17. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The textbook and module info.
The lesson planning phase and opening day portion of the class.
Specifically the strategies of classroom management - procedures, classroom setup, dealing with the disruptive student.
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.
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.
Case study
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
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.
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
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.
I loved that you could submit assignments on a variety of formats such as video, powerpoint, word doc.
18. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
na
Everything was valuable. I believe this class needs part II to dive further into some of the content.
Some of the video clips could be omitted to keep the modules more simplified.
N/A (refer to answer above)
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.
None
I believe most of the material were focused on elementary school levels and not much in regards to high school or a CTE setting.
Overall, there really wasn't any fluff that could be left out. Everything was valuable.
Overall, the class was great! I couldn't ask for anything more.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
na
His teaching of this course was great. In addition, he also coordinated the Praxis workshop for us who needed the help.
Giving students notice of when assignments will be graded and returned would be appreciated.
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.
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.
none
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.
Clarify a few of the rubrics and maybe offer some examples for the E&A assignments to provide a better understanding of expectations.
You should touch on the subject of Educational Reform more and create modules specific to that topic.
22. Other comments:
Great outline for this class.
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.
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.
Great class it was my pleasure
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!
LOVE THIS CLASS! Even those not looking into a career in education should take this for all the valuable life lessons.
Awesome 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.
that is new for me, but that is convenient.
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.
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.
maybe save more time for study,learn more infromation with other students.
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.

Nothing, very good teacher. made the course fun and interesting.
Explain the weekly forums more.
he can find out some new artical or vedio put in course.
Overall, being in a new setting and being able to adjust and adapt in the area that we were given for the class.
Provide more engaging activities in class, more hands on and interactive activities.
22. Other comments:
Loved this class, very helpful and meaningful!
he give us a lot of good information about teaching experience.
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.

Sometimes Laulima does not allow me to post forums.
I am not a fan of technology.
very convenient and easy to do! You get the same amount of experience as you would in the class room setting. I have learned alot, considering this is my first education class!
Learned so much in this class that I cannot wait to use when I become a teacher.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
Limiting the forums so we can focus more on the assignments.
The Lesson Plan presentation needs more structure, but that's about it.
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.
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.
No improvements needed at this time. He is doing a very good job and I support him 100% in his teaching career
I dont think he needs too, maybe assign more reading.
Maybe a little bit more flexibility

I really enjoyed this class and would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students.
This is a great class and I have been applying many of the things I've learned from Mr. Cawdery to my service learning.
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!
Love love loved your class!
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.
You truly are an amazing educator! Thanks for a great semester.
overall was a good class just little bit inconvience
Enjoyed this course!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
You need to be very diligent to get the assignments done or it is very easy to fall behind.
The online videos that were hosted on laulima did not play or played very slowly.
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.
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.
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.
I was able to share and see thoughts and ideas to my other fellow classmates.
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 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.
There were to much information in one module. It is hard to apply once self when there are new information right after the other.
it was confusing figuring out where to turn things in, this is the first time i have every had an online class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how there was still interaction through the forums to feel like a regular in-person class.
Relevant; real world
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.
-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 feel like this class allowed me to earn my grade. Gave me a sense of achievement.
Allows us to submit anytime we can.
I definitely like interacting with other students in the forums and working on with the projects which is fun and interactive.
The flexibility.
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.
Late assignments are accepted and re-submission of assignments are very very helpful.
It got me familiar with how things work online.

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.
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.
n/a
Mr. Cawdery did a very good job on organizing the course. Everything was straight on point syllabus and projects was clearly understandable and doable.
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.
Be more clear as to where to turn things in online.

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.
Thank you for your time in teaching this class.

A very fun and energetic class!
I really enjoyed this online 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.

Nothing. Class was great!
Adjusting to the online course format was a little difficult in the beginning.
I am not very good with computers, so I did not understand many of the methods which were needed to submit forums and assignments.
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.
Having to Navigate to different areas to get information on each assignment on laulima website.
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.
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.

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.
He gave us examples of assignments that needed to be turned in, they give us time to catch up on work.
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 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 flexibility to be able to complete course work with my work schedule.
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.
The coursework is not complicated and it was not necessary to collaborate with other students.
The opening day project and how it was broken down to the different parts reach week. I also thoroughly enjoyed the service learning project.
its online and I can do it at home except the 10 hours of service.
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?
Maybe adding a little more examples.
-
n/a; I think it was well organized. I enjoyed the 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.
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.
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.
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.
See above.

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.
Overall, it's been a pleasure being apart of this online course and I don't usually do well with online 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 information Mr. Cawdery gave us through the modules is very helpful. I enjoy every video and article in it.
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.
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.
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.
I liked some of the forums least. That being said the other ones were a lot of fun to do.
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.
The thing that I liked least was not being able to have him explain things to me face to face.
the workload
service learning was a little frustrating because this was my first time doing a service learning assignment.
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 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.
I loved the fact that the course could adjust to my changing schedule.
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 like the creative assignments most because it allowed me to show my future class ideas and what not.
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 liked the creative freedom we had in this class.
Professor Cawdery went out of his way to help
i like the different learning strategies and procedures that was incorporated into this course.

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!
this class is awesome.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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
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.
Having people read your assignemnts
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.
I liked how he explained everything so clearly (: Definitely made me understand the assignments way better.
I did not take this class online.
I thought it was ahrd at times when I didn't understand an assignment.
I didn't like the technical difficulties. Some videos didn't appear clearly.
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.
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.
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.
It was hard to keep up with everything with no face to face class, but overall I was okay
Some of the instructions were unclear and confusing, but nothing totally unforgiving.
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.
Nothing I enjoyed everything I learned and did.
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.
Sometimes hard to gauge how to complete assignments when there's no face to face interaction.
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.
Nothing, it was just my fault for my bad time management skills.
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 I was unclear as to what exactly he wanted with assignments.
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.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It wasnt constantly more work to turn in next class period.
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.
There were many quality work samples to help guide us and show us what our finish product should look like.
I like how we can chat with the others about the class
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 liked how he gave examples of the work that needed to be done. It gave me a better understanding of all assignments.
I did not take this class online.
I liked how we turned everything in online. That was easier for me rather than turning in millions of paper work.
Everything online was well organized and structured. Due dates and instructions were clear.
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.
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.
I liked the reading assignments and being able to rewind information.
I liked how helpful the instructor was even though we never met face to face
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.
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 challenging and helped me to learn a lot of new and different things.
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.
The flexibility to work on assignments in the evening after work.
Filled with a lot of information. Much needed for an online course.
Nothing, I wish I could have taken this class in person :(
The autonomy was kind of nice.
The assignments were really fun!! They were real life things we would use in teaching.
All students participated in discussions creating a friendly environment where we could all voice our opinions.
It is convenient, you can work on the material when time is available.

I truly recommend this class for any student pursuing a career in teaching. The content of this class will be needed for any classroom that is organized and is ready for a child to learn.
Professor Cawdery was awesome! He is very detailed in what is expected with this course and he provides alot of examples to make sure we understand all task for each module!
Awesome and chill teacher!! Great text book and PowerPoint presentations.

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.
Allowing students to explore material by viewing websites and articles instead of a straight lecture.
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.
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.
Michael always returns my calls and he makes the time to help me with the problems I having in this course.
Learning about the different groups that we will teach when we have our own classroom. And methods and stratergies to help better their learning.
I liked the group projects/works in this class.
Presentations at end of semester, group work/discussions, classmates that showed up to class.
Ways to assist students with disabilities, and always keeping an open mind with students and their personal lives.
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
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.
the environment is in a relaxed setting and everyone gets along with each other
I didn't like how our Final Project was explained to us. I think the instructions should be more precise and clear.
Not grading our assignments on time.
honestly, the readings. If everything was a youtube video, that would be cool.
There was nothing that I like least everything was great.
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.
N/A
Nothing.
class lectures
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 because I feel more prepared to tackle students with challenges
This course was very informative. I like how there's a reoccuring theme throughtout the semester. Overall, this course was good.
Michael is very understanding and available when you need him.
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! I love this class. It helped me to see the classroom in a different way towards students.
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.
Excellent, Professor is easy to understand, always available for help, always replies to emails, always making the students feel comfortable.
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.
16. Other comments:
He's a great teacher.
No comments.
No other comments at this time.
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!!
Interesting class but depressing subject matter.
One of the best Instructors on campus !
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.

