On Chemistry and Physics
Currently I am listening to chemistry teaching, it is awesome. I am very very grateful. I am doing my credential in chemistry and this teaching program will be of big help to me.
Your program is terrific! It has assisted many students.
I love these videos and they are very helpful to my students who are hospitalized.
On Fast Forward and Chemistry and Physics:
Just wanted to thank you. I am a big fan of the website. I use the Teachable Moments as a hook activity as well as the Chemistry/Physics videos to reinforce the concepts.
I am very impressed with your Salsa shows. My kids enjoy them and learn from them.
I teach Kindergarten and first grade Spanish to children from all over the U.S. stationed here with their parents at a US Army Base...your program "Salsa" is a great compliment (to) my program. Salsa is age and developmentally appropriate for my students. My students understand the language and concepts taught in your program. They love your program Salsa!
