Improving the transfer experience for students is a high priority for a lot of institutions, and nationally making transfer better is a huge conversation. In this episode, we hear from a faculty member from the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Lauren Schudde, who has conducted research on the transfer process from a 2-year institution to a 4-year institution. In a lively discussion that ranges from systemic inequality to transfer articulations to football weekends, we hear some recommendations for registrars offices and others across institutions about ways to guide transfer students through the process.   Key Takeaways:Transfer students need easy access to publicly accessible (and student-focused) transfer guides that help them determine how the transferability and applicability of their earned credits will advance them toward the goal of earning a bachelor's degree.  Registrar's offices are often responsible for significant parts of a holistic transfer guide: the coding of the degree audit, and the production of the institution's Catalog. Incorporating accurate, up-to-date requirements and policies in a transfer guide is critical for transfer students who might be researching potential transfer destinations.True change with regards to improving the transfer process will need to be a comprehensive adjustment of people's understanding about their responsibilities, the role they play in the process for their institution and in support of transfer students, and may require policy/legislative remedies. Transfer is a huge topic and to better address all of the various topics relating to transfer, AACRAO will be launching a brand new podcast this fall called The Transfer Tea, hosted by Loida Utley.

About our Guest: Steve Mittwede, PhD, EdSDr. Mittwede is privileged to be a teacher of Earth Science at Randolph School in Huntsville (Rocket City!), Alabama, after having taught at two great classical schools in Texas for the past seven years. Heartily committed to lifelong learning, his most recent degree was an EdS in Educational Leadership from Columbia International University (CIU), following degrees in geology from The College of William and Mary (BS) and the University of South Carolina (MS and PhD), the last two while concurrently working as a full-time mineral resources geologist for the South Carolina Geological Survey.  During that time in South Carolina, he married Dana, and they were blessed with four sons in close succession – all now grown, married, and raising their own broods (13 grandchildren and counting!). Steve also has an MA in intercultural studies from CIU and an MTh in theology from Union School of Theology/University of South Wales (UK).

As an expert in the classroom, Steve brings practical ideas for teachers to consider for good, truth-driven instruction. He discusses in detail how to help students use good language (grammar mode of the trivium) to help them in habits of attending and defining their observations. We also discuss the truth pursuits around the unity of knowledge and how important this is to the foundation of integerated instruction.

How should science text books be used? What are best practices in the art of teaching science?

In this episode, we talk with Michelle Cravens who offers her perspective as an educator with many years of experience within different contexts and age levels. At the beginning of the podcast, Cravens shares how an early job at an Animal Shelter had a profound impact on her. At the shelter she cared for animals who had been abandoned and abused.  She learned to nurture them and at times hold them tight as they left the pain of this world behind.  She worked beside Class-D felons who had overwhelming compassion for the animals and an incomparable work ethic. This experience greatly influenced her as she continued to pursue a career in education. She has served as a middle school English/Language Arts teacher, an elementary school counselor, and a Bridge Program teacher in an alternative high school program. Michelle currently is a Middle School Counselor where she works as part of the Instructional Leadership Team in a CSI labeled school with one of the most diverse populations of middle school students in the state of Kentucky.  In her school, 40% of the students are Multiple Language Learners, 56% are considered minority populations, and about 20% qualify for special education.  Close to 80% of the student population fall into a lower socioeconomic status.

The Science of Reading is undergirded by theories of how students learn to read and comprehend text. The theory most often cited is Scarborough's Reading Rope as conceived by Dr. Hollis S. Scarborough. Dr. Scarborough believed that the elements of Word Recognition and the elements of Language Comprehension all weave together into the rope of Reading Comprehension. Just like a true rope, the more strands present and the stronger each strand is, the stronger the rope is. It is surmised that if a student is weaker in one strand, the strength of the other strands can still help the student comprehend what she is reading.In this new podcast series on the Science of Reading - What Every EdLeader Should Know, Dr. Rob Jackson, host of the EdLeader podcast, has one goal, to peel apart the individual strands of reading comprehension and build our shared understanding of what EdLeaders need to know about learning to read.So metaphorically, we grab Scarborough's reading rope and separate the strands of Word Recognition and Language Comprehension. Within the Language Comprehension strands, we find the strand of literacy knowledge.Literacy Knowledge encapsulates the understanding and mastery of print concepts, such as a book's layout. This includes everything from pre-reading skills like turning pages from right to left, reading words on a page from left to right, and top-to-bottom. It also includes more advanced skills like understanding the text features of a nonfiction book like an index, table of contents, and list of exhibits in order to efficiently find information. It also includes concepts like genre and the author's purpose.Join Dr. Jackson as he attempts to peel apart the individual strands of reading comprehension and build our shared understanding of what EdLeaders need to know about learning to read.Show notes are available at: www.drrobjackson.com@Dr_Rob_Jackson@EdLeaderPod