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how Michael Cawdery accepts late work assignments.
The forums and most of the assignments.
Good materials to prepare for teaching
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 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.
I liked the forums and the assignments which was really resourceful for me in my Educational Journey about learning more about education.
All assignments were very interesting and excellent put together. A lot of times the assignments and reading helped me in my own class.
Video clips were helpful
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!
Organization
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.
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 enjoyed the forums, they were always very interesting
I liked that there was a classroom work day as well as a strong internet component.
The videos we watched in class.
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.
The aspects that I really enjoyed were the classroom display, classroom management, watching Harry Wong emphasizing the importance of classroom procedures and routines.
i liked the interaction that happened in class every class and we are always engaged
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.
hands on learning
ALL
I enjoyed the the entire course from the material it's self to the activities, group work, and projects
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.
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 enjoy working in class and doing group activities. We did hands on activities and things that we can apply to our daily life.
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.
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!
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.
The big projects were broken up into parts. Liked that, also liked that there were models and examples for each portion. Made it relevant
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.
I liked that Mr. Cawdery always made the class fun every time I stepped into the classroom.
That he is always willing to help his students no matter what.
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.
He is an active and good instructor. Most of the assignments were relevant and helpful.
He was very consistent with helping his students when they needed his assistance.
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.
online forums and assignments.
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.
The way we had more discussion versus lecture kept me more interested, was a nice change.
The class was very easy to understand while also being fun and interesting.
Very personal towards course and students.
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.
A lot of knowledge provided. Helpful resources
Internship
video clip examples. The topics for lesson plans were open to any subject.
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.
Creating my own class, lesson plans, parent letter, and having the opportunity to work with students through service learning.
Lesson Plan and service learning were fun! Also hands-on activities!
I liked the team building activities.
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?
Reading...
N/A
None
I disliked all the assignments.
A times the forum, Assignments, and Module was not clear which took me several times reading and reading until I got it.
None everything was good
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.
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.
Assignments were tough at times
There was no aspect of this course which I found non-helpful in my education journey.
The assignments were lengthy and I found it hard to manage dealing with so much other things.
see above box
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
N/A
not understand online assignments
The time of the class was the only thing I struggled with but I know that it is something that is hard to change
No comment
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.
I liked everything we did in class. nothing was bad.
that the period was short so we did not get to as much as we could have
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.
The Forums are what I least liked about the course.
Nothing
I can't think about anything I didn't like about the course
I don't think I had a time that I didn't like. Mr. Cawdery's class was always fun and active.
Taking it online because it was challenging
I really cannot say much. I really enjoyed this 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.
The reading assignments on laulima.
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.
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.
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.
There isn't anything negative that I found about this course.
N/A
most assignment due on a weekly basis straight
Mandatory interaction with other students
N/A
N/a
There was nothing that i did not like.
All the forums.
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...
I would recommend him to another student. Though I did not have the opportunity to take this course in class, I was able to learn new information that I will be able to apply as a future educator.
Despite the overload from all my classes, I really liked this course.
Good! I enjoyed it!
excellent!
Excellent! Every student who is going into teaching and teachers who are already teaching, should go through this course at least once!
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.
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.
I will recommend it to others
This class is very helpful!!
10/10
Great course. Everyone in education should take this course. We get bits and pieces of classroom management in other classes but nothing this thorough.

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 was very helpful in my filed. I learned alot about becoming a teacher and creating a lesson plan to start of teaching.
This is a great class.
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.
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.
Excellent teaching, excellent course.
that the course is helpful to apply to actual situations and it was an eye- opening learning experiences as to how to be an effective instructor
My overall evaluation of this course was it was fun. It kept the mind going. Always active.
That it's a good course to take and I reccomend this teacher
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.
good
Great Professor and a useful course to help with future teachers.
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
GREAT!
My overall evaluation of this course is the best I have ever learned. Im glad that it's been though in School.
It is a good course I would recommend. Nothing unreasonable or difficult.
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.
Learned a lot of resources that I can use in my own classroom in the future.
It's a good course that challenged me.
Excellent. I was able to obtain a lot of knowledge and could use these in future references/resources. Ability to apply to career.
I thought this course along with Professor Cawdery's knowledge of subject matter was very helpful and informative.
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.
Excellent course. Really showed me how important managing a classroom is and what difference it can 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.
It was good.
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
Mahalo for your time and passion in teaching this class.
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.
He is a great teacher!!!
The professor and class was great.
Loved it
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.
I enjoyed ED285 and I would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students that are taking ED classes.
Very cool class. The staff and faculty of the AAT program rocks! :)
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!
Good teacher.
Awesome teacher.

I had a great semester in this class!!!

That we could turn in assignments online yet still have in person classes 4 times a semester to check in and find out details about specific assignments.
The professors! :)
I like the clear expectations that are told to us from the very start. The teachers are awesome, and very helpful when help is needed!
I like that we met once a month.
The food.
I liked how there were no "real" due dates. The professors were basically pretty lenient about assignments. As long as we complete our whole assessment binder by the end of the semester, then it's goos.
How helpful the teachers were, and how the modules were set up really helped me get through the course with no problems. And the teachers were the best!

I really like how Michael is always willing to help his students. He is in his office if he's not at class and always has time to go over any questions students may have, concerns about the course, and even sits down with his students and takes the time to help them improve on their course work.
My experience at LCC with the AAT instructors have been one of the best educational journeys I have endured thus far!
Great course, and the teachers care and that really makes a difference!
Thanks for a good semester!
Awesome awesome teacher!

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
flexibility in assignments.
It was a convenient way of completing the class.
I liked how we had forums to complete which gave me the option to get to know my fellow classmates and their variety of thinking habits.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
excellent
He is a good teacher, and utilizes online tools to make the class a more enriching experience.
He is an amazing teacher who has ambition about Education and is very knowledgable about the subject! We need more teachers in this world with his thinking and personality!

14. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Because all of the assignments and forums were online it was so easy to forget that we had work to finish. For me I'm the type of person who like to turn in work during class instead of online. The reason is because I am handing it in person I'm more motivated to do work in a timely manner, instead of waiting for Sunday to finish it because I know that I have a lot of time.I'd recommend having some assignments and forums be turned in online and other be turned in in person.That way students are given options on how to turn in assignments.
I'm not really much of an online course student so the challenge of doing my work online made it difficult for me to remember to turn in work on time or get the peer reviewing that I can usually expect in a face-to-face course.
How theres so much. It got overwhelming at times just looking at modules and outline of the week. Also how we constantly had to check if there were assignments due while we still had forums.
sometimes the instructions weren't clear enough.
I don't learn well in an online course.
N/a
I wish some forums could be anonymous.
having to rush home from work to meet deadline.
I'm not an online fanatic, I rather attend face to face course.
From working on the forums and assignments, it was something different. I honestly didn't like having to do forums for both online classes.
I don't like how the modules are done. I mean they're ok, but I find myself sometimes forgetting which module we're on and I have to go through them one by one until I get to whichever one we're on at the time.
Everything about this course was great!!
Feedback on assignments was not as quick as I would have liked.
The Laulima navigation within the courses. No clearn way to back out of where you are without backing out of the entire subsection of the course. Other than that this course was great.
I like everything about the course.
I didn't like the discrepancies between specified due dates.
The video clips were not playing and it was very frustrating.
work load was very high, the distribution of grading was weighted to the end. the final requirements were extensive and offered little. his web site was disorganized and i had problems understanding what was required. requirements about the same assignments were written differently in separate areas of his web site. the material covered was just common sense. his assignments reviewed extreme cases in mainland inner-cities that do not connect with what is happening in Hawaii.
Nothing. I like this class.
The 10 hours of service learning. It was a great experience and overall gratifying but posed a slight inconvenience.
I actually found I enjoyed this online class, so i didn't dislike anything
I would have loved to take this class on campus and not online. Some aspects were difficult to understand, but Cawdery was available through email/Laulima to help. It was hard to keep up for me.
I did not take this course online. However, this course had a lot of assignments due online. I didn't like it sometimes because I would encounter hard time understanding the instructions online.
What I liked least about the online was that I just needed more time to submit my work, so that part is my fault.
There is not one thing i don't like about this course.
I had no problems with the workload but I had various issues with computer and laulima site. I had several glitches happen when I was turning in work. Although online is very helpful, be aware of the problems you'd face.
N/A
That everything (assignments mostly) had to be turned in online. The forums were a bit difficult, because I had never done something like that before and I had to open up with people I never met before (people from other classes could read them).
Sometimes the online instructions for assignments were unclear.
Like all my Ed classes, I see the forums as a waste of time. Busywork, basically. I'll write them, then completely forget about them.
Took in class.
it was good, no problems
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how everything that was done in class is available for us even if we haven't gone over it.It gives students opportunities to look over the next course we'll be learning. I also like the forum idea where we can share our ideas to all the other students who are interested in Education.
I like the amount of enthusiasm that Professor Cawdery brought to his subject. It inspired me as a student to become the teacher that he has become.
That even though we not in class, you can reach the material online.
everything was turned in online, we didn't have to waste paper printing our work out and turning it in.
N/A
I liked how everything was online and all the lessons we learned in class were online. So just incase we needed to review something it would always be online so we can use it as reference.
I actually liked the online course because everything was laid out for the students. It gave a helpful list of what assignments/forums needed to be done.
the forums.
Mr. Cawdrey would constantly check up on us, helping us and reminding us of assignments to come. He also send out a lot of motivational videos through out the course, which really kept me active and wanting to learn.
timely announcement.
What I liked the most about the online forums and assignments was that we got to see other different peoples opinions for the forums part. I also enjoyed reading other people's papers and seeing what the put for their things.
I am able to work full-time while going to school. Plus, I like the due dates being during the weekend it allows me to work on it at my own pace and with as much accuracy as possible.
Everything was easy to do. For assignments, I could turn it in early and start the next.
I like that I can manage my own time and complete assignments as I want.
Very well set up. Expectations were very clear. Objectives and assignments were very clear. I really like the modules in this course. It made me feel more intergrated into a traditional course yet it was online.
Mostly everything about the course.
I liked that the course taught me to be responsible in keeping up with the work.
The course, the work, the deadlines and the grading were all very organized and laid out from the beginning.
i think this course needs to be revamped - i learned nothing.
I didn't have to drive and walk into a class room, in order for me to learn something new that I could new in my field of study.
That it was completely online, it was understandable and perfectly organized.
I liked all the visuals, online encouragements
I liked that everything was available at all times for me. I didn't have to wait to go on campus. It was a very good use of technology.
I liked it because it gave me more flexibility.
Although I haven't constantly turning in the homework on time, I have learned a lot just by reading other peoples response but over all everyone is kine online!
I loved it alot. He helped me understand alot.
The workload was evenly distributed. Most of the work are from in-class discussions and it really help make the work easier to understand and complete.
N/A
What I like most was the positive atmosphere that was present through out the entire room. Everyone was friendly and I made some new friends
I liked reading my classmates responses to different topics.
I liked that he had everything organized on laulima, but we also talked about it in class.
Connecting with other students that were not in my class.
Overall, the class was decent.
Took in class. Great teacher! Makes learning fun!!

19. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The welcoming environment. Everyone in the class were so friendly that we got along real quick. In my opinion if we didn't get close like we did it would've been hard to learn about classroom management.
The amount of confidence that he instilled into his students. It made me want to work harder.
For all the fun activities he used to explain some lessons.
Mr. Cawdery for being an awesome teacher.
Having the most awesomest teacher
Interesting and useful
The great professor!
How personable the teacher was! I also liked the student to student interaction.
how fun this class was.
having the most to teach me and having a very educated teacher.
doing forums and assignments...
how enthusiastic Professor Cawdery taught the course, and how he said that why we teach is because "So students can learn." Though I will mostly remember on how you taught us to change things up with our future students and get them motivated. Also on how everyday is a new day and how students learn differently.
"Nothing in this book will prepare you for your first day of teaching." I think this course is definately realistic.
N/A
The fundamental things that I learned from it.
The modules, and doing the reflection assignments.
how to establish authority.
Unique lessons and examples was given in every class discussion and different techniques and perspective of how to teach students. I will keep Dr. Wong's book it is the best book ever in the course.
I will remember the youtube clip for week one regarding a teacher's salary.
The organization.
i am glad it is over. the lesson examples we had to evaluate made me not want to teach. they were horrible experiences for the teachers and i felt sorry for them. i would be afraid to teach in nyc, chicago or la after taking this class.
using some of the assignments that we did in class and use it in my own class, for example write an informative letter to parents about the class.
The service learning i performed.
Being able to take all that I learned and manage a classroom effectively
It really helps set the tone for you. It will be things I will remember while I'm in the classroom. And I printed out almost everything for me to read later.
Mr. Cawderys awesome personality!
The energy our professor comes to start our day and all the group activities as well.
When i'm teaching and im using all his teachings on how be a great teacher.
remembering this was the first step to my career pathway.
The way it taught me how to be organized and engaging while teaching.
The teacher himself. He was very funny, energetic (hyper), and helpful. I will remember him ten years from now.
The book that I had to purchase and will be keeping by Mr. Wong "School Days".
"You guys are my favorite class. No, really"
Michael Cawdery's enthusiasm and motivation in the classroom. He is an amazing teacher!
the good class environment, my classmate, and my teacher!
Implementing strategies for developing routines.
Michael Cawdery!!!
tawdry looking like a cartoon
The lecture talking about your first day of school. That the first day sets the tone for the rest of the school year.

I feel that I made a good choice picking my first Education class :D
Classroom Management class and Michael Cawdery really taught the concepts and application of classroom management. The given opportunity we were given to be in a classroom really help us apply what we learn in the classroom.
i love this class.
Very helpful teacher and professional. I learned to many things from Mr. Cawdrey. I will most likely take all the information he has taught me and use it in my own experience and build off of this course.
Mr. Cawdery is very professional and not a boring instructor, he is full of enthusiasm and very understanding. I highly recommend Mr. Cawdery to other students.
I enjoyed the class very much and would highly recommend Professor Cawdery to future AAT students. I also enjoyed how when we came into class each time, the ice breakers were all different. Especially how a little before the middle of the semester, how we all squeezed into the middle of the room; we all remember how that threw you off. LoL Though it helped us all out for the better.

Great Course, Great Teacher. Thanks!!
great teacher.
It's great opportunity to be in the class and I really enjoy it. I just want to give thanks to the professor for helping me understand and work hard on my assignment. I will let other students know about him. Wish him the best of everything.
i assume mr.cawdery is a nice person. however, the he designed the class so that students were spending many hours on a lesson that offered litte insight, all for three little percentage points. this happened week after week, and then at the end he requires eight assignments to be turned in. i could not figure the grading percentage. four of finals were worth 12%, yet somehow all of them comprised 40% of the grade. It was unclear. he just seems disorganized and i felt stuck.
I enjoyed taking this class, I think some of the ideals and work we did gave me a good hands on experience of what a teacher does.
Michael Cawdery is an excellent teacher. He lets students know about him even though the course is online and develops a positive image of himself as an educator. He is a great instructor and I definitely enjoy his teaching material and strategies.
Great course!
I really enjoyed having this class and I just like how the professor know that we just need to be comfortable then we will be able to learn.
I love this class!!!!
Professor Cawdery was a very understanding and helpful teacher. He knew how to keep us all on task and had the class in discussion.
This class was very good. Michael is such an engaging teacher that listens to his student's questions and answers.
I hope my other education teachers will be like him, VERY HELPFUL!!!!!!
I wish I wasn't graduating this semester because I would take more of his classes!
Overall fun class! Made learning fun because he kept us engaged and always had fun activities! Love doing hand on projects and participation rather than just sitting around taking notes.
Just one thing to suggest. Not too many emails. It was over the top.

