Participant Comment:

"This course has helped me to have a more clear idea of how to organize ideas and principles into an orderly fashion and then put them into lessons. I've gotten great creative tools like the charts, maps, outlines, lesson plan sheets. I also receive a lot of encouragement and inspiration."
