I did not get to interact with any of the other students.
I really can't think of anything. Being online was very convenient to my situation and having great teachers (especially Cawdery) made everything so much easier.
sometimes its hard for me to ask the assignment problems.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I could do the assignments my own paste, and Mr. Cawdery made the modules easy to understand without him being there physically.
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.

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

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
That Laulima would not work sometimes.
I did not do an online course.
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.
I didn't like having to do the forum in class and having to still type in the work or lesson you have learned for the week. I would have prefer to just do the forum as a class. I think that would have help a lot and have given the class more time to do better on their assignments or projects. A student can try to follow the examples but each required a lot of time to do. Which in most cases, students have a lot of homework to juggle and instead of running out of time and just putting their half effort to it. A balance work load, especially for those who can't comprehend it right away will not like doing online homework/classes because they can't get the extra help they need. Giving in class time for the students to do their work will make sure they do their work and can have their answers right away or be helped by their peers or teacher. It seems like the work load online was way too fast.
Navigating through the modules, forums and assignments.
I liked everything.
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.
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 really because my class was in person, the online resources were very helpful.
N/A
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.
Nothing, Michael Cawdery was able to provide clear instructions and examples for our weekly assignments
I disliked the amount of time we had to do assignments.
A lot to do on the assignments
Sometimes the links did not work so I had trouble completing a few assignments
I wish there was more thorough instruction.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It made assignments easy to complete
N/A
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.
I liked that the online modules, forums, and due dates were organized. I liked that each assignment was given at the end of the week and were able to resubmit it.
Communicating with other students through forums and examples of assignments.
I liked having to turn in assignments online instead of printing out assignments & having to turn them in during class.
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.
The variety of resources that were available to us were very helpful.
Online resources like modules, forums, being able to communicate through email.
I liked that this was an in class course, but the work was all completed online.
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.
he interacts with the class, everyone is able to speak freely.
It was good.
The information was all there clear and consistent
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.
This course was organized and structured in a thorough manner.

22. Other comments:
He is a really awesome teacher and being in his class made it fun to learn things everyday you walk in his class.
I enjoyed this class a lot.
Mr. Cawdery is so fun, energetic, and such a genius. He has great engaging activities and is humorous which makes learning exciting and inviting. Thanks for an awesome semester
I believe Mr. Cawdery is the right instructor to do the job for future teachers. The material or assignments given for this course is a lot of work but this is the kind of work that will actually make an aspiring teacher become qualified teachers. For someone who has a lot of time may be able to keep up with the work load, but I think this class just need a lot of more guidance, time, in-class group work to accomplish the assignments to fully understand the material.If a student want to challenge themselves this is the right class. Just have to make sure you don't take out the fun in learning or else those who can be great teachers may learn to hate teaching. Overall I would take this class again.
Michael is the right man for the job.
This was a fun & interesting course.
Michael Cawdery is an excellent instructor. I really enjoyed taking his class and really wish I could take more courses from him.
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
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing really.
Amount of work that was required for the entire course was too much for me to handle on top of my other classes. I was not expecting this much work.
I really prefer writing things by hand, so did not really like all the hw being online.
I liked the online assignments and forums.
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 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 thought that the links that were provided online, really allowed the me to breakdown the information that he had been giving us so that I could use digital media (videos) that he gave us so that I could understand what was going on instead of having to read through a bunch of materials.
Nothing really.
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?
I got to interact with other people.
In-class time was very engaging and fun. The professor was easy going and I personally learned a whole lot just by sitting in his classes.
That it was easy to access and tons of examples for the assignment, that was definitely very helpful.
Everything i think laulima is so convinient
The ability to interact with classmates on forums.
I love the online submission of assignments; this is very convenient.
I liked the many examples of previous work that was done, so I had examples to refer back to so that I would be able to understand what was fully expected of us and how to get the best grade.
I like that it's consecutive. That it's timely and relevent.
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!

