This class was tough.
The professor was very encouraging and explained articles, assignments, and class discussion prompts very well. The class was very fun and enjoyable. The professor was always available when students had questions about either the work or their grades. As a student, I felt like I was being well prepared about what to expect when I become an educator.
The highlights of this course were the guest speakers that were brought to the class (there were 3). As a class, we were also taken to the arts museum on the UTSA campus and it was wonderful. We read a book about poetry from a five year old in class as well, and from that book stemmed a lot of classroom discussions. It was a very entertaining class. I learned how to not only approach a child who may be having a hard time with writing, but also how to approach the parents and offer them suggestions of how to help their child at home.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course, you need to be at every class, and you must take notes. Every test questions comes from in-class discussions or parts of books assigned to us. You must be committed and willing to put time into reading, doing your part in projects, and coming up with your own ideas.
