    Recently as Dr. Rob Jackson dove headfirst into attempting to understand The Science of Reading, he found himself immersed in The Reading Wars with Whole Language or Balanced Literacy on one side and The Science of Reading on the other.  Determined to push through the spirited debates and simply get to what EdLeaders need to know to support the teaching of literacy.This latest episode in the Science of Reading series focuses on background knowledge, a crucial strand of Language Comprehension.  Once a reader has decoded the print into words, reading comprehension requires inferences that are built on background knowledge and not necessarily explicitly stated in the text. As the writers at BrainTrust define it, “Background knowledge is everything a child already knows about a topic prior to engaging in the lesson or activity. So for reading, background knowledge refers to all of the information and understanding that students already have that will help them gain deep meaning from whatever text they are reading.”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

    This bonus episode is all about how entrepreneurship fits in the classroom. I'm excited to have Austin Brooks the Executive Director at Midland Institute for Entrepreneurship which heads up the CEO creating entrepreneurial opportunities program. Ten years ago, Austin was the “kid who sparked the CEO movement” when he interviewed business leader Jack Schultz. Now he's pairing community learning with Project Based Learning to create connectors and entrepreneurs beginning at the High School level. I love being an entrepreneur, and I love coaching entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship connects the natural problem solving pieces and brings in problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, strategy, empathy, and many more valuable skills. Austin and I dive into what CEO is all about and how it has helped jump-start the career and competence of learners. Austin shares some incredible stories, including how one student's project made $500,000 in the first year.Episode Highlights: [08:37] Austin shares how he began entrepreneurship at a young age by mowing lawns.[11:16] CEO is a capstone program for juniors and seniors to develop entrepreneurial skills. [13:58] Students in the CEO program get to go behind the scenes at local businesses and see how they work. [14:59] Community learning is paired with Project Based Learning, so that the students can learn to be connectors. The community partner aspect is really leveraged.[17:37] Adam Walters was in the CEO program. He overcame a lack of soft skills to talk to developers and create a Roblox Ghost Simulator. He ended up making half a million dollars. [21:33] We should not underestimate our expectations of our student learners. Interacting with community partners and mentors removes the ceiling of just being in the classroom.[28:22] Austin is the “kid who sparked the CEO movement”. All he needed was permission to connect and then he set up a meeting with business owner, Jack Schultz. This was the beginning of the CEO program, making students great communicators and connectors. [31:59] It's also a goal to help students become accountable and take ownership of their decisions whether they succeed or fail.[32:33] Students who go through the proven framework also become lifelong learners.Resources & Links Related to this EpisodeWhat is PBL?Ask RyanMagnify Learning YouTubeProject Based Learning Stories and Structures: Wins, Fails, and Where to StartMagnify LearningRyan Steuer Twitter @ryansteuerCommunity Partner ResourcesAustin Brooks LinkedInAustin Brooks InstagramMidland Institute for Entrepreneurship CEO programAdam Walters - Ghost Simulator - Edwardsville CEO AlumniStolls Woodworking Amelia Rodriguez Designer Video

Lost in the vitriol over phonics instruction was the respect given to or denied to fluency as a metric to pay attention to.At a basic level, fluency is a reader's ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. If comprehending what they read is the goal, children must be able to read fluently. This is true in reading aloud and in reading silently. In many ways, fluency is the bridge between word recognition and reading comprehension. 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.www.drrobjackson.com@Dr_Rob_Jackson@EdLeaderPod

    Is hate being taught to our children in the public, and some private schools? A couple months ago my cousin brought to my attention a book that his 8th grade daughter had been assigned for a book review in her NW Iowa school. I was familiar with some of the toxicity that Ibram X. Kendi had been spreading, but I was not aware that his material was being used in our public school system, much less that it was being taught to 8th graders, and even younger. "Stamped" Racism, Antiracism and YouThis was not a book I had read, and I admittedly did not want to spend the money on it, but I didn't feel it would be right if I discussed it on my show without doing so. In the beginning, authors Ibram X Kendi and Jason Reynolds define in their terms, segregationists, assimilationists, and antiracists. For the remainder of the book, they use their version of revisionist history to attribute every perceived disparity and/or racial inequity since the beginning of time to "white privilege", segregationist whites, weak black assimilationists, or just the evils of white racism. To discuss this book, that again was assigned to my cousin's 8th grade daughter in a public school in NW Iowa, I invited to the conversation Yael Levin of No Left Turn in Education, Tony Kinnett of The Chalkboard Review, Moshe Levy (volunteer with FAIR) and author of a recently published article on "Stamped for Kids" on FAIR's Substack, and my cousin Chad.Nobody's life has ever been made better by convincing them they are a victim, and books such as "STAMPED" is nothing more than propaganda that is used to create a perpetual victim class in the name of diversity, equity and inclusion. This type of material, when used as learning material for young impressionable minds, drives a solid wedge of division and confusion into a space that should be focusing on unity and civility. Do not miss this conversation!What have you done today to make your life a better life? What have you done today to make the world a better place? The world is a better place if we are better people, and that begins with each of us leading a better life.

