdery is an excellent leader and role-model for students within the UH community. Throughout every single class meeting, my classmates and I are eager to learn and participate.
Michael Cawdery is very passionate about teaching and is available to assist his students almost 24 x7 as he has to have a life also. Ha ha! He is fair. He creates positive teacher-student relationships and worked with students who struggled in the course to ensure that they reached their full potential despite barriers (language, works, personal).
an excellent teacher who knows how to keep his students engaged and is always will to help. All he wants for each of his students is to be successful.
I really enjoyed him as both a professor and person, although I feel like he possibly skimmed over some student work which equaled out to a poor grade because, as said above, many of the things he said to add into my work was already there. However, I can understand that, he's a college professor which means he has a lot of students and can't manage to carefully read every single one, nonetheless my grade in that class can impact my future.
PERFECT TEACHER! He was so helpful, he helped me become a better teacher. He gave me knowledge to help me in everyday life, included me in ALL conversations, and helped me when I needed things just to be broken down for myself. He was an excellent teacher! :)
Awesome teacher, very knowledgeable on the subject. Very engaging
You make LEARNING FUN!

I enjoyed the class, and the teaching wasn't bad. ED 285 should be a class to teach ED 285 as a pre req to itself though. A lot of it is common sense and opinion. You do learn a lot of helpful information but you have to deal with the muck to get to it. Overall I give it a 3 out of 5.
Thanks for all the help professor! You are great! I learned so much!!! Keep doing what your doing!
Would most definitely recommend this professor to other students!
I used the Education Peer Counseling services for ED285 when writing a lesson plan and it was most helpful! My peer counselors was friendly, made me feel comfortable about expressing my concerns about writing a lesson plan and gave me great examples on how I could my lesson plan more efficient.
Professor Cawdery was engaging with humor, likable with kindness, and in general just a really neat guy who I'm glad taught us all he did.
Thank You for this wonderful semester, I hope to see you in other classes teaching and hope that as I grow making my self a better teacher , you are their to help with anything and are accessible to every student along the way. Have a wonderful Christmas!

All the modules were extremely helpful in getting me thinking about my future career.
I loved his instructions and willingness to help!
The textbook was excellent. I also appreciated being encouraged to use multiple modes/media for assignments.
How organized it was.
I loved that he had the modules laid out for his students very clearly.
I learned a lot about being a future teacher in this course. I found that to be very valuable. This course also gave me some insight about the responsibilities a teacher has to take. It made me think about my career in teaching a lot more.
The projects that we did were very helpful.
The modules had multiple ways of keeping subject area interesting, slide show, videos, written format, stories, etc I loved it.

I thought that this entire course was valuable and helpful for me in becoming a future teacher. I enjoyed doing all assignments and I plan to use the material I learned in the future.

All of the assignments done on classroom management were all helpful and beneficial. I took away a lot from each assignment done. It made me feel like I was really managing and preparing a classroom for myself.
The fact that the instructor was responsive was the most helpful part about this course.
20. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
The least valuable was probably some of the forum posts.
I found the modules difficult to follow, especially at first. Sometimes the assignment as listed in the module was slightly different than in the assignments tab.
It took some time for the work to be graded and released.
I didn't like having to do the case study.
Everything was actually pretty valuable about this course. It was definitely filled with a lot of information and experience.
Doing the forums every week wasn't helpful at all.

Michael Cawdery seems like a really good teacher. I never really asked for help in the class but he seems really helpful. He would send out a lot of reminders in emails. He also seems like he cares a lot about our education and how we do in his class.

Michael Cawdery is a great professor who knows his material that he teaches. He is very easy going and an easy person to have a conversation with about any material that you don't understand.
great teacher, i heard many great things about him and now experienced why
great teacher, his assignments were relevant and useful.
Awesome instructor. Highly recommended.
22. Other comments:
Some of the assignments were fairly intense, but they were good. My weekly time investment in this course was around 15-20 hours a week - I was never sure if it was because I was just moving slowly, or if I was being to exacting. However, I have done quite well so far and I have learned a lot, so I am satisfied.
The class definitely got me to experience the duties of being a teacher and how to go through the process of lesson planning. I liked that it gave me a real idea of what is expected.

I did not get to interact with any of the other students.

He has to be one of my favorite teachers so far. He started off the semester well-organized and his assignments were clear and concise from the beginning. He was quick to respond to email, quick at grading assignments, and when there were difficulties with my internet he understood completely. I also really liked that he would comment on all the assignments and forums with good advice and motivating comments. Receiving comments on each assignment helped me do better on the next assignment because i'd know how to improve myself. Having an organized, positive, and well- knowledged teacher was such a relief and i can tell he teaches because he's passionate about it, not for the paycheck.
great teacher with lots of feedback, always concern us and passionate about his teaching,
He is amazing! He returned the assignments much faster than I expected, he was always available, and I could tell he wanted me to succeed. He gave good feedback on my assignments that marked my strengths and weaknesses and he allowed me a chance to make those weaknesses strengths.
22. Other comments:
None.
I like how you always give lots of feedback on each assignments. It definitely helps me a lot.
I would very much recommend Michael Cawdery to any and every student.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did not do an online course.
I disliked the amount of time we had to do assignments.
I didn't like having to do the forum in class and having to still type in the work or lesson you have learned for the week. I would have prefer to just do the forum as a class. I think that would have help a lot and have given the class more time to do better on their assignments or projects. A student can try to follow the examples but each required a lot of time to do. Which in most cases, students have a lot of homework to juggle and instead of running out of time and just putting their half effort to it. A balance work load, especially for those who can't comprehend it right away will not like doing online homework/classes because they can't get the extra help they need. Giving in class time for the students to do their work will make sure they do their work and can have their answers right away or be helped by their peers or teacher. It seems like the work load online was way too fast.
Navigating through the modules, forums and assignments.
A lot to do on the assignments
It was hard to get into Laulima sometimes since it had a bit of minor problems, and sometimes it would freeze right when I'm trying to turn in an assignment. Also having a hard time trying to figure out what to do for the homework's.
I liked everything.
I wish there was more thorough instruction.
That Laulima would not work sometimes.
I felt like assignments weren't graded in a timely matter which made the end of the semester work load more than it should have been. Assignments should be graded within one week of submission.
Nothing. It was extra information that Mr.Cawdery already explained vividly in class. So it is like a guide or reminder in case you missed something in class.
The directions were not clear. Most of the directions consisted of many misspellings and grammar errors. Some of the questions for the assignments asked us to do a certain task but some did not match up to the rubrics.
N/A
Sometimes the links did not work so I had trouble completing a few assignments
Nothing, Michael Cawdery was able to provide clear instructions and examples for our weekly assignments
Nothing really because my class was in person, the online resources were very helpful.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
N/A
It was good.
I liked that the online modules, forums, and due dates were organized. I liked that each assignment was given at the end of the week and were able to resubmit it.
Communicating with other students through forums and examples of assignments.
The information was all there clear and consistent
I was able to turn it in by Sunday at ll:55pm on Laulima, but at the same time it gives me the opportunity to get help during the week so I could turn it in by Sunday.
I liked having to turn in assignments online instead of printing out assignments & having to turn them in during class.
This course was organized and structured in a thorough manner.
It made assignments easy to complete
Classmates all got along for the most part. Developed new friendships and learned a lot while in the process. I liked that we sat in a circle. I thought that was really effective. I liked that the calling of names was by random. I really enjoyed coming to class every day.
This is only the second or third time I had online experience and it actually better than the ones before. If I forgot something, it was a great reminder. I am free to expand and express on everything well because in class, there is only an hour and 15 minutes and I am not good at thinking on my feet, like in an instance. I like to relax and do my work on the computer.
The variety of resources that were available to us were very helpful.
I liked that this was an in class course, but the work was all completed online.

