Former participant C.B. has the following comment regarding McQuality Education Services online workshops/book studies:
"The online book studies offered by Rod are easy, useful, and worth the time. With having a newborn at home, I was able to work on my own schedule to complete these courses. Not only are they convenient for anyone's schedule, but they are also useful. I know, as a teacher, many workshops that we sit through we come out with the idea that we gained some interesting bits of information but how am I going to use it in my classroom. The two book studies that I did involving books by Rick Wormeli gave me ideas and tips that I could easily incorporate into a Middle School Classroom. I will keep these books and the information and thoughts I received from other class members to put to good use in the classroom. Such a great opportunity for me to achieve my CPDU credits and gain valuable, useful knowledge for the Middle School classroom. Thanks to Rod for making that possible through his online book studies!"
CPDU's available for Illinois participants. McQuality Education Services is a registered Professional Development Provider by the Illinois State Board of Education.
What does Rick Wormeli have to say about McQuality Education Services online studies?
"With increasingly diverse students and public accountability for effective teaching, it’s more important than ever that teachers and administrators wrestle with the big ideas of education and find practical solutions for today’s instructional challenges. This happens only with effective and interactive professional training, such as what Rod offers in these on-line courses. Each of my books tackles some of the most important issues we face today: grading fairly, meeting the needs of the students without feeling overwhelmed, engage students meaningfully, and living up to the promise of schools should achieve. With Rod’s thoughtful facilitation of this material, participants gain the insight and constructive responses they need in order to have a successful year. I look forward to joining you in those journeys." – Rick Wormeli"
