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

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

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

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

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

It took some time for the work to be graded and released.
I didn't like having to do the case study.

Everything was actually pretty valuable about this course. It was definitely filled with a lot of information and experience.
Doing the forums every week wasn't helpful at all.

Not really sure. Hard to judge someone when it's a online class
great teacher, i heard many great things about him and now experienced why
Awesome instructor. Highly recommended.
Michael Cawdery is a great professor who knows his material that he teaches. He is very easy going and an easy person to have a conversation with about any material that you don't understand.

Awesome!
Great professor and great teaching.
He's very helpful and determined to help every one out.
Great teacher
Michael Cawdery seems like a really good teacher. I never really asked for help in the class but he seems really helpful. He would send out a lot of reminders in emails. He also seems like he cares a lot about our education and how we do in his class.
Micheal is an awesome teacher, he has a lot of knowledge about becoming a teacher. He responded very quickly to my emails and it was very much appreciated.
22. Other comments:
I enjoyed taking your course and youʻve helped me understand and learn more about teaching.
N/a
Some of the assignments were fairly intense, but they were good. My weekly time investment in this course was around 15-20 hours a week - I was never sure if it was because I was just moving slowly, or if I was being to exacting. However, I have done quite well so far and I have learned a lot, so I am satisfied.
I loved this class
The class definitely got me to experience the duties of being a teacher and how to go through the process of lesson planning. I liked that it gave me a real idea of what is expected.

sometimes its hard for me to ask the assignment problems.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked that i could do the work at my pace and email the professors at anytime & know that i would get a quick response back.
I could do the assignments my own paste, and Mr. Cawdery made the modules easy to understand without him being there physically.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Not having face to face contact or conversations with my classmates.
This was my first online course. Ever. I'm still surprised at how effective it is as a vehicle toward learning. Much of that had to do with Michael's ability to teach the curricula. I do however, wish there had been actual in classroom, face-to-face time for communicating, sharing and rebuttal.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The class was well organized and the modules were very interesting.
I like the 24/7 availability of the course. This instructor replies to emails promptly and encourages students to email if there are any concerns.
I came into this course with many teachers as my customers. I wanted to utilize obtaining my CTE as getting my, "foot in the door." I had experience as an outsider and want to use that vantage point with what I've learned thus far. I get it now and this is my new lease. On my way to doing so, my hope is that I'll be able to invigorate all the people I come into contact with.

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

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

I think you shouldn't reinvent the wheel, leave the course as it is.
You should touch on the subject of Educational Reform more and create modules specific to that topic.
His teaching of this course was great. In addition, he also coordinated the Praxis workshop for us who needed the help.
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.
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.
none
Giving students notice of when assignments will be graded and returned would be appreciated.
Clarify a few of the rubrics and maybe offer some examples for the E&A assignments to provide a better understanding of expectations.
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.

Great class it was my pleasure
Awesome class!
Great outline for this class.
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.
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!
I enjoyed this course. I did learn a lot. Although, it required lots of time and discipline to get through with some of the assignments.
LOVE THIS CLASS! Even those not looking into a career in education should take this for all the valuable life lessons.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
Only being able to meet once a week with professor and peers for hands-on help.
There was too much information in the modules. It was overwhelming, and somewhat difficult to navigate.
Nothing at all, only due to connection to the internet was the only lack of this online materials being available.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
maybe save more time for study,learn more infromation with other students.
I liked that assignments were manageable, 2 per week.
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.
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.
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.

he can find out some new artical or vedio put in course.
Explain the weekly forums more.
Provide more engaging activities in class, more hands on and interactive activities.
Overall, being in a new setting and being able to adjust and adapt in the area that we were given for the class.
22. Other comments:
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.
Loved this class, very helpful and meaningful!
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.

The Lesson Plan presentation needs more structure, but that's about it.
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.
I dont think he needs too, maybe assign more reading.
Continue having his classes work in groups because it helps us get to know our different classmates and we learn the different ideas of our classmates.
Maybe a little bit more flexibility
Limiting the forums so we can focus more on the assignments.
22. Other comments:
Enjoyed this course!
This is a great class and I have been applying many of the things I've learned from Mr. Cawdery to my service learning.
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.
Love love loved your class!
You truly are an amazing educator! Thanks for a great semester.
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!
overall was a good class just little bit inconvience
I really enjoyed this class and would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students.