I enjoyed this class a lot.
I believe Mr. Cawdery is the right instructor to do the job for future teachers. The material or assignments given for this course is a lot of work but this is the kind of work that will actually make an aspiring teacher become qualified teachers. For someone who has a lot of time may be able to keep up with the work load, but I think this class just need a lot of more guidance, time, in-class group work to accomplish the assignments to fully understand the material.If a student want to challenge themselves this is the right class. Just have to make sure you don't take out the fun in learning or else those who can be great teachers may learn to hate teaching. Overall I would take this class again.
Michael is the right man for the job.
He is a really awesome teacher and being in his class made it fun to learn things everyday you walk in his class.
Really wish he could explain more in depth, or have other ways to explain the topics he has for each day. I think he did pretty good, but at the same time he sometimes scares me to even come to class, because I am usually picked on, but all I do is just try to understand him. Really take into consideration that some people don't really understand what you are trying to say since your either going to fast, jumps, or get off track sometimes by the things he has planned.
This was a fun & interesting course.
Michael Cawdery is an excellent instructor. I really enjoyed taking his class and really wish I could take more courses from him.
Mr. Cawdery is so fun, energetic, and such a genius. He has great engaging activities and is humorous which makes learning exciting and inviting. Thanks for an awesome semester
I enjoyed this course very much. It gave me new insight on the teaching field and has really prepared me for my future teaching in the classroom
Great class, I would totally take it again and share with my peers and friends how much I enjoyed and learned from this class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I liked the online assignments and forums.
I really prefer writing things by hand, so did not really like all the hw being online.
The thing that I liked least was that we had to submit everything through laulima instead of hard copy. It is easier for me to not do things virtually.
I disliked some of the work that was required during the first half of the semester. It seemed meaningful but didn't require much thinking.
I did get confused about the end assignments. They seemed similar, but I just did them to what I felt was needed and my best.
I thought that the links that were provided online, really allowed the me to breakdown the information that he had been giving us so that I could use digital media (videos) that he gave us so that I could understand what was going on instead of having to read through a bunch of materials.
Nothing really.
Amount of work that was required for the entire course was too much for me to handle on top of my other classes. I was not expecting this much work.
Nothing really.
I would say the forums were my least favorite part of this class. Although the forums were relevant, I did not learn a lot from the forums. I also do not like the requirement to respond to other classmate's forums. I feel that my responses are forced and not genuine, and I feel the same about each response I get from classmates.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Everything i think laulima is so convinient
That it was easy to access and tons of examples for the assignment, that was definitely very helpful.
The ability to interact with classmates on forums.
Mr. Cawdery is a really good teacher and classroom manager. I enjoyed designing my own lesson plan.
I love how much interaction he created between the many students he had. Some I have never seen, but I could talk to them like we were classmates in the classroom on a daily basis. Plus Professor Cawdery is beyond cool and makes learning feel fun. Sometimes I felt like we were all talking like we we're out having lunch as a class! super comfortable and super fun!
I liked the many examples of previous work that was done, so I had examples to refer back to so that I would be able to understand what was fully expected of us and how to get the best grade.
I got to interact with other people.
In-class time was very engaging and fun. The professor was easy going and I personally learned a whole lot just by sitting in his classes.
I like that it's consecutive. That it's timely and relevent.
I love the online submission of assignments; this is very convenient.

He is a really good teacher, you can tell he loves what he does and he really helps his students when they need it.
You were such a fun professor! I never felt bored in your classroom, and could tell you love your job which is inspiring, thank you for everything!
The class was very interesting. Some of the work was very simple and a little boring for the first half of the semester, but once we started creating our own lesson plans and thinking about our own morals/ethics, it became far more challenging and interesting. All in all, Mr. Cawdery is a great teacher and it was an enjoyable class.
Keep up the good work Professor Cawdery!!!
I found that Cawdery was an absolutely amazing teacher! He tried very hard to make sure that all of his students understood what was going on, and that we had a lot of fun learning the material. He also came to school excited and ready to teach. I think he is an excellent teacher that really gets the students excited about becoming a teacher and really breaks down the responsibilities that involve the students. If he taught any other classes I would really enjoy taking his class again!
I liked how Cawdery addressed the disruptive students effectively.
Mr. Cawdery, was an excellent professor. I learned a lot in his class and would highly recommend him to other students, if he teaches any other classes I will most likely take his classes.
Mike is very knowledgeable about this subject, classroom management.He understands the special dynamics of Hawaii's diverse student population and teachers. I appreciate his understanding in how important culture is in relationship to teaching. He could easily try to enforce and preach the "americanized"/ western way of teaching and have it dominate his curriculum but he doesn't. He looks and listens to his data and teaches methods he thinks is best. I would recommend him to others and take a different class of his if available. Mahalo
I like that he is prepared and enthusiastic about this course.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Some of the modules were labeled incorrectly or had not been updated after changes made. The lag in feedback/grading was a challenge as the projects spiraled. Some of the examples for the assignments were not up to par with how the actual grading was represented. Example in classroom design a simple floor plan illustration was provided as an example, but not really the standard he was looking.
As this was my first time taking an online course it was intimidating at first. I had to learn to navigate through the course to really understand the the necessary class work that needed to be done. It was at first frustrating as I tried to get ahead. If I had missed a part reading on the assignment it really threw me way off course. I had no way of knowing if I was doing the assignment correctly unless I pay attention to details. Overall going back and thinking about the process that went on I find that all necessary information were provided on the site. Again this was a learning experience for me.
Sometimes, I would think too hard about the instructions of an assignment. In an on campus class, it is nice to have a verbal explanation of the instructions for some assignments.
I would have like to see the grading come back sooner, but it was not a problem.
I did not like the glitches laulima had, I love the course and content.
I wish i was there in person. The class seems so informational and it would have been awesome to have been able to have taken it in person.
I didn't like the following. 1. The assignments were not returned promptly. 2. There was very little communication from the instructor to the students. 3. There was no mid-semester check in or mid-semester assessment from the instructor. For example, you are currently behind in class. I would suggest you try your best to catch up. Please contact me asap if you need help.
When asking for assistance the instructor provided the same information in the same exact format as provided online with the same wording as though he copied and pasted it in the email. I could read it. I wanted it more thoroughly explained. I felt the instructor was unwilling to be open to adjusting or modifying for my disability and it reflected in the grades I received and I didn't appreciate it. I tried really hard to get help when I needed to and he was stand-offish.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The videos and extra links were helpful, encouraging, and thought provoking. Mr Cawdery was quick with response to email questions and concerns regarding assignments.
To really understand my course of study I had to immerse myself with my study of the subject. The course also was at a steady phase and were clear on assignment due dates. It was enjoyable to be interacting online with my fellow students giving feedback and encouragement. I am looking forward to taking more online courses next semester.
It gave me the flexibility of when to view course material. Also, due to my hectic schedule, I could complete my assignments when it was most convenient for me.
I enjoyed the on-line experience 100% and found it very convenient to be able to take a college course and still work a full time job. I will sign up for more on-line courses. However, there was only one time I really missed the face-to-face advantage of discussing a particular topic with my fellow classmates. Otherwise, I did not miss the classroom at all. Everything I needed to do the work of this course was right here on line. This was a really good course and I learned a lot. thank you SO much!
The content of the course is easy to relate to.
The forums. So much fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed the forums as they bridged the distance, unmasked the fact that this was an online class. I had a lot of very spirited debates from my classmates about my responses to the forums. Yet, the forums were cut short. I highly recommend that the forums continue to the end of the course as they complimented the assignments.
learning about elementary education. service learning hours was a big plus. i learned about how the systems works.
The assistance from my Professor. He was awesome and guided me along with this course. He was very fair and understanding of the students progression. Professor is very aware of the students progress and expresses the will to help student with their problems.
Professor Cawdery was helpful and his assignments related to the lectures. Awesome teacher!
The instructor allowed multiple types of media for the assignment submissions. That was new to me. I've gone to college for over 20 years and have 3 degrees and never had a professor who allowed so many different opportunities for choice. That was cool. I'm not hip to it, but it was cool.