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!
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 found that Cawdery was an absolutely amazing teacher! He tried very hard to make sure that all of his students understood what was going on, and that we had a lot of fun learning the material. He also came to school excited and ready to teach. I think he is an excellent teacher that really gets the students excited about becoming a teacher and really breaks down the responsibilities that involve the students. If he taught any other classes I would really enjoy taking his class again!
I like that he is prepared and enthusiastic about this course.
I liked how Cawdery addressed the disruptive students effectively.
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.
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!!!
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
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.
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.
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.
I would have like to see the grading come back sooner, but it was not a problem.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
The content of the course is easy to relate to.
Professor Cawdery was helpful and his assignments related to the lectures. Awesome teacher!
The forums. So much fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed the forums as they bridged the distance, unmasked the fact that this was an online class. I had a lot of very spirited debates from my classmates about my responses to the forums. Yet, the forums were cut short. I highly recommend that the forums continue to the end of the course as they complimented the assignments.
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 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.
learning about elementary education. service learning hours was a big plus. i learned about how the systems works.
The assistance from my Professor. He was awesome and guided me along with this course. He was very fair and understanding of the students progression. Professor is very aware of the students progress and expresses the will to help student with their problems.
The videos and extra links were helpful, encouraging, and thought provoking. Mr Cawdery was quick with response to email questions and concerns regarding assignments.
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!

22. Other comments:
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.
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.
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!
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
Not having face to face contact or conversations with my classmates.
Time
nothing
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I came into this course with many teachers as my customers. I wanted to utilize obtaining my CTE as getting my, "foot in the door." I had experience as an outsider and want to use that vantage point with what I've learned thus far. I get it now and this is my new lease. On my way to doing so, my hope is that I'll be able to invigorate all the people I come into contact with.
I like the 24/7 availability of the course. This instructor replies to emails promptly and encourages students to email if there are any concerns.
The class was well organized and the modules were very interesting.

Of course, the material presented in this class will become invaluable when it comes to dealing with different learning abilities and knowing the resources available to me.

Weekly assignments.

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

17. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
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.
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.
All of the material covered were valuable for the teaching profession.
The lesson planning phase and opening day portion of the class.
Case study
They Harry Wong videos, I'm an auditory/visual learner and I really got into those. The points he made and they way he did things, they resonated the most with me. More so than the reading. It was really amazing to hear his stories and struggles and know that someone out there can help you make a plan for success
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.
Specifically the strategies of classroom management - procedures, classroom setup, dealing with the disruptive student.
The textbook and module info.
Pretty much everything. I honestly felt every assignment helped me get a better idea of what I need to do when I become a teacher.
I loved that you could submit assignments on a variety of formats such as video, powerpoint, word doc.
I believe some of the assignment help you realize some things we will need to do to prepare for opening a classroom and being effective
18. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
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)
Everything was valuable. I believe this class needs part II to dive further into some of the content.
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, there really wasn't any fluff that could be left out. Everything was valuable.
Some of the video clips could be omitted to keep the modules more simplified.

Overall, the class was great! I couldn't ask for anything more.
I believe most of the material were focused on elementary school levels and not much in regards to high school or a CTE setting.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
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.
His teaching of this course was great. In addition, he also coordinated the Praxis workshop for us who needed the help.
I think you shouldn't reinvent the wheel, leave the course as it is.
Clarify a few of the rubrics and maybe offer some examples for the E&A assignments to provide a better understanding of expectations.
Giving students notice of when assignments will be graded and returned would be appreciated.
na
none
You should touch on the subject of Educational Reform more and create modules specific to that topic.
Needs to not have so many tabs, websites, links etc for an assignment. he may be a tech wizard but many of us are not and you spend half you time trying to find the resources etc. also the assignment come in too many parts. read two articles for each article list three things ... for each of these three things define 2 things for these two things list 8 other things on tuesday if the wind is blowing out of the north lol.... you have to create an outline before you do some of the assignments.
22. Other comments:
I really like the video clips, they helped me a lot especially doing class online. Sometimes watching it is better than too much reading because we get a better understanding of what the teacher is trying to explain.
Great outline for this class.
Great class it was my pleasure
LOVE THIS CLASS! Even those not looking into a career in education should take this for all the valuable life lessons.
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.
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!
Awesome class!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
that is new for me, but that is convenient.
There was too much information in the modules. It was overwhelming, and somewhat difficult to navigate.
Only being able to meet once a week with professor and peers for hands-on help.
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?
I liked that assignments were manageable, 2 per week.
maybe save more time for study,learn more infromation with other students.
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.
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.
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.

Provide more engaging activities in class, more hands on and interactive activities.
Explain the weekly forums more.
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:
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.
he give us a lot of good information about teaching experience.
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.

