I had CBS come to interview my class in January. After taking your course, I quickly applied the knowledge I learned and connected to a website called "60 Second Recap" which is similar to an electronic Cliff Notes for English teachers. Jenny, the entrepreneur of this site, built a rapport with me and worked together with my students. We filmed my class doing their own sixty second recap of a novel. Jenny was looking for more PR and had CBS interview her. Jenny liked how my class was working the new technology and had CBS come right to my classroom. The program has just been edited and will be aired soon. How exciting it that? Thank you for your encouragement and ability to coach an old teacher like me into working with new strategies with my students."