Although I have yet to meet Mr. Cawdery in person. I have a good sense that he cares about his students and is willing to help. I am looking forward to taking more classes from him. Thank you for making a difference!
I enjoyed watching the TED videos, especially the one about hackschooling. Homeschooling is dear to my heart and it was nice to listen to such an eloquent young person. I learned a lot about the classroom, lesson planning and all the hard work it takes in preparation for the school year.
Without much student/instructor interaction, as it was on line- everything I needed was right here on line, all the materials provided, (reading, videos etc) were fantastic. I would recommend this instructor to others and I would look for him again when signing up for future courses.
Laulima needs to fix these glitches that it has been having. Other than that the course is great and very informative.
The course work was adequate. But could be greatly improved. Like continuing the forums. Even assigning group between students. So that there is a face to face meeting as well as an opportunity for students to build a network of ideas and to forge new friendships. What some of us disliked was the tardiness in the returning of our assignments. In my opinion, the service learning hours should be arranged by the AAT team as it is arranged by UHM and UHWO teams for their student teachers. Enjoy your summer and mahalo for the experience.

Not having face to face contact or conversations with my classmates.
nothing
This was my first online course. Ever. I'm still surprised at how effective it is as a vehicle toward learning. Much of that had to do with Michael's ability to teach the curricula. I do however, wish there had been actual in classroom, face-to-face time for communicating, sharing and rebuttal.
Time
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The class was well organized and the modules were very interesting.
resources
I came into this course with many teachers as my customers. I wanted to utilize obtaining my CTE as getting my, "foot in the door." I had experience as an outsider and want to use that vantage point with what I've learned thus far. I get it now and this is my new lease. On my way to doing so, my hope is that I'll be able to invigorate all the people I come into contact with.
I like the 24/7 availability of the course. This instructor replies to emails promptly and encourages students to email if there are any concerns.

The lesson planning
Of course, the material presented in this class will become invaluable when it comes to dealing with different learning abilities and knowing the resources available to me. I'd always been the type of person to, "go it alone." Maybe years earlier, I would've been a much better worker, contributor and person had I learned what Michael taught in this class...

It surprises me how well Michael was able to utilize the course material and use it toward my own learning. Detailed lesson plans, accommodations, time management and resourcefulness are skills I'm taking from ED285 Intro to Classroom Management. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised. He has imparted valuable skills that I can use in relationships, people and not just in teaching. That's what a TEACHER is.
Great instructor, learned ALOT. Weekly Forums would have been more interactive if there was a bigger class enrollment. Thank you for putting up with all the questions!

17. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Pretty much everything. I honestly felt every assignment helped me get a better idea of what I need to do when I become a teacher.
The assignments. I actually felt like I was setting up for my first school year. That was exciting! The course set up was also easy to follow.
They Harry Wong videos, I'm an auditory/visual learner and I really got into those. The points he made and they way he did things, they resonated the most with me. More so than the reading. It was really amazing to hear his stories and struggles and know that someone out there can help you make a plan for success
Specifically the strategies of classroom management - procedures, classroom setup, dealing with the disruptive student.
To pinpoint one specific aspect would be too difficult since all the lessons were intertwined and all carried essential life lessons that are valuable not only in an educational career, but also in life in general.
The textbook and module info.
Case study
All of the material covered were valuable for the teaching profession.
I really love the sample you provide for each homework. Sometimes we dont really understand how to do a project or just to start it, but you always provide a student sample.
I loved that you could submit assignments on a variety of formats such as video, powerpoint, word doc.
The lesson planning phase and opening day portion of the class.
I believe some of the assignment help you realize some things we will need to do to prepare for opening a classroom and being effective
18. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
None
I didn't love some of the student samples that were used. Some were great, others were so so.
I didn't find anything less valuable than anything else. While I did have my favorite I can't say that anything was less valuable in the end.
Some of the video clips could be omitted to keep the modules more simplified.
Overall, there really wasn't any fluff that could be left out. Everything was valuable.
na
N/A (refer to answer above)
Overall, the class was great! I couldn't ask for anything more.
Everything was valuable. I believe this class needs part II to dive further into some of the content.
I believe most of the material were focused on elementary school levels and not much in regards to high school or a CTE setting.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
none
Go back through the modules and correct some of the spelling/grammatical errors. Also, replace some of the student samples with better quality samples, if available.
I think you shouldn't reinvent the wheel, leave the course as it is.
Giving students notice of when assignments will be graded and returned would be appreciated.
Clarify a few of the rubrics and maybe offer some examples for the E&A assignments to provide a better understanding of expectations.