The National Education Association stated that 55% of America's educators are considering leaving the profession (in Texas it is 70%!). Teachers experience less support from parents, must deal with political rhetoric, potential gun violence, diminishing respect and inferior pay. Watch Florida. It is the canary in the coal mine. As one Florida teacher said of the new state curriculum: “There was this Christian Nationalism philosophy that was just baked into everything that was there.” School teachers and school boards used to focus on educating children, drafting lesson plans, designing curriculum, working with large classroom sizes and dwindling budgets, and maintaining school classrooms and districts. In addition, they now contend with political ideology, gun violence, religion, book banning, taxpayer funded charter schools, dwindling respect, non-commensurate pay, and their peers quitting the profession and leaving those who stay with more to do. As one high school teacher said about what is happening: “It is the biggest attack on freedom in a classroom that I have ever seen.” Interview Guest (picture attached): Dr. Deneen Guss was elected and sworn in as the Monterey County Superintendent of Schools in January 2019 for her first term and will begin her second term of office in January 2023.

Chris Hadfield, a Canadian astronaut describes leadership this way, “Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others' success, and then standing back and letting them shine.”That quote really seems to capture the heart of Coast Guard Captain Jennifer Stockwell, Sector Commander of Coast Guard Sector Virginia. There are not many stakes higher than a person's life when their boat has capsized or consequences any more intense than when preparing for the impact of a hurricane. Yet, the groundwork she puts in place helps to ensure that the team she leads is ready to respond in those big stressful moments. Captain Jennifer Stockwell's Command Philosophy is titled, "People first, the rest will follow." She joins Dr. Jackson to discuss how her beliefs about leadership and the role of leadership transcend the organization and is applicable to all leaders, including EdLeaders.

“I've seen way too many kids stressed at school, do something bad and think they were bad, it can stop today. Let's start building up our kids. I'll show you how, even when they do the worst thing or act in a horrible way.” ~ Dr. Karin Jakubowski Dr. J, as her students call her, is my guest for this episode. She's a highly accomplished educator and is helping teachers and parents understand what's really driving “bad” behavior in our kids. I never wanted to be the mom of “that kid” but I am. I'm the mom who has the kid that struggles in school, has gotten into fights, been rude to teachers, sent to the principal's office, and more. I used to feel so ashamed and helpless. What I have come to embrace is that school isn't a measure of our kids' worth or intelligence. Sometimes school just isn't the right environment for learning. Karin brings a fresh perspective in solving behavior that's seen as difficult by connecting before correcting behavior. She has seen transformations in behavior by simply connecting, listening, probing a little deeper, giving empathy and finding solutions. To watch us on Youtube, subscribe to my channel, Parenting for Connection: https://www.youtube.com/c/ParentingforConnection In this episode, we talk about how to talk to your kids when they have “bad” behavior, why behavior is never actually “bad”, and how to talk to teachers about your child and their behavior when it's in question or becoming a “problem (to be solved!)”. For an excerpt from Karin's “Family Happiness Journal”, you can download it from the Parent Toolbox. www.parent-toolbox.com About Karin Jakubowski Dr. Jakubowski is a well-respected international influencer on helping kids live happier, healthier lives. With a doctorate in Educational Leadership, and nearly 20 years of experience in education as a teacher, assistant principal and principal, she is highly regarded as an educational game-changer. As an empowerment coach, she provides a framework for parents who feel helpless when their child is experiencing challenging problems at school or home to experience the happy life they always dreamed of having through utilizing her revolutionary problem-solving approach.

You can make it stronger - intentional and transparent - Voluntary - making it voluntary is having empathy. - listening, aggressive, pursuing. - One of your problems - you look too busy. - I was working; I was being accessible. - Who are you closest to in your school. - Even if my idea is the best, it's not the best if nobody is on board. - Breakfast with Tom - agenda is yours. - Empathetic Conversations - extension of this notion that I really want to get to know people as people, not just teachers. - I know you as a student, I want to know you as a student - Leadership is about relationship. - Teacher observations - school principals should use them as a way to build trust and observations. - Educators are underpaid. - Herzberg's theory of motivation - Teaching is far too siloed - If people can just read one part of the book, what is it?
