  1. I am interested in the online course MOOC I will be taking it but I was wondering if my elementary teachers would benefit too. or is it for 7-12 teachers?


    1. Hi Rose,

      With more than 500 teachers in the class, we will try to have something for everyone. There will be opportunities for your to dialogue with similar grade level teachers on the discussion boards and many of our video resources will tagged elementary, middle and high. It is hard to be all things to all people, but we are trying.
