Frequently Asked Question:

Can I take this class during a summer/vacation break?

Yes! It is true that the classes are best taken when you are currently teaching a classroom of live young people. However, that is not always possible and you can substitute other experiences to base your work on.

For this class:

    1. You can use past experiences in the classroom to respond to the assignments.
    2. You can create hypothetical scenarios based on your experiences.
    3. You can approach the task in terms of making plans for the coming year or your next session.
    4. You can use a friend's class.

If you have another idea, run it by us!
