Student Work Syllabus Schedule Pictures Links

With this class we are trying a new format in which students and instructor will meet for three weekends, one in each of the months of August, September and October.  This format is being used to meet the scheduling needs of busy students who want to become elementary and middle school teachers.

The schedule is flexible and the activities and lessons may change to meet the needs of the students and instructor.