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

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

22. Other comments:
Mr. Cawdery is a wonderful teacher. He kept his students engaged and his class intertesting. I like his humor. He's a great classroom manager and that is the point of the class so I'd say us, collectively, as students definitely benefited from him instructing the course. I'm a fan.
You truly are an amazing educator! Thanks for a great semester.
Love love loved your class!
This is a great class and I have been applying many of the things I've learned from Mr. Cawdery to my service learning.
overall was a good class just little bit inconvience
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!
I really enjoyed this class and would recommend Professor Cawdery to other students.
Enjoyed this course!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The videos should be compatible to both PC and Macbook. I was unable to access the videos in modules with PC. I upgraded Quicktime and used other browser with upgrade, but was still unsuccessful. The help desk couldn't help me either. The only solution they could give me was to do it in the computer lab. I was frustrated because I had to purchase a Macbook in order to view them.
Too many assignments with little time to complete them. One assignment per week with one forum per week was what was assigned. It could have been done with better quality and more thought if he allowed more time for certain assignments.
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.
N/A
I was able to share and see thoughts and ideas to my other fellow classmates.
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 online videos that were hosted on laulima did not play or played very slowly.
You need to be very diligent to get the assignments done or it is very easy to fall behind.
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.
it was confusing figuring out where to turn things in, this is the first time i have every had an online class.
the thing that i least liked about this online course experience was that i should of taken in class because the courses I was fun to do and I could just imagine having to do it in class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
-The sample materials in each assignment was helpful. -The instructor was quick with his response to my emails. -I do like that Mr. Cawdery gives us the opportunity to resubmit low scoring assignments to obtain a better grade.
I feel like this class allowed me to earn my grade. Gave me a sense of achievement.
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.
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.
Allows us to submit anytime we can.
I definitely like interacting with other students in the forums and working on with the projects which is fun and interactive.
Late assignments are accepted and re-submission of assignments are very very helpful.
Relevant; real world
I liked how there was still interaction through the forums to feel like a regular in-person class.

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

Having to Navigate to different areas to get information on each assignment on laulima website.
There is a serious lack of organization that makes it difficult to tell what the exact requirements are for some assignments. There are too many places to find information. It would be much more beneficial to have all the requirements for a single assignment in one or two places instead of three or four in order to cut down on the inconsistencies.
Adjusting to the online course format was a little difficult in the beginning.
Nothing. Class was great!

This is the first time I took an online course, so it was a new experience.

I also appreciate the many other benefits of an online course.

The coursework is not complicated and it was not necessary to collaborate with other students.
I think the expectations for the class were well organized. The assignments and due dates were clearly communicated.
That I had a week to do each assignment.
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.
The flexibility to be able to complete course work with my work schedule.
He gave us examples of assignments that needed to be turned in, they give us time to catch up on work.
The opening day project and how it was broken down to the different parts reach week. I also thoroughly enjoyed the service learning project.
I really liked that this course was well organized, and the way professor Cawdery presented the weekly topics, especially the videos.
its online and I can do it at home except the 10 hours of service.
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!!!!

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.
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.
n/a; I think it was well organized. I enjoyed the course.
-
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.
Maybe adding a little more examples.
See above.
n/a
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.
22. Other comments:
Overall, it's been a pleasure being apart of this online course and I don't usually do well with online course.
-
This class is overall awesome! Everything we covered is relevant and useful in the teaching profession!
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.
N/A
I learned so much from this course, Thank You! I learned to be more organized, and I've improved my management skills.. I am more confident in becoming a teacher now compared to before I took this class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
Sometimes the instructions were unclear. Instructions given on-line can be interpreted differently from teacher to student. So, my instructor sets instructions and guidelines, but I may interpret them differently than how he wanted it to be competed.
The information Mr. Cawdery gave us through the modules is very helpful. I enjoy every video and article in it.
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.
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 thing that I liked least was not being able to have him explain things to me face to face.
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.
I have no problems with the course or the curriculum, just summer for me was bad timing(condensed and accelerated). I really gained a lot in such a short period.
I liked some of the forums least. That being said the other ones were a lot of fun to do.
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.
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 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 the creative freedom we had in this class.
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 loved the fact that the course could adjust to my changing schedule.
So many useful resources and the info provided by Mr. Cawdery. I know I am benefiting from from some of my assignments thanks to Mr. Cawdery and Ms. Erin Thompson. Some co-workers in the construction academy program are considering taking this course soon.
I like the creative assignments most because it allowed me to show my future class ideas and what not.