He did a great job. Being that it is an online course, the instructions given in our weekly modules were clear and precise. Professor Cawdery presented our lessons well.
You should touch on the subject of Educational Reform more and create modules specific to that topic.
His teaching of this course was great. In addition, he also coordinated the Praxis workshop for us who needed the help.
Needs to not have so many tabs, websites, links etc for an assignment. he may be a tech wizard but many of us are not and you spend half you time trying to find the resources etc. also the assignment come in too many parts. read two articles for each article list three things ... for each of these three things define 2 things for these two things list 8 other things on tuesday if the wind is blowing out of the north lol.... you have to create an outline before you do some of the assignments.
22. Other comments:
Professor Cawdery is one of my favorite instructors. Online and in person, you can tell he is really dedicated to teaching and wanting to make the lessons interesting. He always tries to find ways to make sure that we understand the lessons. Also, he wants to know how we feel about the lessons and if the changes he has made are helping us! Thanks!
Great class it was my pleasure
I enjoyed this course. I did learn a lot. Although, it required lots of time and discipline to get through with some of the assignments.
LOVE THIS CLASS! Even those not looking into a career in education should take this for all the valuable life lessons.
I really like the video clips, they helped me a lot especially doing class online. Sometimes watching it is better than too much reading because we get a better understanding of what the teacher is trying to explain.
Awesome class!
Great outline for this class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Only being able to meet once a week with professor and peers for hands-on help.
I had difficulties posting things and accessing videos from several of my computers at home. It was frustrating but I think it was an isolated issue.
Nothing at all, only due to connection to the internet was the only lack of this online materials being available.
There was too much information in the modules. It was overwhelming, and somewhat difficult to navigate.
that is new for me, but that is convenient.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Mr. Cawdery's lessons in class really helped us complete our assignments at home. The material we learned throughout the semester was really helpful for aspiring teachers like us. His use of rubrics also helped us understand his expectations in class.
I liked that assignments were manageable, 2 per week.
It was thoroughly explained very well the activities that were all involved with the course. I loved the fact that the rubrics were all well explained and there for our guidance.
Everything was very well laid out. It was easy to see what was due and how to do the assignments. It was also easy to find the service learning forms as they could be found in multiple locations.
maybe save more time for study,learn more infromation with other students.

Provide more engaging activities in class, more hands on and interactive activities.
he can find out some new artical or vedio put in course.
22. Other comments:
Loved this class, very helpful and meaningful!
I wish he had taught this course at LCC in the evenings so I didn't have to drive to Waianae. Mr. Cawdery was very approachable, caring, flexible, understanding, clear about his expectations, encouraging, funny. Overall, he was awesome! I enjoyed the class very much. I would highly recommend him.
I am grateful for taking such a course because it was very informative and I am definitely taking the book with me every where I go because it is way beyond helpful and useful. Mr. Cawdery did a wonderful job adjusting daily and providing course materials and different methods for learning. I was blessed to have a small class with a diverse of students. Learned a lot from my elders.
he give us a lot of good information about teaching experience.

I thought it was interesting that the entire ED285 was able to see our forum posts and we could respond to everyone.
I enjoyed doing the assignments, but the forums were my least favorite because I think, just for me, it was wasting a lot of my time.
Learned so much in this class that I cannot wait to use when I become a teacher.

No improvements needed at this time. He is doing a very good job and I support him 100% in his teaching career
Continue having his classes work in groups because it helps us get to know our different classmates and we learn the different ideas of our classmates.
Maybe a little bit more flexibility
Limiting the forums so we can focus more on the assignments.
I dont think he needs too, maybe assign more reading.
Loved the lessons every time! Cawdery always made class fun and interesting! One thing I'd like to suggest though is perhaps have assignments every other week instead of every week. The reason being because many students might be taking more than a couple Ed courses, and these classes are really writing intensive. It might be more beneficial for the student and their learning if these were lessened to every other week. Forums were really beneficial and vital for the weekly meetings, so I would say to definitely keep those forums to be done weekly.
N/A
The Lesson Plan presentation needs more structure, but that's about it.
22. Other comments:
Mr. Cawdery is a wonderful teacher. He kept his students engaged and his class intertesting. I like his humor. He's a great classroom manager and that is the point of the class so I'd say us, collectively, as students definitely benefited from him instructing the course. I'm a fan.
This was one of my first Education courses and it has made me more excited to start my career and become a teacher! Thank you Professor Cawdery!
You truly are an amazing educator! Thanks for a great semester.
overall was a good class just little bit inconvience
I really enjoyed this class and would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students.
Love love loved your class!
Enjoyed this course!
This is a great class and I have been applying many of the things I've learned from Mr. Cawdery to my service learning.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I think I would have got more out of this class if I trusted my instincts to go to the class at Kamaile. Hands on probably would have worked better for me.
The videos should be compatible to both PC and Macbook. I was unable to access the videos in modules with PC. I upgraded Quicktime and used other browser with upgrade, but was still unsuccessful. The help desk couldn't help me either. The only solution they could give me was to do it in the computer lab. I was frustrated because I had to purchase a Macbook in order to view them.
I was able to share and see thoughts and ideas to my other fellow classmates.
The online videos that were hosted on laulima did not play or played very slowly.
Too many assignments with little time to complete them. One assignment per week with one forum per week was what was assigned. It could have been done with better quality and more thought if he allowed more time for certain assignments.
There were to much information in one module. It is hard to apply once self when there are new information right after the other.
You need to be very diligent to get the assignments done or it is very easy to fall behind.
N/A
The hardest part about online courses is keeping yourself motivated. Once you finish one assignment, it's on to the next. And it's all your responsibility to make sure you get it done...And hope you did it right.
it was confusing figuring out where to turn things in, this is the first time i have every had an online class.
the thing that i least liked about this online course experience was that i should of taken in class because the courses I was fun to do and I could just imagine having to do it in class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The flexibility.
-The sample materials in each assignment was helpful. -The instructor was quick with his response to my emails. -I do like that Mr. Cawdery gives us the opportunity to resubmit low scoring assignments to obtain a better grade.
I definitely like interacting with other students in the forums and working on with the projects which is fun and interactive.
Relevant; real world
I feel like this class allowed me to earn my grade. Gave me a sense of achievement.
Late assignments are accepted and re-submission of assignments are very very helpful.
I liked how there was still interaction through the forums to feel like a regular in-person class.
Allows us to submit anytime we can.
What I liked most about my online course experience is the fact that it gives me the flexibility with my children. I can start my assignments when I want and turn them in before its due.
I like being able to look at the big picture of the class and see what's coming up ahead. It makes it easier for me to manage my time.
It got me familiar with how things work online.
What I like the most about this online experience was that it was fun and very organized and clear. I thought it was going to be impossible learning it online but it's great.

