  • Three (3) Book Reviews - Choose 3 books from the recommended reading list.  Write a 1-2 page review for each of the three books that you have read.  If you complete your book reviews prior to the beginning of the course, please submit them to our office by email, fax, or mail.

· Give a brief overview of the information covered in each book

· Discuss how the ideas and philosophy expressed in the book compare with your own

· Explain how the information has affected you and will influence your teaching

The first three certification requirements will be completed within class time.

Participants may send their book reviews and curriculum outline to our office via email, fax, or mail after taking the course.

After completion of the course, any remaining requirements should be submitted for review within 60 days of the final course date.  If you are unable to meet the 60-day deadline, please call our office to discuss an extension.

Failure to finish all requirements in the given timeframe without an extension will require you to retake the entire course at full registration cost to become certified.