    公号: 【璐璐的英文小酒馆】 查音频节目文稿,了解广阔的世界。跟随我们的脚步,体会英语的温度。Hi, everyone. And welcome back to America Under the Microscope. 欢迎回来《闲话美国》。Hi, James. Hi, Lulu, hi everyone. Every time I'll start the episode by asking you what we're gonna talk about today, but instead of doing that, I would like to propose a specific topic. I see. Go ahead. Have you been following the latest heated discussion about textbooks? The problem with Chinese text books on social media. Ah, I have seen posts about it, but I haven't really been following that news. So a lot of people are getting really angry about the problems with these text books. I thought it would be quite interesting to talk about text books that you guys use in United States. That's a very good topic. Let's do it. First things first, in China, our textbooks, especially for K12, so for primary education and secondary education, they are generally approved by the Ministry of Education, 是由教育部这边要审核和认可的。 And then how the curriculum as well, 整个课程计划, what about in the States? I'm guessing, from based on what we were talking about before in other episodes, each State will have their own rules. That is a very good guess and you are correct, in America, it's a lot more complicated than here in China. Don't you have Department of Education? Don't they have a say like more of a generalized control over this? OK, so we do have a Department of Education at the Federal level, but in America, the Department of Education does not set curriculum and does not choose or write the text books that the schools use. The Department of Education sets the education policy, such as who can go to school like don't discriminate against your students, things like this; and making sure that the schools are credited, and are safe and suitable for students. But the material, the curriculum is all done at the local State level. I see, so Department of Education is very much about macro policy, 更多是宏观的一些政策, very vague, very general. That's right. And then what does State do?The State Departments of Education, they are the ones who really control what is taught in the classroom. So the State Education Departments, they're the ones that set such curriculum and choose the standards which the teachers need to be teaching in the classroom. Additionally, they also approve the text books that are to be used in school. Okay, you know in China, we would say at this grade you should be, for example, you should recognize, let's say 3,000 Chinese characters at this age or at this grade, you should be able to do geometry, so that sort of thing is set by the States. Yeah, governments uhhhThose are what we'd call the standards. I see. I have a question though, because each State will have this much power over how kids are taught, what kind of contents are taught in school, then the difference between states can be significant, right, technically some states can set a very low standard for the students for the kids?Now there are some nationwide standards that the States can choose to use. Some people may be familiar with the term Common Core. What is Common Core?This is a standard for English Language Arts and Math that has been adopted in many States across the country as part of their school standards; and Common Core states things like by this Grade students will be able to analyze text and write a descriptive essay, by this Grade, they can know this kind of math formula and things like that it's a standard, but States can choose their own. Common Core听起来有点像我们统一的教学大纲。But you also said they're about English Language Arts and Math. 公号: 【璐璐的英文小酒馆】 查音频节目文稿,了解广阔的世界。跟随我们的脚步,体会英语的温度。