14. What did you like least about your online course experience?
It was great. The outline of the course was well thought out. I also liked that we meet up five times out of the semester to confirm details of out teacher portfolio.
Like any online course, because it was mostly online and that we would only meet about once a month, it gave us the opportunity to slack off.
Nothing at all I really enjoyed this course!
I am not sure if it was my internet service. but sometimes when I open up laulima at night, late night it takes a while to load or I couldn't even get into laulima.
I missed being in a classroom meeting my classmates. But other than that it was great!
none
The rationales were very difficult and felt lost with them at times. Other than that, nothing.
I would rather have a face to face class.
little personal contact
Meeting on Monday evenings was very difficult for myself and my family.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Online course provides flexibility for my schedule, which is the most helpful.
Being that it was online, we did get to move at our own pace I guess.
Mr. Cawdery was very understanding about my situation and helped me in every way to get things done!
It is convenient and samples or model of paper/projects were provided. The instructor/s were more than willing to answer questions or support the students, email comments to students on works for improvement.
It was easy to keep track of the assignments.
That we meet once a month to see how we was doing and it was organized.
This experience has increased my knowledge in the education field. It has also reinforced what I have learned through the years. It gave me a strong understanding of what will be expected of me as a future teacher and the knowledge that will be necessary for me to be succcessful as a teacher.
Made going to class fun, informative, and helpful.
It was something new that I got to experience.
use of multiple media (video, document downloads)
Mr. Cawdery is always open to helping students in need.

The portfolio that I have developed. It will always be at hand when interviews are done. I will remember the work that went into the portfolio and at least I dont have to do think or do much when doing my portfolio upgrade.
What I learned throughout the Semester that helped me look forward to what my future teaching career will possibly look like. The assignment that was needed to be completed that was relevant to my career. How the instructors were available when I needed them and their encouragement throughout. And my favorite - how they made things fun.
All the papers we had to put together to make the portfolio.
ALL THE HELP I GOT TO SUCCEED IN THIS COURSE
Although the course was online, the meeting of at least once a month with the instructors made the class more successful and less pressure. This course will be remembered because it is when all the evidenced of hardwork and learning was compiled.
Looking back at my assignments and my portfolio.
doing our portfolio, and the work we did in this class.
Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by the interesting projects that was required, the awesome and motivating instructors.
The teachers and their passion in the field and passion for teaching the students!
Being the first online class that I have taken.
Because Cawdery is a great mentor

Loved what I learned about making a rationale. At least I will know what is to be expected when doing my bachelor's.
Mr. Cawdery is cool! He believes in his students abilities. He is simple and calm. He would make the students bring out the best they can be in a less pressured manner. He practice inclusion, by making sure that there is no right or wrong answer but it is how students present their educated ideas. In his class, students would feel accepted and important. Thanks and good luck to you!
GREAT CLASS!
Terrific course.
I had a great, yet challenging semester. Overall, I enjoyed the course.

14. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The book needs to have larger font for easier reading and the chapters are not marked in the book which makes it difficult to find. Since it is listed with pearson's you should be able to review on pearson's site and I did not see that you could do that. I do not like pearson's though because a person with a slower operating system cannot get all functions, even though it says you can. I have a MAC, with 10.5. and cannot get it to etext ( I have a current lab with another class) History 151.Crozier
Nothing!
Excellent class, excellent leadership, course work was well defined and easy to navigate, questions were quickly answered and I felt supported the entire time.
I felt like sometimes I would miss out on some information because it is online.
Some of the other students were too critical with the forums.
N/A
There was definitely a lot of information to be learned and I wish I had been able to have a face-to- face class to help clarify different ideas and concepts. In addition, the syllabus that was provided in the beginning of the semester was different than the actual activities/assignments that needed to be turned in, so I became a little confused throughout the course.
I least liked the course when we have an assignment due every week. The final project wasn't really explained. It was confusing.
I liked every thing.
I dislike the idea of not having that face to face interaction.
There is nothing that I didn't like about this online course experience.
No complaints.
Not having that face to face interaction where the instructor could explain assignments a little better.
I would like to get to know my professor more, the way you would by seeing them in a face to face class a few times a week.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The way he organized lesson plan which made it a great way to prepare for final paper.
I love how Mr. Cawdery uses a variety of resources such as videos, photos, pdfs, and links on every module. It really helps the learning process.
Everything, the course was well planned out. Did not even feel like it was an online course!
Well defined deadlines and course requirements made it easy to find and complete all assignments.
I learned a lot of new information!
The final project
The way the instructor provides examples for the assignments and models each assignments expectations
Mr. Cawdery provided great resources to help me understand the content. There was definitely a lot to be learned, but he was able to provide videos, articles and other resources to highlight just the main points of each section. The modules were organized well and easy to follow (however, sometimes it did not match up with the syllabus). I also appreciated that the assignments were clearly defined and most had examples to help show the quality of work that was expected.
He was willing to help me when the videos weren't showing on my laptop. There were motivating and good videos that he required us to watch. Those videos were effective.
I liked doing the forums and doing the short papers.
I like the fact that i learned a lot of valuable information which i think will help me in the future.
I liked all the assignments and the readings and especially the final project because I learned a lot of things that a teacher needs to know.
I found the course material and assignments required much self-introspection and self-appraisal. For this I am grateful. The course helped me to see the landscape of working with exceptional students and to learn how I would respond and be of the most use in such an environment. I really think it was Mr. Cawdery's class that helped me handle my volunteer experience with the Special Olympics in April of 2012 with such success! Thank you Mr. C. Aloha from Mrs. S.
I thought that although it was a bit challenging, I had the opportunity to do the assignments and forums without having to worry too much about rushing to turn them in.
Mr. Cawdery went above and beyond the expectations for an online course, and sets the standard that all online instructors should strive for.
I could do the work at my pace and on when it was convenient for me.

My teacher and the strong emphasis on values for a teacher in the teaching profession.
the facts and evidence I had to research about
The teacher and his excellent approach on educating future teachers
the instructor and also the input of classmates
The way Michael Cawdery set up Laulima and kept it interesting because he posted many videos that were related to the topic.
What I learned from doing the final project
The content that was taught, through the way it was taught.
The new insights I learned into special education and how to help students with learning disabilities. The content I learned will definitely help me interact with my students both in and out of the classroom, and can be applied to others I encounter day-to-day as well. It has given me a better understanding and appreciation for the faculty who work with students with disabilities, as well as the students themselves.
The videos were so powerful. I'm willing to watch it again. Those videos were informative and helpful. One video that i really enjoyed watching was the Special Education Experiment with the teachers. It helped me see what students w/ disabilities are going through each day of their life.
All the things that I learned. I already work in the field and it gave me clarification and a better understanding why and how things in the education system are.
thinking about the stores that we read and how they impacted my life and my thoughts.
The disscussions that we have and the readings that I read in this class.
How positive it made me feel in my own abilities to affect change in my life and lives of others.
taking what I have learned in this course and applying it into the classroom that I will be teaching in. There were a lot of important information and facts that I learned in this course that everyone should be aware of. I will be sure to be one of those voices that will speak for those who may have a hard time in this area.
The efficiency of it.
Just remembering which of my ED classes I took online and which I took on campus. Also by the book I read "Reclaiming Youth at Risk."

Excellent class
Awesome teacher, I would definitely take his class again AND recommend him to any of my friends who are pursuing education majors.
Great Class
I will use this course as a reference for sure in the future.
I would reccomend this course. I really enjoyed it and would highly reccomend it.
I really enjoyed taking this class.
Keep on - Keeping on Mr. Cawdery! Future teachers of Hawaii need you!
Mr. Cawdery is an AWESOME instructor. He makes sure that you understand the assignments and he's always been very supportive and encouraging towards all students. Thanks Mr. Cawdery!

14. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked that we got to actually get the feel of being in a classroom setting and getting familiar with the idea of becoming a teacher. By taking this class, it really opened my eyes to new and possibly challenging experiences, but this class made me confident and comfortable with knowing what kind of things I will expect.
The content
I really liked the service learning areas in the class. I also enjoyed the movies and videos selected by Professor Cawdery
I liked how Cawdery made the online experience fun and motivating. I feel like I learned the most from this class this semester.
I liked the video clips that was used in this class. I liked having the powerpoints with the narration because it made the lesson like I was actually in a face-to-face class. I liked the videos in each module. Having lots of the visual aids was very effective to me. I also enjoyed reading the forums; it allowed me to get brilliant thoughts and ideas from my fellow classmates.
Very Understanding.
Looking at the different learning situations and perspectives with respect to culture and the students at different cognitive levels.
I liked everything but what I found differently from other courses that I took is I enjoyed the Power Points that he did for each module explaing what that module was about.
Online course was easy to navigate, assignments were clear and lots of discription was given so that there was no confusion about assignments.
I liked all the videos. I never realized how much I could learn from regular movies.
Information was presented in a way that kept the course interesting. Use of various forms of media to present information and assignments also helped to keep the course interesting. The professor was quick to respond to emails and was very help when we needed help.
First, what was expected from the course was emailed and outlined before the first day of class. Second,Michael Cawdery was always ready to help in anyway and always answered my emails. Got back to me online with answers so I could get my assignments done on time. Last, I was able to take in the information of this course with the help of the instructor and the input of the rest of the students online with the forums and reaction section.
THE PROJECTS
This is the first online course I have taken and I learned the fundamentals of classroom management.
I enjoyed the whole course.
I liked that Mr. Cawdery presented the course material in a fun and creative way that made comprehension easy to grasp. I also
I liked how he was involved with our home work, assignments, and questions.
During class time how we worked on the homework before it was due.
If you wanted to work ahead he had the assignments posted early. I would just look at it but not turn in assignments early.
When taking his class in person, the interaction between him and us as classmates were excellent and made it much easier to learn.
I liked everything about this course. When you first look at the assignments you feel overwhelmed, but as you do each assignment you understand it's importance and relevance to your career. For example the case study final the whole semester I was thinking man when am I gonna fit 10 hours in my schedule, but when doing the 10 hours I realized that those 10 hours make a big difference in your life choice to become a teacher. In the beginning it was a little rough for me to actually think as if I were a teacher, but after I got comfortable my mind just ran with the other assignments. I could think of what I wanted my class to do, what I wanted to look like, it was great to think of all of this ahead of time.
Michael Cawdery made every part of class worth attending. I would say though that the best parts of class is when the entire class and the teacher are able to engage in discussions, you find everyone listening and becoming more and more interested in the lessons.
i like the case study , it made me realize teaching is more than standing in front of class and talking..
Learned so much in a fun and interactive way! Great Teacher and great fellow classmates!
I liked the fact that Mr. Cawdery was very professional and helpful during the entire semester. I love how he sets up Laulima for us. Everything is thorough and the fact that we do homework in class is super awesome. I give him super credit for it.
I learned to apply principles from this course to my Sunday school class. I teach 7-9 grades. It has helped me to be that teacher and I am very happy about this it has built my courage that teaching God's word means a lot to me. I am greatly and thankful for all of my Educationl classes that I have take it has brought a bright meaning to me and it has brought more importantly to my sunday school class, at the Congregational Church of Wahiawa.
The instructor is real. What he brings to the table is real, and he presents materials, subjects and topics in a way that is meaningful to me. I never once doubted that teaching was what I wanted when I was learning from this teacher.
I like the service learning the best.
Michael presents the material in an interesting manner and he was able to contextualize the information so that what he taught allowed me to be able to understand and confident that I may use it in the future.
Mr. Cawdery taught us the way.
Mr. Cawdery is by far the best teacher that I have had the pleasure of learning from since I have started college. He really is an insipiration to all of us, we all enjoy going to class because every day we learn new things in a new way. He is truly one of a kind, makes all of us feel important, smart, and worthy. He inspires us to all be teachers and to shoot for the starts and achieve our goals and dreams. He is just awesome and I hope to have him again.
I liked how our class was really chill and fun. It felt like we were hanging out, but at the end of the semester I realized that I learned so much. Service learning was amazing! I had some trouble contacting the school and I was a bit late, but the experience was worth it. The kids were wonderful and it taught me so much!
Super hands on class using different teaching methods involving technologies and resources
I liked how he organized the assignments and gave us a good amount of time to turn in the work as well.
What I like in this class was everyone was nice. Mr. Cawdery was down to earth and made us feel comfortable. One of the things i like was doing our lessons plan. It was my first one i did. It can be time consuming and somewhat a lot of work. Everyone got to present it and we got to see other peoples ideas how they would teach the class. I like that because we got to barrow there ideas and maybe use it one day. The other thing i like was when he made us do an activity of doing procedures and routines because people was lost and didnt know what was going on and the direction wasn't clear enough. Which was the whole point of it. People just assume we should know the rules and procedures and expect us to do it.
i really enjoyed the case study. you really do see all the lessons you learned in class being used by actual teachers in their classes. its really amazing to learn the lessons, see them in use, and actually get to experience it hands on.
i enjoyed the instructors enthusiasm very much. He also seemed very knowledgeable of things outside of his subject making it easy to relate to him.
Honestly everything about this course is great.
This was an extremely interactive and engaging class. I loved the layout of this classroom so much that when I become a teacher, I want to use the same layout. I had fun and learned more than I had anticipated in this class. This class inspired me to become a teacher who desires to impact lives,communities, and the education system.
I liked the class/group participation the best. It gave us the opportunity to not only work together but to also to get to know one another.
i love the way he interacted with students in class when they had a question regrading work etc. furthermore i enjoyed how he made everyone feel comfortable talking in class. he had class enjoyable to go too
I learned a lot from my service learning and being in the classroom. I liked the atmosphere of the course and fellow classmates in this program.
I the interactions, group activities, the open communications.
everything
-Useful information for our portfolio
The people in the class are amazing, amazing people! I'm so excited that we'll be working side by side one day as professionals.
All the learning was meaninful and fun.
the in class lectors
I like that the class was very tight and open to all ideas from other students. It is an important class for any student becoming a teacher to take.
I liked that we were able to do the service learning.
Modules
the small and simple assignments.
Mr. Cawdery's enthusiasm for teaching.
The humor he added to it
I like every aspect of this class but if I had to choose one I would have to say that I really enjoyed the case study the most why?! well it is because I had the opportunity to see classroom management first hand and was able to assist the teacher with assignments, lead in a small lesson, work one on one with some students, see their joy of accomplishments on their faced, able to get the bond with the students that I worked with, see first hand how much they respect everyone and everything around them. this experience by far was the best I ever had... Thank you for that:)!!
Creating classroom design and lesson plan.I especially found that lesson plan is very important and it holds you accountable in making sure that you present your lesson with clear and direct instructions.
That this was an online class.
Like the open forum - great to see other students input/perspective
I really enjoyed the video tutorials and movie links that were related to the subject at hand.
reading the younger classmates perspectives of the class and their comments.
15. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing
I disliked having to go to so many links although it was very helpful.
Service learning
N/A
I do not like the forum posts. I didn't feel like I got much out of doing them.
I didn't like that I could only take it online. I liked the assignments and it would've been better to take it in person if there were more time slots for it.
The only part that I liked least regarding the course was the time it took to get graded assignments back. It was difficult to gauge were I stood in terms of grades in the class.
I honestly think I took on more than I could do this semester. I took on two online courses this semester. I dont think it would have been such a struggle for me if I only did one online education course at a time.
NOTHING!
Receiving my grade late.
None
There wasn't any part of the course that I disliked. Everything was good.
I don't think there was a time were I did not like the class. He was well organized and explained the instructions clearly.
That it is only once a week.
no comments
None, he was great!
Not having a posted grade.
I will have to admit, I really didn't like having to present on assignment in particular but I'm glad that I did because it allowed me to take risks and it only strengthen my abilities and skills into becoming a professional educator.
N/A
I disliked the HUGE projects from time to time. He did warn us ahead of time, but the time it takes to complete the work stressed me out every now and then.
There was none. I enjoy his teaching and he makes it fun and laugable.
That I was unable to keep up. Iʻm playing catch up right now and it sucks. But heʻs been flexible and supportive since day one, and thatʻs the most I could ever ask for.
I didn't like all the forums and assignments.
I liked everything.
At first I didn't care for the group work but later as the class got to know each other better through group work we all felt alot more comfortable then I began to enjoy group work.
There was nothing that i didnt enjoy about the class.
I don't like doing forums.
there isnt anything in this class i didnt like. everything was enjoyable. Cawdery really is a great teacher. he's like my yoda.
I loved the related "life stories." I also love Alan Wong, and his philosophies. Most of all, I enjoyed the dynamics of our classroom. Everyone was open and interested in the subject matter. It made learning magically occur day after day....
Since Mr. Cawdery made the subject and the information very interesting and pertinent, time always seem to pass to quickly! Not enough time in class, it could be longer.
none
The amount of assignments was a bit overwhelming and need to pace yourself
forum, to many to ansewer in which, I got confuse or truthfully tired going down the listing of classmates posting. although, it is a good thing and I understand this is for everyone to interact with each other.
forums :/
-Forums: There were a lot of forum work to do.
Possibly a few too many assignments, forums, classwork to go on top of our Service Learning case study.
A lot of weekly work did not seem to be needed to learn the material.
the assignments i felt like they all weren't needed
Most of the work was online so it made it difficult for myself to work at home.
I feel like all the difficult homework happened at one time.
Modules were too long
none.
The amount of writing required....This should be a writing intensive course.
Him not grading everything in a timely manor :(
Honestly I liked every aspect of this course, although I am not going for my associates degree in teaching I am know considering on changing my major thanks to this class... I really enjoyed and learned a lot form his class that helps me with every day management..
None
n/a
None of the assignments completed and turned in were returned to me and other students in a timely manner. I have not gotten any of my assignments graded/returned for over 4 weeks. This is simply unacceptable. How will we know if our grade or assignments need improvement if nothing is graded in a timely manner? He teaches classroom management, but I think he needs to learn time management!
Although I enjoyed the class just seem to be a lot of writing. Manageable but more than expected - to some degree felt like a writing intensive course.
To many places to go for assignments, not really sure when a couple of them were due, and took to long get grades back for assignments.
none.
While the course was great their were some periods we had to come up with our own ideas on how to get started

