As we continue our Best of Trending in Ed series through the summer, in this edition we're featuring our most downloaded episode ever where Dr. Rich Milner joins host Mike Palmer in the Summer of 2020 to talk about his book, Start Where You Are But Don't Stay There: Understanding Diversity, Opportunity Gaps, and Teaching in Today's Classrooms for which the 2nd edition had just been published. Rich is a Professor of Education at Vanderbilt University where he focuses on Teacher Education with special attention to issues of racial equity. We explore Rich's thinking about issues of diversity, opportunity gaps, and the mindsets that must be overcome to effectively engage diverse students and classrooms. While many of the themes are enormously relevant to this day, several warranted further discussion in light of the Black Lives Matter Movement and the COVID-19 pandemic which were roiling in the Summer of 2020 when this episode was recorded. We explore much of this in a riveting conversation with Rich that you won't want to miss. Rich is a leading thinker on teacher education and diversity and we very much appreciate getting time with him on for this episode. Here's to having him back to continue the conversation in the future! Subscribe to Trending in Education wherever you get your podcasts.

Dan and Caitlin, with a super special guest, Jon Chiarmonte, aka the @YouMatterGuy, discuss the importance of being genuine, authentic, and honest with our students and creating a learning environment where all students feel welcome and appreciated! Its hard to do- it often requires us to swallow our egos and be real. For a decade Jon has a run a class devoted to connecting with students on a deep level, discussing heavy and important topics that really matter- because YOU MATTER- to ensure that students have a place, and a teacher, where they know they can be appreciated, be themselves, and be engaged in real learning. Dan, Caitlin, and Jon share several personal stories, some tear jerkers, from their years of teaching and relations with students, to show that mistakes are okay, all voices and stories matter, and when we drop the pretense and allow ourselves and our students to be vulnerable, something special happens. As always, we hope this episode helps you transform your classroom and have a bigger impact in the classroom. We welcome questions and comments on our instagrams, emails, or in a review that you write us! Club dismissed :)

Teaching writing (and literacy) can sometimes be 'a bit of this and a bit of that'. Sometimes we teach in a compartmentalised way, and there is no connection between lessons.We often don't see a transfer of what we are teaching to students using the skills in their own writing.To help us with this, Dr. Brian Cambourne joins the show to talk about teaching writing effectively, building connection in literacy and shares the relevant academic research and evidence.Dr. Cambourne, associate professor, is currently a Principal Fellow at the University of Wollongong in NSW. He started his teaching career in NSW in 1956 and spent the next nine years working in a variety of small, mostly one-teacher primary schools before entering academic life. He has since become one of Australian's most eminent researchers of literacy and learning. He completed his PhD at James Cook University before becoming a post-doctoral Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education; a Fulbright Scholar; Research Fellow at the Centre for Studies in Reading at the University of Illinois and Research Fellow at the Learning Centre at Tucson.Brian's national and international scholarship has earned him many prestigious awards, including being inducted into the International Reading Association's Reading Hall of Fame, and the Outstanding Educational Achievement Award by the Australian College of Educators. In this episode, we talk about how to teach writing in more effective, inquiring, explicit and powerful ways. You'll also understand what it means to do this in connection with broader literacy approaches, with the curriculum and across the school, as well as individually.

The Democrat running for Virginia's 5th Congressional seat sends a clip of Rep Bob Good telling the Campbell County school board that he supports the idea of camera's in the classrooms to make sure that it's education not indoctrination going on in there along with his number so he can get interviewed about what an outrageous violation of the kid's privacy it is. Joe, while awaiting Rep Good's visit to the show later, discusses it with the listeners.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Cameras are used to monitor security in many schools. But what about cameras to monitor what's being taught? As Michael Pope reports, that’s become a topic of discussion in a congressional race.

The broad dissemination of information online has made students more inclined to question what they are being taught in the classroom. Many educators are thus trying to adapt their teaching strategies to ensure that new generations successfully acquire new skills and learn new knowledge. Dr Brenton Fredericks, Head of the Communication Sciences Department at Central University of Technology in South Africa, recently developed a framework that could improve communication between educators and students in the classroom, promoting more constructive and effective learning.

