HERITAGE UNIVERSITY SUMMER INSTITUTE – SEATTLE

* This class was a big “aha!” for me. I finally fully understand culturally-responsive teaching!!  Yeah!

*DIVERSITY is a strength! It’s one thing I will never forget!

* Well-organized course with a variety of effective activities.

* I liked the discussions, PowerPoints, videos, articles, projects, group discussions, reflecting – all the hand-on activities.

* I became better aware of my own personal bias and how change begins within me.

* Before class began, I did not have a clear vision of what culturally responsive teaching was.  Now, at the end, I feel very confident about what it is and how to incorporate it into my teaching!  Thank you!

* I learned a lot about culture in the classroom, including examples of how I can do it myself.

* The instructor did a fantastic modeling job on how it should look and feel in the classroom.

* I loved the organization of the course, our interviews, our field studies, and sharing in small groups!

* The instructor’s method of instruction encouraged me to invest emotionally and deeply in a very personal topic (culture) which I have not done in a long time.

* I LOVED the cooperative get-up-and-move activities!  It was a really nice change from sitting and listening to lecturing for hour after hour.

* I had a lot of fun and I felt that I was viewed as an individual.

* Randie was refreshing.

* Clear objectives. Clear expectations. Amazing teacher. Thank you.

* Wonderful stories that related to the topics at hand! I enjoyed the meaningful assignments that we did.

* Dr. Gottlieb has a very gentle, respectful way of teaching.

* Great class! Thanks for being a model for how I will conduct staff development.