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

Be more clear as to where to turn things in online.
This is my first on line course. I can't think of any at this time.

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.
Mr. Cawdery did a very good job on organizing the course. Everything was straight on point syllabus and projects was clearly understandable and doable.

Thank you for your time in teaching this class.
Great Teacher and great lesson plan. Although it was a challenge to keep up, considering being a full time students and full time worker, the course content emphasizes valuable tools for us to use as future educator.
I really enjoyed this online class.
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing.
Having to Navigate to different areas to get information on each assignment on laulima website.
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.
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.
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.
It was an online course and it was hard to do things, other thank that N/A
This is the first time I took an online course, so it was a new experience. I miss the human interaction of being in a traditional classroom, but I appreciate that Mr. Cawdery incorporated and encouraged students to participate in a forum to share knowledge, ideas, and information. I also appreciate the many other benefits of an online course.
n/a
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I really liked that this course was well organized, and the way professor Cawdery presented the weekly topics, especially the videos.
I liked that I was able to go at my own pace while adhering to set deadlines. In addition, the effort that Michael put in to setting up the Laulima site is amazing. It was so organized that it made it easier for me to navigate and stay on task through out the class.
I 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.
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 opening day project and how it was broken down to the different parts reach week. I also thoroughly enjoyed the service learning project.
The coursework is not complicated and it was not necessary to collaborate with other students.
He gave us examples of assignments that needed to be turned in, they give us time to catch up on work.
The flexibility to be able to complete course work with my work schedule.
its online and I can do it at home except the 10 hours of service.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this 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.
-
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.
See above.
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.
Maybe adding a little more examples.
Personally, I really appreciated the flexibility of the assessment assignments, which allowed the student to approach each assignment in a more personal way. Some students may want more direction and rigidity. The only potential improvement would be to mix things up a bit more. For each module (each week), there would be a reading, a forum, and an assignment; so it was a bit repetitive in this sense, though the course was very effective in teaching the learning objectives of the course.

I 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.
This class is overall awesome! Everything we covered is relevant and useful in the teaching profession!
Overall, it's been a pleasure being apart of this online course and I don't usually do well with online course.

N/A
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.

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 workload
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 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.
service learning was a little frustrating because this was my first time doing a service learning assignment.
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 liked some of the forums least. That being said the other ones were a lot of fun to do.
The thing that I liked least was not being able to have him explain things to me face to face.
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.
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 went out of his way to help
I liked that Professor Cawdery made himself very available for all of us, and made his power points with audio as well, it made things more personal.
i like the different learning strategies and procedures that was incorporated into this course.
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 like the creative assignments most because it allowed me to show my future class ideas and what not.
I loved the fact that the course could adjust to my changing schedule.
I liked the creative freedom we had in this class.
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.