The earth's atmosphere is a little over 0.04% carbon dioxide, currently about 420 parts per million. That's more than it's been in millions of years and is changing our climate. But these levels of CO2 are not enough to directly affect people. However, people are sensitive to the amount of carbon dioxide they are breathing. […]

Hosts Clarin Collins and Sean Leahy talk with Leigh Wolf and Audrey Watters about the futures of educational technology, how we have come into an era where technologies are present in almost all classrooms and how that has changed teaching and learning in significant ways. Our guests chat about how we could create a more humanistic approach to existing and emerging EdTech, and how EdTech can become a roadblock for teachers. Our panelist help us unpack what EdTech really means, and define it in a broader sense than a “computerized” or “digital” tool only. They invite us to think critically about what EdTech could be in the future and how to help it become more equitable and accessible.

Language shapes so much of who we are, but not all students feel they can bring their whole selves into the classroom. Even the most well-meaning teachers can unwittingly do more harm than good. In this episode, educator Andrea Castellano answers some common questions about students who code-switch between languages and dialects and shares research-based practices that will help multilingual students flourish. ------------------- Thanks to CoderZ and Edulastic for sponsoring this episode. -------------------

Classrooms have become ground zero for the problem of political polarization. What is being taught, who is teaching it, how it’s being taught, how it is funded, etc. Are we teaching Critical Race Theory, or are we not? Should we be? If the Roe v. Wade case comes up, what is the teacher’s posture? These … Continue reading "Episode 110: Creating Laboratories for Friction with Mónica Guzmán"

After college, Kareem Farah became a high school math teacher, teaching in the traditional way that most of us experienced as students, with the instructor standing in front of the classroom and lecturing on the information that students were supposed to learn. Much to his frustration and dismay, however, he soon discovered that there were some things that were shockingly wrong about traditional teaching and learning, namely that the instructional model was largely broken and kids in his classroom were not being well-served by it. As such, Kareem, along with fellow teacher, Rob Barnett, co-founded The Modern Classrooms Project – addressing their personal Job To Be Done of “Help me to replace this broken instructional model so that I can better serve my students.” In this episode, and through the lenses of the Jobs To Be Done framework, Kareem joins The Christensen Institute's Tom Arnett to discuss the unique instructional delivery professional development model that they're building at Modern Classrooms Project, including features such as the model being opt-in only and both curriculum and grade level-agnostic, and also how it results in more student-centered classrooms, along with better outcomes for both teachers and students. The Modern Classrooms Project is a great example where the founders' own struggling moments were indeed the seeds for innovation in the K-12 classrooms where teachers have adopted the Modern Classrooms instructional model.

Classrooms should be places of growth, discovery and change, and as parents and caregivers we need to support teachers in fostering a positive environment for students. And Patrick Harris II is a teacher who knows first-hand how important that is. Patrick is one of my teaching idols, and he recently released a book about being a teacher titled “The First Five: A Love Letter to Teachers,” where he talks about what it looks like to try to make change from within and the importance of creating school communities where our kids feel safe, empowered, loved and encouraged to figure out who they are. Whether you're a teacher, parent or caregiver, this book is one you'll want to read. Patrick is a Black queer writer, storyteller, and middle school humanities teacher. He has won multiple national teaching awards for his leadership and innovation in the classroom. Teaching and creating is only part of who Patrick is. He is a big brother, a cat dad, lover of all things horror, a WWE fanatic and is obsessed with scenic hikes. In this episode, Patrick and I discuss: Why teaching is political. How we can reframe our focus away from what students want to do as a career and instead help them see who they want to be now. Tips for finding a school that fits your family's values. What parents and caregivers can do to support teachers who are trying to make change at school. Press play and I promise your appreciation for teachers and perspective on what a classroom should look like are going to change forever. Bite-Sized Black History Bite-Sized Black History is a program that empowers you to teach the little ones you love about brilliant Black Americans who have been largely overlooked by our history books.