This is my first on line course. I can't think of any at this time.
Professor Cawdery did an amazing job on teaching his students well and his really engaged in his teaching and he wants whats best for this students.
nothing
Re-consider the course assignments and weekly modules. There are just heaps of valuable information that are not sinking in as the semester goes on.

N/A
Maybe emphasize the service learning portion of the class earlier. Once it was finally in my head that I needed to do it, it was almost crunch time already.
Be more clear as to where to turn things in online.
Mr. Cawdery did a very good job on organizing the course. Everything was straight on point syllabus and projects was clearly understandable and doable.
22. Other comments:
A very fun and energetic class!
Thank you for your time in teaching this class.
Great Teacher and great lesson plan. Although it was a challenge to keep up, considering being a full time students and full time worker, the course content emphasizes valuable tools for us to use as future educator.
Thank you for allowing more time to get the assignments done. Working full time and going to school full time is extremely difficult, but I am appreciative for the make up time for assignments.

I really enjoyed this online class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing.
I am not very good with computers, so I did not understand many of the methods which were needed to submit forums and assignments.
Some assignment submissions onky allowed attachments. This required extra steps when submitting links to multimedia projects in the cloud. Perhaps adding a text box to all assignments will callmake submitting multimedia projects easier.
Having to Navigate to different areas to get information on each assignment on laulima website.
It was an online course and it was hard to do things, other thank that N/A
There is a serious lack of organization that makes it difficult to tell what the exact requirements are for some assignments. There are too many places to find information. It would be much more beneficial to have all the requirements for a single assignment in one or two places instead of three or four in order to cut down on the inconsistencies.
This is the first time I took an online course, so it was a new experience. I miss the human interaction of being in a traditional classroom, but I appreciate that Mr. Cawdery incorporated and encouraged students to participate in a forum to share knowledge, ideas, and information. I also appreciate the many other benefits of an online course.
n/a
Nothing. Class was great!
Adjusting to the online course format was a little difficult in the beginning.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked that I was able to go at my own pace while adhering to set deadlines. In addition, the effort that Michael put in to setting up the Laulima site is amazing. It was so organized that it made it easier for me to navigate and stay on task through out the class.
I don't have time to take off of work from either one my jobs so being able to log on and get the work done without having to report to class a a HUUUGE THUMBS UP!!!!
The opening day project and how it was broken down to the different parts reach week. I also thoroughly enjoyed the service learning project.
I learned a great deal about management and I've applied some of learning sat home with my children and it has helped with a few things. Mr. Cawdery always tries to be as helpful as he can and provides his input on what he things is best.
He gave us examples of assignments that needed to be turned in, they give us time to catch up on work.
The coursework is not complicated and it was not necessary to collaborate with other students.
The flexibility to be able to complete course work with my work schedule.
its online and I can do it at home except the 10 hours of service.
That I had a week to do each assignment.
I think the expectations for the class were well organized. The assignments and due dates were clearly communicated.
I really liked that this course was well organized, and the way professor Cawdery presented the weekly topics, especially the videos.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Instead of repeating things over and over, just be direct and have things done once. I should not have to always look for different ways to find an answer to the questions.That makes is boring and frustrating and tends to lead to slacking off. Make assignments geared toward both elementary and secondary. Many of the assignments seemed geared toward elementary work.
See above.
Some of the information in the forums were a little confusing because at the bottom of the page it informed me of the next assignment which in our syllabus was not the same. A more thorough and accurate description would be better.
Maybe adding a little more examples.
Mr. Cawdery should work on explaining the actual relevance of each module of classroom management as a concept instead of using abstract reasoning. For example: "I want you to think about...bla bla bla" could be better explained as "the object of this assignment is to complete (...) thereby giving you the skills to (...)" The lack of organization previously stated should be improved upon, as well.
Personally, I really appreciated the flexibility of the assessment assignments, which allowed the student to approach each assignment in a more personal way. Some students may want more direction and rigidity. The only potential improvement would be to mix things up a bit more. For each module (each week), there would be a reading, a forum, and an assignment; so it was a bit repetitive in this sense, though the course was very effective in teaching the learning objectives of the course.

I feel that this was a fantastic course and that Mr. Cawdery did a fantastic job designing this course to really apply the concepts learned in the course modules. Each of the assignments required the student to draw on personal experience, reflect on new situations and information, and apply the vast amount of information taught in this course.

I learned so much from this course, Thank You! I learned to be more organized, and I've improved my management skills.. I am more confident in becoming a teacher now compared to before I took this class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Sometimes the instructions were unclear. Instructions given on-line can be interpreted differently from teacher to student. So, my instructor sets instructions and guidelines, but I may interpret them differently than how he wanted it to be competed.
The amount of work done in the short time period. Since everything is online that also requires a larger workload for the teacher to properly assess the students' progress. An in class meeting would be beneficial when it comes to discussions and presenting our ideas.
service learning was a little frustrating because this was my first time doing a service learning assignment.
The one thing I didn't like was how short the class was. It seemed like a lot to do and a lot of information to retain in only 6 weeks. If it was a little longer class, I think it would have been perfect.
I have no problems with the course or the curriculum, just summer for me was bad timing(condensed and accelerated). I really gained a lot in such a short period.
The thing that I liked least was not being able to have him explain things to me face to face.
I think the material learned in this course would have been better understood if taken in an actual classroom setting for myself. But the class itself was great.
While I have a personal dislike for online courses, there is nothing wrong with taking them in most cases. That said, the only thing I did not like about the online course was how it was a -summer- course.
I liked some of the forums least. That being said the other ones were a lot of fun to do.
The information Mr. Cawdery gave us through the modules is very helpful. I enjoy every video and article in it.
the workload
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how I could do my work at my own pace. I didn't have to wake up early to drive to school and sit in a classroom. I could do it on my own time.
Professor Cawdery was very clear and detailed on what he wanted us to do. He gave feedback that was relevant and showed that he took the time to view our work. This teacher was very professional and approachable.
i like the different learning strategies and procedures that was incorporated into this course.
I liked how convenient it was to access assignments and lessons. I could do so on my laptop or on my iPad and it made it a lot easier to follow along. The other thing I liked was it was on my own time, there was no scheduled time that I absolutely needed to be in class, which was very promising since I'm a new mother and juggling my part-time job.
So many useful resources and the info provided by Mr. Cawdery. I know I am benefiting from from some of my assignments thanks to Mr. Cawdery and Ms. Erin Thompson. Some co-workers in the construction academy program are considering taking this course soon.
I loved the fact that the course could adjust to my changing schedule.
I liked the creative freedom we had in this class.
I liked that Professor Cawdery made himself very available for all of us, and made his power points with audio as well, it made things more personal.
I like the creative assignments most because it allowed me to show my future class ideas and what not.