21. Other comments:
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!!!!
this class is awesome.
strongly recommend his class!
I am now going through my first week of students at Roosevelt High and most of my assignments like procedures and rules are all in place. plus I went over my syllabus and lesson plans on the first day. Much Mahalo Teach!
It was a great first time online class for me!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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
I thought it was ahrd at times when I didn't understand an assignment.
Alot of projects.
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 don't like submitting assignments online, I'd much rather submit hard copies in class. I am more of a verbal person to person learner.
I did not take this class online.
I didn't like the technical difficulties. Some videos didn't appear clearly.
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 liked how he explained everything so clearly (: Definitely made me understand the assignments way better.
Nothing, it was just my fault for my bad time management skills.
The lack of face-to-face time. This was my first experience with a DL course, and I have learned that it is not my preferred format. This is at no fault of the instructor of course, as I felt as though Mr. Cawdery was well organized.
Some of the instructions were unclear and confusing, but nothing totally unforgiving.
Sometimes I was unclear as to what exactly he wanted with assignments.
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.
I thought that everything was great in this course and I would really recommend this course to anyone who is interested.
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.
Sometimes hard to gauge how to complete assignments when there's no face to face interaction.
It was only on my part, i haven't been keeping up because i kept forgetting to check laulima. But really the class was great.
Motivation to go online and complete assignments. Towards the end of the semester I got lazy and didn't meet deadlines. Shame on me. In person classes are a little more easier in completing assignments on time, I'd have no choice, I'd see the teacher every other day.
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 I enjoyed everything I learned and did.
Nothing, everything was put into simple explanation
The fact that if I had a question, it wouldn't be answered immediately, like if I was in a face to face class.
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?
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
There were many quality work samples to help guide us and show us what our finish product should look like.
I liked how we turned everything in online. That was easier for me rather than turning in millions of paper work.
Very fun teacher and is just a great teacher!
It wasnt constantly more work to turn in next class period.
I liked that we had the opportunity to resubmit online to correct and perfect our work.
I did not take this class online.
Everything online was well organized and structured. Due dates and instructions were clear.
I liked that Laulima was easy to understand because Mr Cawdery provided voice and video instructions on the site. I also liked how the assignments were easy to submit online.
I liked how he gave examples of the work that needed to be done. It gave me a better understanding of all assignments.
Nothing, I wish I could have taken this class in person :(
The autonomy was kind of nice.
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.
The assignments were really fun!! They were real life things we would use in teaching.
All students participated in discussions creating a friendly environment where we could all voice our opinions.
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.
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 readings and assignments. The forums and modules were understandable and fun and i had an outline presented to me every week for what was due. I was updated immediately if something changed and I am able to view assignment due dates and descriptions at any time.
The flexibility to work on assignments in the evening after work.
I liked the reading assignments and being able to rewind information.
Filled with a lot of information. Much needed for an online course.
It is convenient, you can work on the material when time is available.
The assignments were challenging and helped me to learn a lot of new and different things.
length of time to do activites.
I like the convienece, and that all materials/assignments are written down and I can refer back to any information from prior modules.
I liked how helpful the instructor was even though we never met face to face

13. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Michael always returns my calls and he makes the time to help me with the problems I having in this course.
Learning about the different groups that we will teach when we have our own classroom. And methods and stratergies to help better their learning.
Allowing students to explore material by viewing websites and articles instead of a straight lecture.
Ways to assist students with disabilities, and always keeping an open mind with students and their personal lives.
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 enjoyed the entire scope of the material covered and felt that it was imperative to the preparation of any aspiring educator. Michael Cawdery is a phenomenal instructor that not only constructed his curriculum around conveying pertinent information, but also helped greatly when there was a concept or idea that needed clarification. Michael Cawdery exceeded my expectations as an instructor which in turn made the content of the course much easier to grasp and to put into context. I would highly recommend Michael Cawdery as an instructor to my peers.
i liked the new strategies we learned for each students disability
I liked the group projects/works in this class.
Presentations at end of semester, group work/discussions, classmates that showed up to class.
I liked that professor Cawdery was very knowledgeable about the course material. Teaching a class on teaching is difficult but he made it seem otherwise. He was very friendly and willing to help and he often presented the course work in an interesting, hands-on way.
The final project.
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.
14. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Not grading our assignments on time.
honestly, the readings. If everything was a youtube video, that would be cool.
the environment is in a relaxed setting and everyone gets along with each other
N/A
Nothing.
class lectures
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.
I'm not a fan of online assignments because I personally just forget to submit them by a certain time. Other than that, I did not dislike anything about the course.
Reading long articles.
I didn't like how our Final Project was explained to us. I think the instructions should be more precise and clear.
15. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Michael is very understanding and available when you need him.
I really do enjoy this class. I reccomend this course to EVERYONE who wants to be a teacher. get exposed now and learn more later.
excellent because I feel more prepared to tackle students with challenges
Excellent, Professor is easy to understand, always available for help, always replies to emails, always making the students feel comfortable.
Wonderful. I know that this course is actually an elective ED course, but in my humble opinion this is a course that contains curriculum that should be required for all AAT students. Honestly, I cannot see becoming a teacher without covering the information that was taught in this class.
i liked this course it was very life changing and inspirational for me whewn i become a teacher. i learned many strategies and different disabilities in this course.
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.
This course is excellent. Very thorough and everything profess Cawdery presents is relevant. The final project, in which we needed to go out into the education community and meet with an educator or organization, was a great way to have us internalize everything we had learned throughout the semester.
It's cool.
This course was very informative. I like how there's a reoccuring theme throughtout the semester. Overall, this course was good.