Have you seen the organization in a kindergarten classroom? It's full of cubbies and bins. Any classroom from preschool through high school is designed to function well. The environment is organized in a way that there is a place for everything to be put away. There's a place for the books and the toys. There are stations designated for different activities. Classrooms are also set up to be age-appropriate. You won't find baby toys in the middle school classroom! The classroom environment is set up so that when the kids enter, they have the age-appropriate things they need and everything is where it is supposed to be. Your home can be set up this way too! If you are teaching the skill of organizing to someone else, you first need a picture of what done looks like. Have an orientation when you organize a space in your home. This shows your family where things are located, the rules of that area, and what it should look like when it is clean up after using that space. Next, you need a lesson plan. You have to know the right amount of work to give to your student so that they neither become bored or overwhelmed when learning how to organize. Finally, the person you're teaching needs to have a spark ignited to want to learn the skill of organization. You cannot create this spark in someone else, but once they have it, it's game on! In this episode, I help you think about what your space should look like to make it function like a classroom. I also walk you through how to teach the skill of organization to someone else. What will your first step be in making your home function like a classroom? The Productive Home Solution™ gives you all of the information and tools that you need to organize your home so that it is age-appropriate and functions well for your current life stage. It's also set up in bite-sized chunks so you can do as little or as much as you want to do at a time. Join The Productive Home Solution™ here.

Dr. Porcher & Dr. Bertrand, co-host with Chanea Wells Bond and Dr. Courtney Rose to discuss ways to engage with students in classrooms (K-12 and teacher education) after anti-Black violence and shootings. Chanea Wells Bond is an educator, a teacher and an eternal student. Her current graduate work focuses on increasing access to dual credit and advanced academic opportunities for Black and Brown students. She is an English teacher at Southwest High School in Fort Worth, Texas, whose professional work focuses on increasing access to diverse texts, affirming Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ student identities, and “being the teacher she needed.” Dr. Courtney E. Rose is a Visiting Professor in the Education Policy Studies Department at Florida International University and the Founder of the educational consulting firm, Ivy Rose Consulting.. Prior to beginning her doctoral studies, Dr. Rose taught Math & Science for three years in the Duval County Public School system in Jacksonville, FL (two years of which were completed during her commitment as a Teach for America corps member). Currently, her research and work interests include the development and implementation of innovative approaches to social justice-oriented critical and culturally relevant instructional practices and curricular designs. Her student-driven approach to teacher education and development aims to provide teachers with new tools and understandings on how to incorporate youth culture into curriculum and instruction to better engage students in academic content and facilitate discussions rooted in issues of diversity and social justice. Adopting a culturally relevant/responsive framework, Dr. Rose views curricular designs and instructional practices as powerful tools through which to construct, legitimate and impose messages about what is appropriate, intelligent, and valuable and impacting students' views. Given this, her approach to teacher education/professional development aims to help educators and administrators develop or enhance their practices to bridge students' cultural, academic and social identities and co-create more meaningful learning experiences with and for the increasingly racially, culturally, socially, linguistically diverse students and families of today's schools, which is the focus of her upcoming book set to be released in March 2023. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/black-gaze/support

The good news is researchers have established a tremendous amount about how human memory is acquired, organized, and deployed. The bad news, according to Dr. Stephen Kosslyn, is this information has pretty much stayed in technical journals and textbooks and not been applied in classrooms. Adding to the problem is that popular misconceptions about learning abound, so most of us are not learning nearly as effectively or efficiently as we could. Kosslyn, one of the world's leading researchers on the science of learning, has long been concerned by the inadequacies of our education systems. Through public-facing books, and institutions he helped create like Minerva University and Foundry College, he has dedicated much of his life to bringing what researchers understand about learning into real world practice. Tune in to this fascinating conversation with host Dr. Rishi Desai to hear how our education systems could be improved by applying active learning and by teaching critical thinking skills, among other changes.