this class is awesome.
I'd just like mention that Professor Cawdery was very understanding throughout the entire course. I had a lot of family problems that came up throughout the course and it made it more than difficult to stick to deadlines. But as I explained each situation that I was in Professor Cawdery understood and simply gave me the advice to "breathe and focus". I don't know if he realizes this or not, but in those few words he helped me more than anyone can ever imagine. This was a great course taught by a great Professor. I enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you!!!!
I am now going through my first week of students at Roosevelt High and most of my assignments like procedures and rules are all in place. plus I went over my syllabus and lesson plans on the first day. Much Mahalo Teach!
It was a great first time online class for me!
strongly recommend his class!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I didn't really have anything that I liked least about the instructor or the class. The only thing I'd say I disliked was that the class was at a late time for me and I didn't feel motivated to attend class regularly.
I thought it was ahrd at times when I didn't understand an assignment.
That everything was online and that when the computer had glitches it sent the wrong assignments to the wrong place and blocked me out of sending the correct ones
There wasn't anything I disliked. I thought this class was very organized, with good explanations and examples. Mr. Cawdery was very helpful and on top of his game.
Having people read your assignemnts
Alot of projects.
I don't like submitting assignments online, I'd much rather submit hard copies in class. I am more of a verbal person to person learner.
I did not take this class online.
I liked how he explained everything so clearly (: Definitely made me understand the assignments way better.
I didn't like the technical difficulties. Some videos didn't appear clearly.
Nothing, it was just my fault for my bad time management skills.
I think online courses are convenient and a great thing when you work fulltime, but I think it is more fun and you get more out of a class when you actually go to it. I learned a lot, but I think the one on one with the teacher would have been more beneficial.
It was only on my part, i haven't been keeping up because i kept forgetting to check laulima. But really the class was great.
Motivation to go online and complete assignments. Towards the end of the semester I got lazy and didn't meet deadlines. Shame on me. In person classes are a little more easier in completing assignments on time, I'd have no choice, I'd see the teacher every other day.
Some of the instructions were unclear and confusing, but nothing totally unforgiving.
Nothing, everything was put into simple explanation
My least favorite element was the lack of face to face interaction. Other than that the class was great and very helpful. I feel that this class may be more effective if done in person. The online option is great but as I want to be a teacher in a classroom I think I would want to observe this situation in person.
Nothing I enjoyed everything I learned and did.
The lack of face-to-face time. This was my first experience with a DL course, and I have learned that it is not my preferred format. This is at no fault of the instructor of course, as I felt as though Mr. Cawdery was well organized.
Sometimes hard to gauge how to complete assignments when there's no face to face interaction.
It was hard to keep up with everything with no face to face class, but overall I was okay
The fact that if I had a question, it wouldn't be answered immediately, like if I was in a face to face class.
I thought that everything was great in this course and I would really recommend this course to anyone who is interested.
This is my 1rst online class and I feel that I had trouble doing the computer stuff. It took time to figure out but I should get the hang of it by my next online class.
Sometimes I was unclear as to what exactly he wanted with assignments.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
There were many quality work samples to help guide us and show us what our finish product should look like.
I liked that Laulima was easy to understand because Mr Cawdery provided voice and video instructions on the site. I also liked how the assignments were easy to submit online.
I liked how we turned everything in online. That was easier for me rather than turning in millions of paper work.
It wasnt constantly more work to turn in next class period.
I liked the different forums and assignments we had, it covered a lot of different things but it wasn't to broad where you were lost. Mr. Cawdery took us on a journey and built us up steadily!
I like how we can chat with the others about the class
Very fun teacher and is just a great teacher!
I liked that we had the opportunity to resubmit online to correct and perfect our work.
I did not take this class online.
I liked how he gave examples of the work that needed to be done. It gave me a better understanding of all assignments.
Everything online was well organized and structured. Due dates and instructions were clear.
Nothing, I wish I could have taken this class in person :(
It is convenient, you can work on the material when time is available.
I liked the reading assignments and being able to rewind information.
Filled with a lot of information. Much needed for an online course.
I liked that there was an expected reciprocation between my classmates and I so that I could gauge how I was performing. Seeing my fellow classmates' work, thoughts, feedback definitely helped me improve my quality of work.
length of time to do activites.
The readings and assignments. The forums and modules were understandable and fun and i had an outline presented to me every week for what was due. I was updated immediately if something changed and I am able to view assignment due dates and descriptions at any time.
The assignments were challenging and helped me to learn a lot of new and different things.
The autonomy was kind of nice.
The flexibility to work on assignments in the evening after work.
I liked how helpful the instructor was even though we never met face to face
I like the convienece, and that all materials/assignments are written down and I can refer back to any information from prior modules.
I liked that even though it was an online course it was still easy to communicate with Professor Cawdery! He replied back fast with feedback that was asked for and he was very supportive.
All students participated in discussions creating a friendly environment where we could all voice our opinions.
I like how the contents of the coarse relates directly to the classroom. I will surely use the techniques learned in this class when it my turn to teach my class.
The assignments were really fun!! They were real life things we would use in teaching.

13. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked that professor Cawdery was very knowledgeable about the course material. Teaching a class on teaching is difficult but he made it seem otherwise. He was very friendly and willing to help and he often presented the course work in an interesting, hands-on way.
The final project.
I liked the group projects/works in this class.
Learning about the different groups that we will teach when we have our own classroom. And methods and stratergies to help better their learning.
Allowing students to explore material by viewing websites and articles instead of a straight lecture.
I enjoyed the entire scope of the material covered and felt that it was imperative to the preparation of any aspiring educator. Michael Cawdery is a phenomenal instructor that not only constructed his curriculum around conveying pertinent information, but also helped greatly when there was a concept or idea that needed clarification. Michael Cawdery exceeded my expectations as an instructor which in turn made the content of the course much easier to grasp and to put into context. I would highly recommend Michael Cawdery as an instructor to my peers.
i liked the new strategies we learned for each students disability
Presentations at end of semester, group work/discussions, classmates that showed up to class.
Michael always returns my calls and he makes the time to help me with the problems I having in this course.
Ways to assist students with disabilities, and always keeping an open mind with students and their personal lives.
The best aspect of the course was that we go over the homework throughout the week so that by the time Sunday comes (homework due date), we have an idea on how to complete the work. I also like the positive atmosphere of the class.
I like how he always had an answer to my questions and he didn't treat us like we were below him just because we are students. He is a very fun and entertaining professor and you can tell that he really cares for his students.
14. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I'm not a fan of online assignments because I personally just forget to submit them by a certain time. Other than that, I did not dislike anything about the course.
Reading long articles.
There was nothing that I like least everything was great.
honestly, the readings. If everything was a youtube video, that would be cool.
the environment is in a relaxed setting and everyone gets along with each other
Nothing.
class lectures
Some students could not keep up with the class due to other class workload and lack of time management, jobs, social obligations etc... As a result, Attendance in class was sometimes low.
Not grading our assignments on time.
N/A
I didn't like how our Final Project was explained to us. I think the instructions should be more precise and clear.
15. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course is excellent. Very thorough and everything profess Cawdery presents is relevant. The final project, in which we needed to go out into the education community and meet with an educator or organization, was a great way to have us internalize everything we had learned throughout the semester.
It's cool.
Excellent! I love this class. It helped me to see the classroom in a different way towards students.
I really do enjoy this class. I reccomend this course to EVERYONE who wants to be a teacher. get exposed now and learn more later.
excellent because I feel more prepared to tackle students with challenges
Wonderful. I know that this course is actually an elective ED course, but in my humble opinion this is a course that contains curriculum that should be required for all AAT students. Honestly, I cannot see becoming a teacher without covering the information that was taught in this class.
i liked this course it was very life changing and inspirational for me whewn i become a teacher. i learned many strategies and different disabilities in this course.
It is the first face to face for this course and went pretty well. Mr. Cawdery was accommodating and flexible to help students achieve their goal.
Michael is very understanding and available when you need him.
Excellent, Professor is easy to understand, always available for help, always replies to emails, always making the students feel comfortable.
This course was very informative. I like how there's a reoccuring theme throughtout the semester. Overall, this course was good.
16. Other comments:
He's a great teacher.
I would highly recommend this class to other future teachers. It was a great course and I hope many of the future teachers take this class. Thank you Mr. Cawdery!!
Great job Michael! Your skills are quite refined, and your attitude and demeanor are highly conducive to producing successful students. Thank you for your time and effort this semester.
Interesting class but depressing subject matter.
No other comments at this time.
One of the best Instructors on campus !