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.
He's a great teacher.

15. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The forums and most of the assignments.
I liked the forums and the assignments which was really resourceful for me in my Educational Journey about learning more about education.
I liked how Michael Cawdery accepts late work assignments.
It was so organized. Although it was not a face-to-face class, I was able to gain several knowleadge via Laulima that I will be able to apply into my actual situation.
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
Everything, even though I had/have the experience of working in the education field it is always great to learn and gain new knowledge.
Organization
i enjoyed the forums, they were always very interesting
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!
Video clips were helpful
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 really liked the way Professor Cawdery helped me out via email. Anytime I had a question, he always responded in a very timely manner. I especially liked how all the ED classes in laulima are almost exactly the same (format wise) so no matter what professor I have, I know the format of their Laulima tab will be similar.
I enjoyed the the entire course from the material it's self to the activities, group work, and projects
He used videos, hands-on activities, and incorporated group work. Very understanding and appreciative. Encouraged students to share their ideas and made everyone's responses relevant.
The aspects that I really enjoyed were the classroom display, classroom management, watching Harry Wong emphasizing the importance of classroom procedures and routines.
ALL
i liked the interaction that happened in class every class and we are always engaged
I liked that there was a classroom work day as well as a strong internet component.
The videos we watched in class.
I liked every thing about the course. The instructor made each and every class enjoyable and interesting. I hope to have this instructor for more of my education courses.
I liked the fact that he took the time to make sure we understood the class and objectives. He gave me sense of seeing what it is to become a teacher. Also he made class enjoyable and made sure me were okay and if not then he was always there to help me.
hands on learning
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!
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.
I liked that Mr. Cawdery always made the class fun every time I stepped into the classroom.
I enjoy working in class and doing group activities. We did hands on activities and things that we can apply to our daily life.
I 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 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.
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.
Mr cawderys willingness to help us
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.
The big projects were broken up into parts. Liked that, also liked that there were models and examples for each portion. Made it relevant
He was very consistent with helping his students when they needed his assistance.
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 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 class was very easy to understand while also being fun and interesting.
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.
Very personal towards course and students.
Internship
video clip examples. The topics for lesson plans were open to any subject.
I liked how we were able to work together as groups and the fact that we can resubmit our assignments if we feel like we didn't put our all into it.
Creating my own class, lesson plans, parent letter, and having the opportunity to work with students through service learning.
Lesson Plan and service learning were fun! Also hands-on activities!
I liked the team building activities.
The way we had more discussion versus lecture kept me more interested, was a nice change.
A lot of knowledge provided. Helpful resources
The aspects that I like the best is learning how to make a classroom successful. This curriculum was based on how to become a successful teacher, classroom management, lesson plans, how to keep students in tact, rules and procedures. These were by far the most useful information that I have learned in this class.
online forums and assignments.
I appreciated the fact that our instructor was very quick to answer to any questions we had on our assignments.
16. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Reading...
I disliked all the assignments.
A times the forum, Assignments, and Module was not clear which took me several times reading and reading until I got it.
N/A
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.
None everything was good
Assignments were tough at times
Since Dr. Cawdery has changed the course around from previous semesters the titles do not match what we are actually working on. Also some proof reading would be good.
None
The time of the class was the only thing I struggled with but I know that it is something that is hard to change
No comment
I enjoyed every aspect of the course, yes for me some were stressful only because I am not computer literate but through this course I learned to use the computer and was able to accomplish and complete the required assignments.
none
There was no aspect of this course which I found non-helpful in my education journey.
The assignments were lengthy and I found it hard to manage dealing with so much other things.
see above box
N/A
not understand online assignments
