            Joanmarie, I found myself inspired by the boldness and directness of your proposals. You have clearly internalized the core concepts of our course and connected them powerfully with your teaching practice and your commitment to shape a learning...

                  Andrew, I very much enjoyed reading your proposal. It clearly takes into account the various readings you have done for this course (and others) and integrates them with your teaching practice. They are bold and would likely make a difference to...

                              Susie, Your work all semester has been exemplary, as has your attitude. You have thrown yourself completely into the work and the community. It has been great working with you.

                                  Very nice indeed. And I love seeing how your dog was not quite sure what was happening. One thing about your code. The next step would have been to see how to repeat the patterns (hint: make your own blocks).

                                    Riley, Your reflection on this is so great. I love how you allow yourself to be uncomfortable and to move on anyway. I also really liked how you found a story to tell that was relevant to you.

                                        Paul, I really liked the connections you made to your own learning of html/Twine and that of your ELL (and maybe other students)
