for teachers

I loved this course, it was a lot more involved in developing a foundation, of emotional intelligence and self efficacy for teachers than I expected.

It's a good intro to why SEL is really important for teachers Dewey promotes racial disenfranchisement and I didn't like that we ended promoting his believes.

rather than

However, the scans could have been made a little bit more reader-friendly by cropping them to individual pages rather than double-page spreads.

The course was too theoretical, based on long reading passages bordering on literature rather than scientific essays based on research or actual findings.

I really enjoyed thinking about my teaching experience and as myself as a person in contact with others rather than just someone who stands in front of a class.

The videos are incredible and made me think a lot about different ways of teaching as well as why is it so important to connect with students or people in general and no just teach them something and leave.

It is very useful for teachers once it makes them aware of the importance of dealing with their own emotions to better connect with their students and help them develop a love of learning.
