COURSE REFLECTION
This course has been a true learning experience for me.  I have enjoyed reading the peer evaluations and exploring alternative ways to teach language arts and literature.  Teachers have a hard job today because there are so many distracting factors to take students' minds off of learning.  Learning to develop secondary ways to convey certain messages to students helped open my eyes to the plight of today's educators.  

Reading the comments and suggestions from my group members helped develop my abilities as a writer a bit more.  The comments and suggestions made me take a critical look at what I wrote and improve it based on the audience for which it was intended.  

Overall, I would say that nothing about the course should be changed.  Of course, as new technology emerges, you must cater your assignments to encompass these changes.  I especially liked creating the web based assignment.  Students use technology more and more in their daily functions and incorporating computers into a lesson can only be beneficial to teachers.

I can say that if I had any second thoughts about teaching, after taking this course (and English 32, also with Dan), I am definitely excited about teaching.  If there is one thing I have learned from my classmates and Dan, it is to treat each student as an individual, you will get better results that way!
