From Molly Merendino, Masters of Science in Teaching Exceptional Adolescents, Fordham University; Special Education Teacher: Bayonne Board of Education, NJ, and Paper Mill Playhouse:
"This online course is an excellent resource for teachers of students with Special Needs--and indeed, all teachers. The creative drama lesson plans are a joy to visualize how applicable, educational, and fun they will be in the classroom. Additionally, for me, as a visual artist and art teacher, a number of the chapters can be used as an aid in teaching art classes. In particular, the inclusion of Emotional Intelligence (EQ), as well as the Theory Of Multiple Intelligences clearly describe the way we as artists approach our craft. Understanding the complexity of how we learn helps me guide students to find new paths to creativity and expression in their artwork."
