Cory LAI 350F Henry Wong Paper After reading Henry Wong’s newspaper I’ve definitely learned a few new things as well as expanded on what I’ve already been introduced to. I think those who would most benefit from his articles are new or aspiring teachers. The articles provide helpful information that every teacher should at least know or consider before entering the classroom.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