I was able to gain a lot of knowledge in Cawdery's class and I looked forward to coming and learning something new every class. Taking Cawdery's class has strengthen my desire to even more become a professional educator. I am glad to have the opportunity to take Michael Cawdery's class. I have to say that if there were more educators like Cawdery, there would probably be more students who would have an interest and desire to become a professional educator.
i feel Mr. cawdery is a good teacher, helps alot and im glad he gave his cell out that made my life easier.
Great course, great teacher, lots of knowledge gained!
Good job Mr. C! Keep it up, i'd take your class again if i could.

I want to be a teacher like yoouououououou Mr. [[:
Awesome teacher, awesome just amazing!
Awesome instructor!
GREAT PROFESSOR!
Mr. Cawdery is AWESOME!!! He is such a down to earth teacher and open to our ideas and opinions. He showed us he cared for us as students and he also showed us hes just like everyone else. He got facebooks, he does homework, and surf.
awesome teacher! loved this course.
Appreciate Mr. Cawdery passion to teach us how to be an EFFECTIVE educator, and also his ability to be very encouraging to his students. Taking his course is very helpful!
I learned alot and this course was the most challenging and rewarding class. Have taken
I just love the ED-instructor's they are understanding, compassionate, and not afraid to "Load the homework" but it's all good.... I love the fact that they are willing to go to the "Extreme" for me as a student to succeed! is what this course have been an example of. Thanks, Mike for caring.... =o) NT-Mel
loved this class!!
Great class, great instructor. Keep up the great job.
Thank you so much! This was an incredible course. You showed us the value in being well prepared as a professional. There was so much solid information and taught in a way that I am not likely to forget any time soon.
Mr Cawdery is awesome!!!!
would recommend to anyone
Great teacher, great class, always great classmates, and very good course to take.
Good class, work needs to be returned more promptly though.
none.
great teacher!
Michael Cawdery is the kind of teacher that is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that you understand the assignment. he answers your questions in a timely manner, always ensuring you that your questions are not stupid ones.He also checks up on you to see if you need further help or understanding on assignments. His love for what he does shines through in the way he works with you and how his assignments are laid out.If I do continue to take educational classes I would like to take more of his classes if they are offered. I would HIGHLY recommend him to others who are looking to be a teacher and even someone who is trying to get a feel for their field like me...loved this class!!!
One thing that I appreciated Professor Cawdery doing throughout the semester, is encouraging his student each week, and how he keeps us informed with AAT events. Thank you Professor Cawdery.

I love how Mr. Cawdery takes the time to find additional support in helping his students learn and succeed!
I liked the videos that were in the modules. They helped me get a better understanding of the subjects. I really enjoyed the research articles that were presented of some of the different programs that are available in teaching. I will definitely be using them in the future.
I enjoyed the organization of the course, especially by using the modules.
The structure of how the assignments were given and the work content.
I like the set up of modules, it was very easy to follow.
Learning about students in a inclusion class.
I really was shocked with a lot of the information that was given to me for this course. I really enjoyed learning all of these new aspects about what goes on within the classrooms and how it is run with the of the students together. All of the information on special education and the disabilities that they have and how they may or may not be able to function was just awesome. I love this course so far.....
15. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None at the moment!
I can't really think of anything that I didn't like.
nothing.

I recommend Mr. Cawdery to anyone. I have known Mr. Cawdery from the time he taught his first ED class at LCC Waianae. Indeed he is a new professor; however, he is on his way to becoming a great professor.
I really enjoyed this course. It was very interesting and I gained a lot of new knowledge that I will be using in the future.
Thanks for another wonderful semester! I hope the professors at UH are as nice as the ones here in the AAT program. I'll keep my fingers crossed :)
Thank you!
:)
Mr. Cawdrey is a great teacher and always willing to help out his students.
None.... But I would suggest this course to all. It was a really eye opener for me and I love it so far.

That I learned so much new & valuable information from this course. All classes were fun & exciting which made me want to come to class :) I felt that this course will really help me succeed in the real world and a big part of it was thanks to Professor Cawdery's teaching styles & outstanding enthusiasm! He is very passionate about his subject & career.
Mr. Michael Cawdery is awesome and he is a good teacher that can be model to everybody.
He is a great professor. He can be a little hard on you at times, but it's for your own good. He also has a good sense of humor, so class is never boring.
My overall evaluation of Michael Cawdery is I think that he is an okay teacher. But I wish that he would explain the assignments a little more. Sometimes I do not understand what he is teaching or wants us to learn. I am learning that it is taking a lot of time and commitment to be a teacher. I never knew that it required so much paper work, organization, and other things.
Very helpful and enthusiastic. He really knows what heʻs teaching and makes it easy for everyone to understand.
I wish that there were more motivated teachers like Mr. Cawdery. He is well prepared, and encourages his students a lot. He is also really understanding. Mr.s Cawdery is also always willing to help, with anything. He also gives his students to resubmit projects if they wanted too.
He was an excellent teacher. I recommended his class to some friends that are considering joining the AAT program.
He is a really good teacher and makes class enjoyable.
Michael Cawdery is a well liked, positive, instructor that is more than will to help if you ask for help. His goal is to make better teachers and make the profession better for teachers.
a great teacher.
he is knowledgable, and enthuastic about his work. He makes you fell comfortable and never make you feel less worthy or embarrased. He is a leader and born to teach.
great teacher and he always cared about his students. If you needed any type of help with any assignments or forums, he was always there to help you out.
Michael Cawdery is both professional and personable. I felt that I could come to him at anytime for direction and assistance with my educational questions.
Well I thought that he was a little condescending when I didn't quite understand instructions. It was confusing as to what you were looking for until I looked at the other student's lesson plan. Thank you for belittling me. At least we weren't in front of a huge class.
He is an awesome professor that knows his material and knows how to share his knowledge with future generations of teachers well.
Excellent!
he teaches what is related to the course; however, the work can be vague.
even though i didnt get a chance to meet you in person this semester, i still had a good tim ewith your class. youre an effective educator and you seem reall down to earth.
Thumbs up! I enjoyed this class.
This was my second ed class and I found it very interesting and informative. When I had trouble submitting assignments, Mr. Cawdery was very understanding and helpful. He communicated very quickly when I had questions or problems. He was always positive and encouraging.
He was a very knowledgabe teacher.
He was a great teacher and willing to answer all my questions. I was very comfortable emailing him about any concerns. I would have liked for our assignments to be graded a lot faster.
He is a great teacher. He knows alot about the subject which makes great room for all the help he provided and knowledge he gave when A situation arrived.
He is a teacher who is very kind, helpful, and wants his students to succeed not only in his class, but in their careers as future teachers.
very good. I am very happy I took his course and look forward to taking more courses from him.
He is a great teacher and he shows that he cares about his students. He is always willing to help a student, even after his office hours are over.
Awesome! I am so happy I took his class. I've learned so many concepts of classroom management that I will be able to use in the future. Was a very beneficial class, his set up was great.
Very helpfull and gave excellent feed back.
an excellent educator and made class fun...even for online!
overall, he is a good instructor.
My opinion is Michael Cawdery really put a lot of thought into this course. He has definitely put thought into this course. I appreciate all the knowledge I've gained throughout this semester.
I think that assignments shouldve been graded faster so that students know where they stand throughout the semester.
Great teacher!
Excellent
He's a great teacher who really knows his material.
very educated about the subject and is well organized and on top of his students to do their work