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how Michael Cawdery accepts late work assignments.
It was so organized. Although it was not a face-to-face class, I was able to gain several knowleadge via Laulima that I will be able to apply into my actual situation.
I loved the class, and the information it provided about classroom management for teachers. It is really helpful and will also be helpful in the future!
Good materials to prepare for teaching
Video clips were helpful
I really liked the way Professor Cawdery helped me out via email. Anytime I had a question, he always responded in a very timely manner. I especially liked how all the ED classes in laulima are almost exactly the same (format wise) so no matter what professor I have, I know the format of their Laulima tab will be similar.
Organization
i enjoyed the forums, they were always very interesting
I really liked the text book and how the course walked us through it and had us think about all aspects of our teaching and have us work up presentations, first day scripts, room organization, etc.
The forums and most of the assignments.
All assignments were very interesting and excellent put together. A lot of times the assignments and reading helped me in my own class.
Everything, even though I had/have the experience of working in the education field it is always great to learn and gain new knowledge.
I liked the forums and the assignments which was really resourceful for me in my Educational Journey about learning more about education.
I liked every thing about the course. The instructor made each and every class enjoyable and interesting. I hope to have this instructor for more of my education courses.
I enjoyed the the entire course from the material it's self to the activities, group work, and projects
The videos we watched in class.
I liked the fact that he took the time to make sure we understood the class and objectives. He gave me sense of seeing what it is to become a teacher. Also he made class enjoyable and made sure me were okay and if not then he was always there to help me.
He used videos, hands-on activities, and incorporated group work. Very understanding and appreciative. Encouraged students to share their ideas and made everyone's responses relevant.
The aspects that I really enjoyed were the classroom display, classroom management, watching Harry Wong emphasizing the importance of classroom procedures and routines.
ALL
i liked the interaction that happened in class every class and we are always engaged
hands on learning
I liked that there was a classroom work day as well as a strong internet component.
The aspects that I liked best was that the professor gave much time to turn in or complete assignments, gave fast responses to e-mails, and offered help and possible resources and/or services to help me succeed in the class.
That he is always willing to help his students no matter what.
I enjoy working in class and doing group activities. We did hands on activities and things that we can apply to our daily life.
I liked that Mr. Cawdery always made the class fun every time I stepped into the classroom.
that we talked about the work that was going to be on the fourms so it made the work easier to do when it came time to do it.
What I like about this course is that Mr. Cawdery will work with students with clarity and any student will feel comfortable to approach him.
He was very consistent with helping his students when they needed his assistance.
Mr cawderys willingness to help us
Prof. Cawdery is a very professional and personal instructor. Nowadays, this is a very rare quality among all teachers of all education levels. I highly recommend Micheal Cawdery for anyone interested in teaching, but also for anyone interested in counseling or those who have a passion for looking into the ethical issues involving public education. He is very persuasive in his views about teaching while at the same time, he is open to outside opinion. The most important thing was that he practiced what he preached. Prof. Cawdery focused on the bigger picture; making learning enjoyable and effective by motivating students to learn, retain and apply their skills. This is probably one of the best courses I've ever taken since I began college. God bless and enjoy the break!
The big projects were broken up into parts. Liked that, also liked that there were models and examples for each portion. Made it relevant
I enjoyed the forums. I was able to view perspectives of different students which helped me understand topics on another level in which I had not the first time. In addition, I enjoyed the videos that we watched in class in which we had to identify classroom management strageties.
I liked the Opening Day project the best because it showed me how the first day of school can be used to set the mood of your class throughout the whole school year.
He is an active and good instructor. Most of the assignments were relevant and helpful.
I like how Michael Cawdery taught this course with a lot of passion and knowledge. He is a very great speaker and encourages his students to do their best. He is a great mentor and gives the best advice about classroom management.
I liked how we were able to work together as groups and the fact that we can resubmit our assignments if we feel like we didn't put our all into it.
Lesson Plan and service learning were fun! Also hands-on activities!
Creating my own class, lesson plans, parent letter, and having the opportunity to work with students through service learning.
The way we had more discussion versus lecture kept me more interested, was a nice change.
A lot of knowledge provided. Helpful resources
I liked the team building activities.
video clip examples. The topics for lesson plans were open to any subject.
The aspects that I like the best is learning how to make a classroom successful. This curriculum was based on how to become a successful teacher, classroom management, lesson plans, how to keep students in tact, rules and procedures. These were by far the most useful information that I have learned in this class.
I like all of the information that was presented; I learned a lot. There were a variety of learning activities that we did in class and not just lecture. It was well organized and I knew exactly when things were due. I like that the teacher was available to help me and was understanding. I also liked that the teacher sended out weekly reminders for our assignments; it helps people who are very busy and may forget.
online forums and assignments.
The class was very easy to understand while also being fun and interesting.
I love this class from the beginning but as it got to the middle it got harder for me because im still learning my time management. i love the way Michael Start of his class with an ice breaker. i got to know my peer and was able to be comfortable throughout the course because i know i was not alone though we all came from different country culture i was able to connect with the student. Michael is definitely an effective teacher i would recommend him to others student and if i had money i will love to take his class again because is worth taking it.
Internship
Very personal towards course and students.
I appreciated the fact that our instructor was very quick to answer to any questions we had on our assignments.
16. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
N/A
None
None everything was good
Assignments were tough at times
Since Dr. Cawdery has changed the course around from previous semesters the titles do not match what we are actually working on. Also some proof reading would be good.
Reading...
A times the forum, Assignments, and Module was not clear which took me several times reading and reading until I got it.
The only hard thing about it is trying to balance getting an assignment in every sunday with my other 3 classes. Which I've gotten everyone in except these past 3 which I'm hoping to get catch up on.
I disliked all the assignments.
see above box
The time of the class was the only thing I struggled with but I know that it is something that is hard to change
The assignments were lengthy and I found it hard to manage dealing with so much other things.
N/A
No comment
I enjoyed every aspect of the course, yes for me some were stressful only because I am not computer literate but through this course I learned to use the computer and was able to accomplish and complete the required assignments.
none
not understand online assignments
There was no aspect of this course which I found non-helpful in my education journey.
I can't think about anything I didn't like about the course
Taking it online because it was challenging
I liked everything we did in class. nothing was bad.
I don't think I had a time that I didn't like. Mr. Cawdery's class was always fun and active.
that the period was short so we did not get to as much as we could have
The reading assignments on laulima.
I can't say much. Because I wasn't familier with modern technology, the most difficult part was figuring out how to use the forums, submit work via online and find certain articles. But by mid-semester, I had enough help to figure out how to access stuff like that.
Nothing
I really cannot say much. I really enjoyed this course.
The Forums are what I least liked about the course.
I am having trouble with the service learning assignment. I have contacted each of 3 school, multiple times and have gotten no response. I started contacting six weeks ago. Now, I know there is not enough time to complete the work and I know that I will fail the course. This assignment should be eliminated or the professor needs to have an active role in recruiting schools to comply.
I least liked the Lesson Plan Presentation because I was kind of unprepared. I really wished that the forum about the LP presentations was assigned to us the week before the presenations that way it would have been clear exactly what was wanted from the presenation. I did not know that we could present it through a powerpoint so I only had my Lesson plan to show. Though it is good he gives us a chance to still make changes to our lesson plan online and resubmit them.