I can't say much. Because I wasn't familier with modern technology, the most difficult part was figuring out how to use the forums, submit work via online and find certain articles. But by mid-semester, I had enough help to figure out how to access stuff like that.
The Forums are what I least liked about the course.
I don't think I had a time that I didn't like. Mr. Cawdery's class was always fun and active.
I liked everything we did in class. nothing was bad.
I really cannot say much. I really enjoyed this course.
that the period was short so we did not get to as much as we could have
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.
Nothing
The reading assignments on laulima.
I can't think about anything I didn't like about the course
What I like least about the course is because is to short. I wish it was little bit longer so i can gain all things that i need to learned to be a success student. Also because it take me time to learn the course. I was really starting to get to know what i was doing in the classroom and what was expected of me.
There isn't anything negative that I found about this course.
N/A
Mandatory interaction with other students
N/A
N/a
There was nothing that i did not like.
All the forums.
It seemed like everything we did in class was what the assignment for that week was. Which would have been great, but I do all my assignments ahead of time so coming to class was kind of a waste.
most assignment due on a weekly basis straight
There was no aspect I least liked, because all of the information the professor taught, and explained were all important. The only thing I had a hard time understanding was always the directions for some assignments. There was rubrics, but some of the rubrics weren't clear, and they were just confusing.
attendence.
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...
Despite the overload from all my classes, I really liked this course.
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.
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.
excellent!
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!
Excellent
10/10
Good
This class is very helpful!!
I will recommend it to others
Great course. Everyone in education should take this course. We get bits and pieces of classroom management in other classes but nothing this thorough.
Excellent! Every student who is going into teaching and teachers who are already teaching, should go through this course at least once!
I loved it the students and teacher all the work and the comfortability in the class
AWESOME!
The overall evaluation xcellent. Great teaching skills and knowledgeable in the course.
Awesome
the course was great great information great teaching..loved it
Excellent!
Great! I learned so much from this class.
I would evaluate and rate this course as excellent and would recommend it to other students.
it is a great course to take, it inspired me to become a great teacher
it was a great class i learned a lot
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.
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.
My overall evaluation of this course was it was fun. It kept the mind going. Always active.
This course was very helpful in my filed. I learned alot about becoming a teacher and creating a lesson plan to start of teaching.
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
Great intro to ed course by mr cawdery
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.
Excellent teaching, excellent course.
Great Professor and a useful course to help with future teachers.
that the course is helpful to apply to actual situations and it was an eye- opening learning experiences as to how to be an effective instructor
My overall evaluation of this course is the best I have ever learned. Im glad that it's been though in School.
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.
It's a good course that challenged me.
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.
This course is very knowledgable and very interactive in terms of actually working with teachers from other schools and creating lesson plans and procedures that we will need to learn how to make.
Excellent course. Really showed me how important managing a classroom is and what difference it can make.
Its an excellent course, even though i learned most of the things in this class already in teachers academy, i still loved it because it refreshed my memory and it was interesting to learn more.
It was good.
It is a good course I would recommend. Nothing unreasonable or difficult.
Excellent. I was able to obtain a lot of knowledge and could use these in future references/resources. Ability to apply to career.
I would refer anyone to take this course, the professor is fun! laid back allows a variety of ways to turn in work! This professor provides great insight based on past experiences, he makes the course relate-able
GREAT!
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.

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

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.
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 professors! :)
How helpful the teachers were, and how the modules were set up really helped me get through the course with no problems. And the teachers were the best!
I 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 food.

Service Learning schools should reserve teachers that are willing to take in students rather than being forced to take them in by principals.

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.
Great course, and the teachers care and that really makes a difference!
Awesome awesome teacher!
Thanks for a good semester!

