It is a wonderful learning environment for grade levels to take the course together, several home school educators, parents, or an individual  teacher needing continuing education credit.  Grab a buddy or two and sign up!

All class members  learn from each other as they work through the course. Come away armed with the expertise and confidence to teach explicit phonics, reading, writing, and spelling to any age student. Perfect for those teachers working with ESOL students.
