Earlier this year, I expanded my free podcast series in response to COVID-19 school closures, to include parent and guardian focused content. As an educator, parent, and grandparent, I recognized the unique challenge parents were facing and wanted to give them tools and ideas to help them support their children’s learning at home.
Continuing down this path, I decided to create another series to assist teachers with challenges inside the classroom and with distance learning. I am excited to be working to deliver ideas, tips, and strategies that teachers can utilize the very next day!
All of my podcasts are free. The following is a sampling of the first two teacher-focused podcasts. Please note that many of my other podcasts are applicable to teachers and instructional coaches who may want to forward to staff.
- Students Cause Student Achievement – It’s “what students do” that generates the learning outcomes and standards mastery that we as teachers set out to accomplish. In this episode, I explore how identifying the student learning production behaviors that generate the desired learning outcomes, focus a teacher or PLC’s approach to planning instruction.
- Teachers Encouraging Parent/Student Learning Activities – In this podcast, I am joined by Arin Casavant, a science teacher at Bismark Public Schools in North Dakota, to explore how teachers can create parent support in order to maximize student learning during school closures.
I am excited to continue to produce my podcasts for teachers, parents, instructional coaches, and teacher and administrative leaders. If there are any topics you’d like me to feature or people that you know who would be a great interview, please email me! I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas!