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?
I don't learn well in an online course.
N/a
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.
I'm not an online fanatic, I rather attend face to face course.
I wish some forums could be anonymous.
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.
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.
having to rush home from work to meet deadline.
From working on the forums and assignments, it was something different. I honestly didn't like having to do forums for both online classes.
sometimes the instructions weren't clear enough.
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.
Nothing. I like this class.
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 video clips were not playing and it was very frustrating.
I didn't like the discrepancies between specified due dates.
Everything about this course was great!!
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.
The 10 hours of service learning. It was a great experience and overall gratifying but posed a slight inconvenience.
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 actually found I enjoyed this online class, so i didn't dislike anything
I like everything about the course.
Feedback on assignments was not as quick as I would have liked.
There is not one thing i don't like about this course.
N/A
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.
That everything (assignments mostly) had to be turned in online. The forums were a bit difficult, because I had never done something like that before and I had to open up with people I never met before (people from other classes could read them).
Sometimes the online instructions for assignments were unclear.
Like all my Ed classes, I see the forums as a waste of time. Busywork, basically. I'll write them, then completely forget about them.
Took in class.
it was good, no problems
What I liked least about the online was that I just needed more time to submit my work, so that part is my fault.
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.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
N/A
I liked how everything was online and all the lessons we learned in class were online. So just incase we needed to review something it would always be online so we can use it as reference.
That even though we not in class, you can reach the material online.
timely announcement.
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.
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.
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.
the forums.
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.
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.
everything was turned in online, we didn't have to waste paper printing our work out and turning it in.
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.
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 think this course needs to be revamped - i learned nothing.
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.
Everything was easy to do. For assignments, I could turn it in early and start the next.
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.
That it was completely online, it was understandable and perfectly organized.
I liked that everything was available at all times for me. I didn't have to wait to go on campus. It was a very good use of technology.
I liked all the visuals, online encouragements
Mostly everything about the course.
I like that I can manage my own time and complete assignments as I want.
I loved it alot. He helped me understand alot.
N/A
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.
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 that he had everything organized on laulima, but we also talked about it in class.
I liked reading my classmates responses to different topics.
Overall, the class was decent.
Connecting with other students that were not in my class.
Took in class. Great teacher! Makes learning fun!!
i liked the teacher
Although I haven't constantly turning in the homework on time, I have learned a lot just by reading other peoples response but over all everyone is kine online!
I liked it because it gave me more flexibility.

19. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
Having the most awesomest teacher
Interesting and useful
For all the fun activities he used to explain some lessons.
The great professor!
doing forums and assignments...
How personable the teacher was! I also liked the student to student interaction.
The amount of confidence that he instilled into his students. It made me want to work harder.
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.
how fun this class was.
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.
having the most to teach me and having a very educated teacher.
Mr. Cawdery for being an awesome teacher.
The modules, and doing the reflection assignments.
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.
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 organization.
I will remember the youtube clip for week one regarding a teacher's salary.
N/A
"Nothing in this book will prepare you for your first day of teaching." I think this course is definately realistic.
The service learning i performed.
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.
Being able to take all that I learned and manage a classroom effectively
how to establish authority.
Unique lessons and examples was given in every class discussion and different techniques and perspective of how to teach students. I will keep Dr. Wong's book it is the best book ever in the course.
The fundamental things that I learned from it.
When i'm teaching and im using all his teachings on how be a great teacher.
The way it taught me how to be organized and engaging while teaching.
remembering this was the first step to my career pathway.
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".
Michael Cawdery's enthusiasm and motivation in the classroom. He is an amazing teacher!
"You guys are my favorite class. No, really"
Implementing strategies for developing routines.
the good class environment, my classmate, and my teacher!
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.
The energy our professor comes to start our day and all the group activities as well.
Mr. Cawderys awesome personality!

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.
Mr. Cawdery is very professional and not a boring instructor, he is full of enthusiasm and very understanding. I highly recommend Mr. Cawdery to other students.
I feel that I made a good choice picking my first Education class :D
i love this class.
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.
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.
Great Course, Great Teacher. Thanks!!
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.
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.
n/a
Michael Cawdery is an excellent teacher. He lets students know about him even though the course is online and develops a positive image of himself as an educator. He is a great instructor and I definitely enjoy his teaching material and strategies.
great teacher.
It's great opportunity to be in the class and I really enjoy it. I just want to give thanks to the professor for helping me understand and work hard on my assignment. I will let other students know about him. Wish him the best of everything.
I love this class!!!!
This class was very good. Michael is such an engaging teacher that listens to his student's questions and answers.
Professor Cawdery was a very understanding and helpful teacher. He knew how to keep us all on task and had the class in discussion.
I hope my other education teachers will be like him, VERY HELPFUL!!!!!!
I wish I wasn't graduating this semester because I would take more of his classes!
Overall fun class! Made learning fun because he kept us engaged and always had fun activities! Love doing hand on projects and participation rather than just sitting around taking notes.
Just one thing to suggest. Not too many emails. It was over the top.
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.
Great course!

