"My eCoach® has been an invaluable tool for developing projects with other teachers. It helps us to start with the standards, consider what we want our students to learn, and stay focused throughout the process. When we are finished, we have a complete project plan to use with our students and to share with colleagues. The plan looks professional and contains links to all the needed resources."