There was nothing that i did not like.
N/a
It seemed like everything we did in class was what the assignment for that week was. Which would have been great, but I do all my assignments ahead of time so coming to class was kind of a waste.
most assignment due on a weekly basis straight
All the forums.
There was no aspect I least liked, because all of the information the professor taught, and explained were all important. The only thing I had a hard time understanding was always the directions for some assignments. There was rubrics, but some of the rubrics weren't clear, and they were just confusing.
attendence.
There isn't anything negative that I found about this course.
What I like least about the course is because is to short. I wish it was little bit longer so i can gain all things that i need to learned to be a success student. Also because it take me time to learn the course. I was really starting to get to know what i was doing in the classroom and what was expected of me.
Mandatory interaction with other students
N/A
I did not like the lack of clarity on the instructions of certain assignments. Some assignments seemed unclear, and there were a few of them that had different criteria listed on the rubric and the assignment instructions.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...

10/10
Good
Great course. Everyone in education should take this course. We get bits and pieces of classroom management in other classes but nothing this thorough.
Despite the overload from all my classes, I really liked this course.
Awesome I did recommend this course to one of the teacher that I work with, only because she said she was struggling in her class and didn't know what to do. One big one was the childern was out of control, she has no authority over them. Rules are broken with no consequences and procedures are not followed through, This help me plenty.
Excellent
He is a good professor for an online class he really explained things well to me. He got back to me in a timely manner. Was helpful in explaining my assignments to me. I would recommend his class to others.

This is a great class.
Great Professor and a useful course to help with future teachers.
Great intro to ed course by mr cawdery
This is one of the best courses I've ever taken. As an added perk, I met a ton of new friends here! Everyday there almost seemed like a social gathering (fellowship haha) as opposed to school.
Excellent teaching, excellent course.
Throughout this semester I have left every class with more food for my thoughts. In other words, I left enlightened with insight on management skills within my own personal life and work. This class has definately improved my teaching stragetis.
I would give it a 9 out of 10. Having an "engaging" professor always makes a class more alive. Professor Cawdery is awesome so his class was awesome.
good
I think this course was excellent because the class was very interactive and involved a lot of hands-on activities. It is so helpful to take this class for future teachers.
This course is very knowledgable and very interactive in terms of actually working with teachers from other schools and creating lesson plans and procedures that we will need to learn how to make.
Its an excellent course, even though i learned most of the things in this class already in teachers academy, i still loved it because it refreshed my memory and it was interesting to learn more.
Excellent course. Really showed me how important managing a classroom is and what difference it can make.
It is a good course I would recommend. Nothing unreasonable or difficult.
Excellent. I was able to obtain a lot of knowledge and could use these in future references/resources. Ability to apply to career.
It was good.
I thought this course along with Professor Cawdery's knowledge of subject matter was very helpful and informative.
I would refer anyone to take this course, the professor is fun! laid back allows a variety of ways to turn in work! This professor provides great insight based on past experiences, he makes the course relate-able
It's a good course that challenged me.
GREAT!
I feel that mr. Cawdery is an excellent teacher. His lessons are clear and engaging. He also goes out of his way to ensure his student's success inside and outside of the classroom.
My overall evaluation of this course is the best I have ever learned. Im glad that it's been though in School.
Learned a lot of resources that I can use in my own classroom in the future.
Overall, I thought the course was good. I feel as if it did a good job scaffolding students do design a lesson plan and helped new teachers consider details that would help them down the road.

Good teacher
Mr. Cawdery is a great instructor.
Michael Cawdry is an excellent teacher. All material was interesting, enjoyable and well explained. I enjoyed going to class every week to learn the new material he would be presenting to the class.
Loved it
He is a great teacher!!!
The professor and class was great.
Mahalo for your time and passion in teaching this class.
He did very good and he does not set you up to fail. He helps you throughout the semeter.
As a piece of advice to anybody planning to join this class, be sure you become familier with technology used throughout the course. (Forums, Online articles etc.) And be prepared to work weekly. It'll be a lot less stressful keeping up a little very day then procrastinating all the work until the last day.
Very cool class. The staff and faculty of the AAT program rocks! :)
I enjoyed ED285 and I would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students that are taking ED classes.
N/A
I would recommend this course to other students that want to get their AAT degree!
I had a great semester in this class!!!
Good teacher.
Awesome teacher.
Create clearer rubrics/directions for assignments You make a lot of rubrics for some assignments which is also confusing, for example all the guidelines, some aren't necessary.... I understand they are to help us but sometimes you give out too much guidelines. I end up getting confused, because you hand out guidelines to help us then you have rubrics online which doesn't really match well with the guidelines.
Thank YOU Michael!