strongly recommend his class!
this class is awesome.
I'd just like mention that Professor Cawdery was very understanding throughout the entire course. I had a lot of family problems that came up throughout the course and it made it more than difficult to stick to deadlines. But as I explained each situation that I was in Professor Cawdery understood and simply gave me the advice to "breathe and focus". I don't know if he realizes this or not, but in those few words he helped me more than anyone can ever imagine. This was a great course taught by a great Professor. I enjoyed every bit of it. Thank you!!!!
It was a great first time online class for me!
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!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I didn't really have anything that I liked least about the instructor or the class. The only thing I'd say I disliked was that the class was at a late time for me and I didn't feel motivated to attend class regularly.
I 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.
There wasn't anything I disliked. I thought this class was very organized, with good explanations and examples. Mr. Cawdery was very helpful and on top of his game.
Having people read your assignemnts
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 thought it was ahrd at times when I didn't understand an assignment.
I did not take this class online.
I liked how he explained everything so clearly (: Definitely made me understand the assignments way better.
Alot of projects.
I didn't like the technical difficulties. Some videos didn't appear clearly.
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.
Sometimes hard to gauge how to complete assignments when there's no face to face interaction.
I thought that everything was great in this course and I would really recommend this course to anyone who is interested.
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.
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.
Sometimes I was unclear as to what exactly he wanted with assignments.
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.
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.
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 hard to keep up with everything with no face to face class, but overall I was okay
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
There were many quality work samples to help guide us and show us what our finish product should look like.
I liked that Laulima was easy to understand because Mr Cawdery provided voice and video instructions on the site. I also liked how the assignments were easy to submit online.
I liked that we had the opportunity to resubmit online to correct and perfect our work.
I liked the different forums and assignments we had, it covered a lot of different things but it wasn't to broad where you were lost. Mr. Cawdery took us on a journey and built us up steadily!
I like how we can chat with the others about the class
It wasnt constantly more work to turn in next class period.
I liked how we turned everything in online. That was easier for me rather than turning in millions of paper work.
I did not take this class online.
I liked how he gave examples of the work that needed to be done. It gave me a better understanding of all assignments.
Very fun teacher and is just a great teacher!
Everything online was well organized and structured. Due dates and instructions were clear.
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.
All students participated in discussions creating a friendly environment where we could all voice our opinions.
The flexibility to work on assignments in the evening after work.
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 autonomy was kind of nice.
Filled with a lot of information. Much needed for an online course.
Nothing, I wish I could have taken this class in person :(
The assignments were really fun!! They were real life things we would use in teaching.
I liked the reading assignments and being able to rewind information.
It is convenient, you can work on the material when time is available.
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 how helpful the instructor was even though we never met face to face

13. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The final project.
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.
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.
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.
Learning about the different groups that we will teach when we have our own classroom. And methods and stratergies to help better their learning.
The best aspect of the course was that we go over the homework throughout the week so that by the time Sunday comes (homework due date), we have an idea on how to complete the work. I also like the positive atmosphere of the class.
I 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.
Michael always returns my calls and he makes the time to help me with the problems I having in this course.
i liked the new strategies we learned for each students disability
14. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Reading long articles.
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.
the environment is in a relaxed setting and everyone gets along with each other
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
honestly, the readings. If everything was a youtube video, that would be cool.
I didn't like how our Final Project was explained to us. I think the instructions should be more precise and clear.
Nothing.
Not grading our assignments on time.
class lectures
15. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It's cool.
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.
excellent because I feel more prepared to tackle students with challenges
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.
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.
This course was very informative. I like how there's a reoccuring theme throughtout the semester. Overall, this course was good.
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.
Michael is very understanding and available when you need him.
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.
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 !
No comments.
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?
Organization
I liked how Michael Cawdery accepts late work assignments.
All assignments were very interesting and excellent put together. A lot of times the assignments and reading helped me in my own class.
Good materials to prepare for teaching
The forums and most of the assignments.
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.
Everything, even though I had/have the experience of working in the education field it is always great to learn and gain new knowledge.
I liked the forums and the assignments which was really resourceful for me in my Educational Journey about learning more about education.
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.
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!
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.
i enjoyed the forums, they were always very interesting
hands on learning
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.
I enjoyed the the entire course from the material it's self to the activities, group work, and projects
The aspects that I really enjoyed were the classroom display, classroom management, watching Harry Wong emphasizing the importance of classroom procedures and routines.
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 liked that there was a classroom work day as well as a strong internet component.
ALL
The videos we watched in class.
i liked the interaction that happened in class every class and we are always engaged
I liked every thing about the course. The instructor made each and every class enjoyable and interesting. I hope to have this instructor for more of my education courses.
I 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
I liked that Mr. Cawdery always made the class fun every time I stepped into the classroom.
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 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.
That he is always willing to help his students no matter what.
He is an active and good instructor. Most of the assignments were relevant and helpful.
I like how Michael Cawdery taught this course with a lot of passion and knowledge. He is a very great speaker and encourages his students to do their best. He is a great mentor and gives the best advice about classroom management.
He was very consistent with helping his students when they needed his assistance.
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.
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!
Mr cawderys willingness to help us
Creating my own class, lesson plans, parent letter, and having the opportunity to work with students through service learning.
I liked the team building activities.
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.
Internship
The aspects that I like the best is learning how to make a classroom successful. This curriculum was based on how to become a successful teacher, classroom management, lesson plans, how to keep students in tact, rules and procedures. These were by far the most useful information that I have learned in this class.
I 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.
online forums and assignments.
Lesson Plan and service learning were fun! Also hands-on activities!
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.
A lot of knowledge provided. Helpful resources
Very personal towards course and students.
video clip examples. The topics for lesson plans were open to any subject.
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?
None everything was good
A times the forum, Assignments, and Module was not clear which took me several times reading and reading until I got it.
N/A
Reading...
None
The only hard thing about it is trying to balance getting an assignment in every sunday with my other 3 classes. Which I've gotten everyone in except these past 3 which I'm hoping to get catch up on.
I disliked all the assignments.
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.
Assignments were tough at times
not understand online assignments
N/A
The time of the class was the only thing I struggled with but I know that it is something that is hard to change
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.
No comment
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.
none
see above box
The Forums are what I least liked about the course.
Nothing
I don't think I had a time that I didn't like. Mr. Cawdery's class was always fun and active.
I can't think about anything I didn't like about the course
I really cannot say much. I really enjoyed this course.
Taking it online because it was challenging
I am having trouble with the service learning assignment. I have contacted each of 3 school, multiple times and have gotten no response. I started contacting six weeks ago. Now, I know there is not enough time to complete the work and I know that I will fail the course. This assignment should be eliminated or the professor needs to have an active role in recruiting schools to comply.
I least liked the Lesson Plan Presentation because I was kind of unprepared. I really wished that the forum about the LP presentations was assigned to us the week before the presenations that way it would have been clear exactly what was wanted from the presenation. I did not know that we could present it through a powerpoint so I only had my Lesson plan to show. Though it is good he gives us a chance to still make changes to our lesson plan online and resubmit them.
The reading assignments on laulima.
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.
N/a
All the forums.
Mandatory interaction with other students
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.
N/A
attendence.
There was nothing that i did not like.
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.
most assignment due on a weekly basis straight
N/A
I did not like the lack of clarity on the instructions of certain assignments. Some assignments seemed unclear, and there were a few of them that had different criteria listed on the rubric and the assignment instructions.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
10/10
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.
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.
Good! I enjoyed it!
Despite the overload from all my classes, I really liked this course.
Excellent! Every student who is going into teaching and teachers who are already teaching, should go through this course at least once!
Excellent
He is a good professor for an online class he really explained things well to me. He got back to me in a timely manner. Was helpful in explaining my assignments to me. I would recommend his class to others.
excellent!
I will recommend it to others
This class is very helpful!!
Great course. Everyone in education should take this course. We get bits and pieces of classroom management in other classes but nothing this thorough.
Good
it was a great class i learned a lot
it is a great course to take, it inspired me to become a great teacher
I loved it the students and teacher all the work and the comfortability in the class
The overall evaluation xcellent. Great teaching skills and knowledgeable in the course.
AWESOME!
Excellent!
Awesome
Great! I learned so much from this class.
the course was great great information great teaching..loved it
I would evaluate and rate this course as excellent and would recommend it to other students.
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.
My overall evaluation of this course was it was fun. It kept the mind going. Always active.
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
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.
That it's a good course to take and I reccomend this teacher
good
I think this course was excellent because the class was very interactive and involved a lot of hands-on activities. It is so helpful to take this class for future teachers.
Great Professor and a useful course to help with 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.
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.
Great intro to ed course by mr cawdery
Excellent course. Really showed me how important managing a classroom is and what difference it can make.
It was good.
It's a good course that challenged me.
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
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.
GREAT!
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.
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.
Excellent. I was able to obtain a lot of knowledge and could use these in future references/resources. Ability to apply to career.
Learned a lot of resources that I can use in my own classroom in the future.
I thought this course along with Professor Cawdery's knowledge of subject matter was very helpful and informative.
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
He is a great teacher!!!
Loved it
Mahalo for your time and passion in teaching this class.
The professor and class was great.
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.
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! :)
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 had a great semester in this class!!!
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.
N/A
I would recommend this course to other students that want to get their AAT degree!
Thank YOU Michael!
Good teacher.
Awesome teacher.