15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The modules that kept everything organized so that we knew exactly were to find the materials that we needed :)
Sharing and Knowing others experiences.
Everything was pretty well organized, so I didn't have much of a hard time trying to find things.
I did not have to take this course online. It was helpful that he put everything online (forums, tutorial videos, and all the assignments) to keep track. The only thing that was hard was that it took a lot of time to do all the assignments.
I liked being able to turn assignments in through the laulima system
I liked how if you need to go back for reference about a certain topic it was all online. Not like sometimes when having lecture class you need to take good notes because some of the "important" things won't be posted on laulime or whatever the teacher uses to post class things.
The interactivity.
I was in class Mon and Wed. it was great to have full access to the instructor online and in the class
The people
I really like that we were able to look back at the modules if we were having trouble with anything.
I like the convenience of online courses.
I liked the fact that I didn't have to drive to class. I actually have had a busy semester, so it helped that my course was online.
The work was outlined in the weekly modules extremely well so it made understanding what to do easier.
I got to meet new fellow students and reading forums posted online.
What I like most would be the forums section because we were able to communicate with other classmates and get opinions back from others.
it was easy to follow, everything was straight forward
That I could do my work whenever I had the time to.
I enjoyed the modules. They were very interesting and diverse. The material was very practical. I learned a lot and was encouraged in my quest to become a teacher. Mr. Cawdery's communications were always positive.
The forums
The opportunity to do assignments on my own time.
It was conviniant to my schedule.
It was easy to follow and very detailed.
I liked how we used alot of sharing ideas about certain topics and discussed many things with one another. This helped with learning new things with out actually going through the situation. Now, when I am in a certain situation, i have some what of an idea how to handle it.
Because there is no set time that I needed to be online, it gave me a great amount of flexibility.
I enjoyed the activities that were assigned and it all made me more assured that teaching is want I want to do in the future.
Everything was clear and organized.
I got feedback on my assginments right away.
being able to fulfill assignments on my time and Cawdery gave sufficient time for weekly assignments.
I can have more free time to learn.
It was organized and easy to follow. There were a lot of resources avaibable like handouts, videos, samples, etc.
I liked that Michael Cawdery gave examples for a few projects. The examples really helped me to do well on the assignments.
I like how it included forums so that ideas can be shared amongst the class.
It was vey organized
The convenience.
I always knew that if I needed help there will be much help made available.
how we got to comment on others work as well as them give us feed back so we know how to better our work
16. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I felt that if you were taking the course face to face, then the online forums were a little repetitive because we speak about it in class, then re-post what we talked about. I feel that the forums tool should have been just an optional supplement for those who were in the face to face course. I just personally felt that as a face to face student we had double the work of those who were taking the course fully online.
some of the forum because i dnt really do well in the forum area.
N/A
That it was kind of hard to read and understand the forums.
I didnʻt like doing forums and modules because I feel like we have completed the tasks from them in class.
I didn't like how small the MG had to be in order for your work to go through to be submitted. I think that laulima should up the size of the MG so students aren't limited to a small amount.
Laulima sometimes doesn't save the work.
n/a
All the informashion was not so clear and the due dates
N/A
I did not like the delay in returned assignments. I like to stay in the know of how I'm doing with assignments. I'm pretty sure the delay in returned assignments is because of the large class size, so I kind of took this in stride.
It would have probably been easier if I would have actually been in a class instead of online because I would have been able to ask questions of you.
There wasn't anything I didn't like about the course.
Everything was great!
The least thing I liked would be the amount an detailed of work we had to do in so little time.
there were some parts that were a little confusing, and the videos didnt work for me in the beginning.
I would have liked to take the course face-to-face. Sometimes the modules just blended one into another. I forgot which one I was doing. The quicktime player did not work for my computer, so some videos I had to go to the school library to view.
Sometimes not knowing when something is due
Sometimes the forum and module layout got a little confusing and hard to remember which one we were in without the teacher reminding us. I also seemed to have not seen part of some assignments until after it was turned in.
There was alot of work due in the same week.
I did not like haveing this class online. the material gained and experiance was great, but I would rather be in class verses online. Mr.Cawdery seemed like he would have been an amazing teacher in person.
Being a distance education course, although we can somewhat interact with classmates, it is not the same as being in a face to face classroom setting.
I liked everything!
Having to keep up with everything. also sometimes taking a class like this would be better in class because it is more engaging, but that was my choice so its nothing against Mr. Cawdery
i found it difficult that all the assignments were not in the same place and there was no timeline for each module.
no
I didn't have my work graded right away so I wasn't sure how I was progressing throughout the semester.
Grading shouldve been more consistent so that I knew how I was doing.
The lack of human interaction, but that's what you get for taking an online course.
I miss the in class communication/ interaction.
how you think that you did the work to your best but to the teacher it wasnt
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I've become very enlightened on the subject of classroom management & I would recommend this course & professor to all aspiring teachers :)!
very excellent, i learned and like it much.
I really enjoyed this class. I learned quite a lot about classroom management, and plan to use this experience to help me in the future.
that he was an okay teacher. I liked the way he taught the class.
Very good and helpful for students who will be future teachers.
I WOULD TAKE IT AGAIN IF MR.CAWDERY WAS TEACHING IT!! EXCELLENT TEACHER
It was awesome.
very positive. I learned a lot.
ok but a lot of work
very well taught and I would recommened this class because I learned a lot of things that I didn't have any knowledge of.
Overall, I enjoyed the course. There is a great deal of work, but Michael Cawdery worked with us and helped each of us stay the course.
It was ok, not great though. Lots could be done to improve the course!
It is an awesome class and I would recommend it to any student interested in becoming a teacher.
Excellent!
If others would like to manage a classroom professionally then this course is needed!
it was a great class, and all the iformation that ive learned is really useful, i use them with the children that i watch now.
I loved it.
very positive and practical. I learned a lot.
Great information
It was a good class, I learned a lot and doing my service learning definitely put things into perspective.
It's a very helpful class for teachers.
Great class! I learned a lot. Very informative.
I overall enjoyed this class. Due to not being able to go to in class classes this semester I think I really missed out on some material. I would have enjoyed this class ... in person verses online.
This course was filled with assignments and forums that are really going to be beneficial to students as they keep on working toward becoming teachers. None of the assignments were too easy. They made you think and apply skills and knowledge that was learned. This class also makes you think about how you want your future classroom to be. For assignments, we needed to make a list of class rules, procedures, punishments, and rewards, and we also has to organize a classroom...all things that will definitely be beneficial in the future.
very good and I would highly recommend this teacher to other students.
AWESOME!
Very helpfull and a good start to what I wanted to do.
very good! will be recommended by me to everyone who needs this course.
good.
It was a great course!
Great course!! I'd recommend it to anyone.
It was a very informative course that involved real life situations. It made me think about if teaching really is for me or not. I think that the service learning portion couldve been stated a little clearer in the beginning of the semester. Overall a good course but I wish I wouldve took it on campus because I think I couldve got a lot more out of it.
pretty good. I've learned a few things from taking this course and from personal knowledge to help me better succeed in the classroom.
Very good course due to the instructors abilities.
i enjoyed it

Thank you Mr. Michael Cawdery,till next time
Mr. Cawdery, you are awesome! :]
Keep up the good work.
I really enjoyed this class because I learned so many different things about being a teacher. The service learning also helped me because I got to experience what it feels like to be in a classroom.
Awesome class. Keep up the great work.
Great online class!
i enjoyed this class, everyone seemed down to earth and willing to help each other out.
Mr. Cawdery is a generous grader. I also appreciate the diverse videos and articles we were exposed to in the modules. They were always interesting. The assignments were relevant. I thoroughly enjoyed the texts. We were constantly kept updated about events in the AAT program. I felt like we were part of a team and really encouraged in our goals.

9. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I liked how all we had to do was projects in this course, and felt those made us learn more than a test or text book would have.
The film festival presentation
i like the identity map and the film festival...
the issues
na
Learning how to implement multicultural lessons into a classroom environment. Also, the material and activities are easily relateable and fun. It brought on a sense of self knowledge and pride of my heritage.
Gaining insight of different types of children and learn about accommodations and ways to include children in our class. We learned a lot of the consequences.
Learning about educationʻs history and linking it to how it is used today.
when we constructed our identity maps becuase it showed how different we each are. it also shows the how our culture impacts everyday life.
Being able to socialize and see who everyone was and their identity really helped shape this class. I learned a lot just by getting to know most of the people in class. The videos also played a valuable role in this class because we were able to see what multicultural issues really take place in this world and the classrooms.
Being able to identify global multi-cultural issues within the media (ex. articles, movies, etc.), the ability to truly express ourselves and who we really are; it was our own impact throughout the course. Everyone got along in which discussions were key moments where we all got to know more about our classmates.
the assignments really helped to solidify the topics being taught!
The group discussions were fun. I enjoyed learning about different high schools and how they did in a specific area and how we compared it to one another. I also like using the clickers to do a survey in class.
I really enjoyed the assignments like the identity map and the film festival.
How to effectively teach and interest all students.
The Cultural Identity Map because it provided us with the opportunity to get to know our classmates.
Identity map, forced me to think about myself in a variety of ways.
sharing and involving to the multicultural issue of the ground.
the group projects helped me learn how to collaborate and work together with other members
10. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
I'll remember how it taught me to be open to differences in other people.
What were my reviews on the film festival
the awesome teacher!
na
The fun activities that had us evaluate our family history and heritage.
The appalling consequences make this class unforgettable
The friendships I made with my classmates.
from the projects we did becuase it was fun and it was different and fun from the other projects i had to do in other classes.
When I become a teacher, I will definitely take the things I learned in this course and use it in my classroom. This will allow me to be able to work with different types of children and it can only make me a stronger educator:)
Applying what I learned into my future career as an English teacher at a secondary education level. Whenever I encounter issues within a classroom in regards to multi-cultural demographics, I will know how to prevent problems or stop them.
our video projects. the course as a whole was very helpful!
How Professor Cawdery incoporated real life situations to make it uderstandable to me about the topic at hand.
The film festival and multi cultural issues that i learned about the most in this class really will stick with me when i become a teacher.
the concepts taught in class and how the instructor is very friendly and helpful to students.
Professor Cawdery and the Film Festival.
The quality of classmates I shared the experience with and the effort I had to put into identifying myself as a member of a culture.
sharing and relating every movie into my own life.

19. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
a very good teacher, and fun to talk to.
he is very concerned about his students, and wants them to be successful. Mr. Cawdery teaches about current events with some of his personal refections, which gives the lesson a clear identity.
a great instructor with passion and knowledge...
awesome
he is a very enthusiastic teacher and makes learning enjoyable
He is very passionate about this course. He genuinely cares about his students and wants to see us succeed.
Fantastic Job, Just keep doing what you're doing. I enjoyed this course.
good teacher. confusing when trying to explain assignments.
Michael is a very enthusiastic teacher who makes his classes really fun and enjoyable. I enjoy his class because he doesnt spend the entire period lecturing like what other teachers do. He seems to know the content very well and I am able to understand them clearly.
Awesome class managed by an Awesome teacber, what more can I say...
great
a nice Professor who is willing to help. He made class fun and understandable.
very easy going and laid back
a very enthusiastic professor who cares a lot about his students. i highly reccommend taking him for any education class.
He's a great teacher!

i enjoyed the class even though i had trouble with the assignments.
I enjoy taking Michael courses! He knows his content very well and makes learning much more interesting!

8. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
learning about the different types of problems people around the world encounter
This class taught me so much about inclusion that I will use in my career
I found the student presentations on how to accommodate various students informative and useful for future reference. The guest speakers were great as well.
The guest speakers were an excellent idea for this course, it really helped bridge the gap between what we are learning in class and real-life scenarios. I really enjoyed the freedom we were given with our final project. Because our presentations didn't have too many restrictions I was able to really produce a product that I was proud of and interested in. Professor Cawdery in general was an excellent teacher. I learned and enjoyed this course very much and would refer it to anyone working toward an education degree.
The lessons were inspiring
I loved how we had guest speakers and did that last project on different disabilities. Very helpful!
Everything is worthwhile and amazing in this class. I want to thank the professor for knowledgeable lessons and amazing presentation. I really enjoy everything in this course and I will recommended to others.
The guest speakers
I'm doing this for multicultural education since i mixed up the evaluations. but i thought multi cultrual ed was important, we learned the importance of culture and identity and how much impact it has on a student. Also, we learned about contemporary issues in schools that we may run into in the future.
Being able to adaptable dealing with special Ed.
This was my first education class with the AAT program and it has cemented my decision in becoming a teacher. This class has helped me gain an insight as to what's in store for the future with the program, my career choice and life itself. Professor Cawdery is awesome and I look forward to attending another class of his.
Learning about the educational system and SPED side of education not covered much in other education courses.
9. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
none
Nothing. I loved this class.
To be honest, I felt that the books that the course required were not as helpful to me as I had hoped. I felt detached from the first book because I could not get into it. I would have benefited more from books written directly about at risk students that reads like a regular book then have the concepts stated in At Risk Youth applied to the character that I am reading about. Reading a full story about a person makes me feel more connected to the person and drives me to learn what I have to. It requires more work but the there is greater motivation.
none.
n/a
none.
The textbook with definitions
Nothing was useless in multi cultural ed, however we should refer to the definition worksheet more so the words get stuck in our head
None.
The only thing I can think of that was least valuable with the course was my lack of participation with my studies. I didn't do so well this semester academically and my participation and motivations lacked so I feel I could have done more and learned more than I did.
10. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The values and concepts its given me to use in my career.
The presentations that were given throughout.
...the professor! I will never forget his presence in the classroom, he is a very genuine and passionate human being.
It opened my eyes to work with children with special needs.
teaching in a special education class with a Masters in Special Education. (:
Yes, I will always remember.
The guest speakers and the information that they shared with us.
the relationships built and of course the appalling issues in our schools and communities today.
Case Study.
It was enjoyable to attend. Lovely hour, 15 minutes. Me peers were people I'd love to see in the future in our careers, hopefully one day work with. Professor was funny and made class fun. And I loved the view from the balcony outside the classroom.
Being the first introduction to learning about SPED students and procedures, services, and accommodations when working with special populations.

21. Other comments:
I really wish that the final assignment was broken down and laced throughout the semester. I attended this class hoping to learn about how to include various students in my classroom. Although I learned a lot but I was disappointed to find that when presentation time came around, no one had a finished product to show or share with the class. If the assignment was assigned at the beginning and done throughout the semester, not only would students have had complete work but also have more information for me to take from. The assignment requires a lot of work that cannot be fully summarized in a ten minute time slot. Having the assignment done and posted in a place where I can access it, like a forum, would have really helped me to get the information that I could use later on. I also feel that more in class activities and group discussions would have aided my understanding of concepts too. The guest speakers helped and the lectures helped to a degree but I wished that I was given more to do than just listen.
Very interesting class! I'm super glad I took this class!
Keep up the good work!!! It is a great opportunity to have Mr. Cawdery for this course.
Michael Cawdery is a great teacher and delivers importnat information in a clear and easy to understand way.
Goodjob again Professor Cawdery. I have no more classes with you anymore :( however your lessons and classes are meaningful and will never be forgotten. Keep the goodwork up and stay cool!.
None.
I think I said enough.
I enjoyed this course because of the structure of the course and how it opened my eyes to special populations in education. Before this class I never thought about learning about or working with SPED or at risk youth. Now I am very interested in gaining more knowledge and experience in this particular area.

9. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
How important good classroom management is to run a classroom. And to never throw out the book by Harry Wong. Great book to always to back to as reference.
about how much my words and actions reflect on my student's thinking and actions. Also, the importance of an organized classroom with procedures in place so that the classroom environment is conducive to learning in a fun and creative way and not much time wasted on correcting children for misbehaving. All students deserve to have a teacher that expects her students to do well and reach for the "stars". That's the kind of teacher I want to be and the positive message I want to give me students.
Thinking about why I wanted to be a Teacher in the first place. I gained a lot of information and found out that being a teacher is a very respectable job I would just have to be more dedicated and organized.
From 10 years from now i will remember this course by you the teacher(Michael Cawdery) was a good teacher that was always there to help me when ever i have hard time looking for a website.
