This Works!

The classroom management system really worked. Having students work in pairs was the best! The Basic Genius classroom management system made the questions manageable. The students got more individual attention because I had more time to visit each group.

This course eliminated so much paperwork and time I spent outside of instruction. It allowed me to focus on my students and their needs instead of constantly worrying about prepping for my next class or lesson.