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
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.
The professors! :)
I like that we met once a month.
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!
The food.
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!
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.
16. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Service Learning schools should reserve teachers that are willing to take in students rather than being forced to take them in by principals.
N/A
NONE

Nothing!

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!

time constraints.

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?
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 wish some forums could be anonymous.
I don't learn well in an online 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.
having to rush home from work to meet deadline.
N/a
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.
I'm not an online fanatic, I rather attend face to face course.
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 like everything about the course.
The video clips were not playing and it was very frustrating.
I didn't like the discrepancies between specified due dates.
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.
The 10 hours of service learning. It was a great experience and overall gratifying but posed a slight inconvenience.
Nothing. I like this class.
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 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.
Feedback on assignments was not as quick as I would have liked.
Everything about this course was great!!
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.
Took in class.
it was good, no problems
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.
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.
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
What I liked least about the online was that I just needed more time to submit my work, so that part is my fault.
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.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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 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.
N/A
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.
the forums.
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 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.
timely announcement.
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.
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.
Mostly everything about the course.
The course, the work, the deadlines and the grading were all very organized and laid out from the beginning.
I liked that the course taught me to be responsible in keeping up with the work.
i think this course needs to be revamped - i learned nothing.
That it was completely online, it was understandable and perfectly organized.
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.
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 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.
I like that I can manage my own time and complete assignments as I want.
Everything was easy to do. For assignments, I could turn it in early and start the next.
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.
Took in class. Great teacher! Makes learning fun!!
i liked the teacher
I liked it because it gave me more flexibility.
Overall, the class was decent.
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
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!
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.

The great professor!
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.
How personable the teacher was! I also liked the student to student interaction.
Having the most awesomest teacher
For all the fun activities he used to explain some lessons.
Mr. Cawdery for being an awesome teacher.
how fun this class was.
Interesting and useful
The amount of confidence that he instilled into his students. It made me want to work harder.
doing forums and assignments...
having the most to teach me and having a very educated teacher.
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.
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.
how to establish authority.
The organization.
I will remember the youtube clip for week one regarding a teacher's salary.
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.
The service learning i performed.
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.
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.
"Nothing in this book will prepare you for your first day of teaching." I think this course is definately realistic.
The fundamental things that I learned from it.
N/A
The modules, and doing the reflection assignments.
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.
Mr. Cawderys awesome personality!
Implementing strategies for developing routines.
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 energy our professor comes to start our day and all the group activities as well.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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.
I feel that I made a good choice picking my first Education class :D
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.
great teacher.
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.
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.
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.

Great Course, Great Teacher. Thanks!!
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.
Great course!
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 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 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!

14. What did you like least about your online course experience?
none
Meeting on Monday evenings was very difficult for myself and my family.
I missed being in a classroom meeting my classmates. But other than that it was great!
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.
The rationales were very difficult and felt lost with them at times. Other than that, nothing.
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.
little personal contact
I would rather have a face to face class.
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.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
Mr. Cawdery is always open to helping students in need.
Online course provides flexibility for my schedule, which is the most helpful.
It was easy to keep track of the assignments.
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.
Made going to class fun, informative, and helpful.
That we meet once a month to see how we was doing and it was organized.
Being that it was online, we did get to move at our own pace I guess.
use of multiple media (video, document downloads)
It was something new that I got to experience.

Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by the interesting projects that was required, the awesome and motivating instructors.
Our binder we made
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.
Looking back at my assignments and my 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.
The teachers and their passion in the field and passion for teaching the students!
doing our portfolio, and the work we did in this class.
All the papers we had to put together to make the portfolio.
Because Cawdery is a great mentor
Being the first online class that I have taken.
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.

22. Other comments:
Terrific course.
GREAT CLASS!
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!
I had a great, yet challenging semester. Overall, I enjoyed the course.
Loved what I learned about making a rationale. At least I will know what is to be expected when doing my bachelor's.
