A great resource fueled, hands on PD!!
Some extremely thoughtful & innovative ways to teach drama were explored. Thank you for your assistance.
Fantastic. I was engaged all day. The content was perfect for the “middle school” year groups I teach.
So many resources, hands on activities – so important to be able to do so can teach! Ron is a fabulous presenter – so much knowledge and experience. I learnt so much today – loved it!
Rich in resources and experience. Very useful activities/experiences.
More than expected. Great group. Great presenter. Feeling inspired!!
Thank you so much, such and engaging course. The amount of resources are invaluable. I feel inspired to go ahead and teach with confidence.
The practical application of this course was outstanding. I’ve never been to a PD where I’ve left with so many things to put in my “Toolbox.” This course was absolute value for money. It would have cost me a fortune to buy the resources and days to resource for what I got in my pack.
Covered many topics and provided excellent models/examples and exercises. Great with sharing resources also!
All workshops were engaging and useful. The resources given are detailed and easy to understand.
The course was very practical and provided me with strategies as well as resources to support for use in the classroom.
Covered everything in booklet - good range of practical/discussion time. Ron knew content. He was very thorough.
It is so good to get a whole toolkit of practical activities that I can use with my students. Ron was also very generous with sharing resources.
Excellent activities. Ron was extremely friendly and explained workshops thoroughly. Amazed by his booklet. It is such a great resource! More than I have ever received by a TTA course. Emailed us with more! I liked how he encourage us to share. So helpful.
Fantastic course! Ron was very knowledgeable and generous with sharing his resources! It’s given me a lot to think about how to change and improve my programs.