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

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.
ALL THE HELP I GOT TO SUCCEED IN THIS COURSE
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.
Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by the interesting projects that was required, the awesome and motivating instructors.
Because Cawdery is a great mentor
All the papers we had to put together to make the portfolio.
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.
The teachers and their passion in the field and passion for teaching the students!

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

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

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

Awesome teacher, I would definitely take his class again AND recommend him to any of my friends who are pursuing education majors.
I would reccomend this course. I really enjoyed it and would highly reccomend it.
I having external difficulties during this course and am having difficulty finishing this course. I am sure that if I explained it to Michael Cawdery he would understand, but it is very difficult to do for me. nburton2
I really enjoyed taking this class.
Great Class
Excellent class
Keep on - Keeping on Mr. Cawdery! Future teachers of Hawaii need you!

I will use this course as a reference for sure in the future.
Mr. Cawdery is an AWESOME instructor. He makes sure that you understand the assignments and he's always been very supportive and encouraging towards all students. Thanks Mr. Cawdery!

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

Although I enjoyed the class just seem to be a lot of writing. Manageable but more than expected - to some degree felt like a writing intensive course.
None of the assignments completed and turned in were returned to me and other students in a timely manner. I have not gotten any of my assignments graded/returned for over 4 weeks. This is simply unacceptable. How will we know if our grade or assignments need improvement if nothing is graded in a timely manner? He teaches classroom management, but I think he needs to learn time management!
none.
Modules were too long
To many places to go for assignments, not really sure when a couple of them were due, and took to long get grades back for assignments.

Thank you for your time.
I had a good time in the class. I learned a lot of class management tips and information.
Michael Cawdery is a very knowledgable teacher, and I can see his passion to teach and I hope I myself will posses those qualities when I'm a teacher.
I was able to gain a lot of knowledge in Cawdery's class and I looked forward to coming and learning something new every class. Taking Cawdery's class has strengthen my desire to even more become a professional educator. I am glad to have the opportunity to take Michael Cawdery's class. I have to say that if there were more educators like Cawdery, there would probably be more students who would have an interest and desire to become a professional educator.
I want to be a teacher like yoouououououou Mr. [[:

Mr Cawdery is awesome!!!!
would recommend to anyone
Great teacher, great class, always great classmates, and very good course to take.
Michael Cawdery is the kind of teacher that is willing to go the extra mile to ensure that you understand the assignment. he answers your questions in a timely manner, always ensuring you that your questions are not stupid ones.He also checks up on you to see if you need further help or understanding on assignments. His love for what he does shines through in the way he works with you and how his assignments are laid out.If I do continue to take educational classes I would like to take more of his classes if they are offered. I would HIGHLY recommend him to others who are looking to be a teacher and even someone who is trying to get a feel for their field like me...loved this class!!!
none.
great teacher!
One thing that I appreciated Professor Cawdery doing throughout the semester, is encouraging his student each week, and how he keeps us informed with AAT events. Thank you Professor Cawdery.
Good class, work needs to be returned more promptly though.

14. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I love how Mr. Cawdery takes the time to find additional support in helping his students learn and succeed!
Learning about students in a inclusion class.
I liked the videos that were in the modules. They helped me get a better understanding of the subjects. I really enjoyed the research articles that were presented of some of the different programs that are available in teaching. I will definitely be using them in the future.
I like the set up of modules, it was very easy to follow.
I really was shocked with a lot of the information that was given to me for this course. I really enjoyed learning all of these new aspects about what goes on within the classrooms and how it is run with the of the students together. All of the information on special education and the disabilities that they have and how they may or may not be able to function was just awesome. I love this course so far.....
The structure of how the assignments were given and the work content.
I enjoyed the organization of the course, especially by using the modules.
15. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None at the moment!
N/A
I can't really think of anything that I didn't like.
All the reading...lol... I swear I read some sections over about 5 to 8 times. But all in all I love this course, the information just blew me all away.
The videos that were used to show the work (quick times). It didnt always work for me which made doing the work difficult at times because I had to use another computer other than my laptop.
nothing.

I really enjoyed this course. It was very interesting and I gained a lot of new knowledge that I will be using in the future.