    "Your brain has a capacity for learning that is virtually limitless, which makes every human a potential genius." Michael J. Gelb    Watch this interview on YouTube here https://youtu.be/xP3lTXlwcPQ On this episode you will learn: ✔︎ How did Rich Carr (radio and communications) go from working with Paul Allen (Microsoft Co-founder) to working with Dr. Kieran O'Mahony in the field of neuroscience? ✔︎ What's Missing with the Behaviorist Method (rewards/punishment) that's used in our schools and workplaces? ✔︎ What is the Brain-centric Design and how can it be used to accelerate results in ANY industry? ✔︎ What should we all know about our brains to demystify them? ✔︎ What should we all know about learning and the brain? ✔︎ What do YOU have in common with Jeff Bezos? ✔︎ How can YOU get involved with Dr. Kieran O'Mahony and Rich Carr with Brain-centric Design?   Welcome back to the Neuroscience Meets Social and Emotional Learning Podcast, EPISODE #220! For returning guests, welcome back, and for those who are new here, I'm Andrea Samadi, author, and educator, with a passion for learning, understanding difficult concepts, and breaking them down so that we can all use and apply the most current research to improve our productivity and results in our schools, sports environments, and modern workplaces. My goal with this podcast to make the research applicable for all of us to use-whether we have a background in science, or not. On today's episode #220, we have Rich Carr and Dr. Kieran O'Mahony whose pedagogic model, Brain-centric Design[i], is enjoying rapid acceptance in schools and businesses with high praise from different sectors including  Nike executives who say that upon implementing these ideas, “their learners (athletes) not only understood their positions better, but also reached their goals faster” (Brain-centric Design, Praise, Michele Jordan, Fortune 100 Learning Director) from the Department of Defense, noted that “this process invites us to lean in and become interactive with our learning, enabling us to grasp topics quickly and most importantly with vastly greater retention.” (Ken Robinson, Department of Defense) The feedback from those in the classroom who have begun implementing these ideas follow suit, saying “Brain-Centric Design took the guesswork out of the classroom and highlighted the scientific reasons behind the success” (Ellen Thompson, Fortune 100 Learning and Quality Specialist) who highlighted how great it felt to “identify the positive traits of cognitive flexibility, social—emotional engagement and adaptive expertise” that she already possessed. Rich and Kieran's model explains that while behaviorist pedagogy might sound like the best way for students to learn in the classroom, or for employees to be motivated in the workplace, that there's a more effective way to learn with the brain in mind, and this is exactly why we cover the most current neuroscience research on this podcast. Who knew that learning the most current research in neuroscience would be so important to the world? I certainly didn't when launching this idea just under 3 years ago this month, but it's clear with the number of downloads we receive all over the world (in 168 countries now) that this is an important and timely topic for us all to pay attention to. As we are now moving into Season 8 of the podcast, with a focus on Brain Health and Well-Being as it relates to learning, Richard Carr and Kieran O'Mahony's Brain-centric Design fits right in as they focus on the training and certification of Communicators, Coaches, and Educators to form a deep understanding in the pedagogy of their program: Brain-centric Design: The Surprising Neuroscience Behind Learning with Deep Understanding[ii]. Because their framework is aligned with how the brain processes information, and how people's brain loves to learn, (especially something new) its inherent design places any learning space in a psychologically safe framework.  They will show us how great things can happen when your brain is free of the behaviorist constructs of rewards and punishment that we have all seen in our public schooling, and corporate workplaces. Let's meet Rich Carr, and Kieran O'Mahony of Brain-Centric Design, and take a close look at why the behaviorist model that many of us have been use it using because it works, is out-dated, as they show us there is a better way to learn in our schools and classrooms of the future. Welcome Rich Carr and Kieran O'Mahony, thank you for reaching out to me and sharing your learning model with all of us today. INTRO Q: Just a quick glance at all of the praise of your work in the beginning of your book, Brain-centric Design: The Surprising Neuroscience Behind Learning With Deep Understanding I couldn't help but notice the one written by Alan Breeze, Washington State Prison, Inmate #797180 who said that “there must be a way for headheads like myself to learn that does not include years of solitary confinement” and that if he had found your method, that instead of a testimonial from inmate #797180, it could have been written by Master Chief Brazee, US Navy. How did you both come to discover your method? Q1: We can clearly see that our K-12 Educational System needs transformation and how far we are behind other countries like Finland and Japan (who tune into this podcast) and Ireland where Kieran mentioned his journey began, we are currently in the TOP 20 in this country.[iii]  You mention that one reason is that our K12 system is built on the rewards/punishment system. Where did this Behavioralist Method[iv] go wrong? What are we missing when it comes to learning and deep understanding?[v] 1B: Why do some people seem to thrive in this system-or seem to be resilient enough to not be impacted by this system (dandelion vs orchid) and how is this data evident in the Nations Report Card? (NAEP). 1C: The example of in your video of the young girl who was given candy as a reward for completing her math sheet just broke my heart listening to it as I still see this happening with my youngest daughter. I don't know why candy is given as a reward!  Can you explain why rewards and punishment aren't helpful in the learning space? 1D: How does this rewards/punishment system carry into the workplace to prevent employees from reaching their potential? Kieran's answer blew me away here, as I came from the system of commission sales, where employees were rewarded with money if they could hit their sales goals, and punished if they missed them. We know that people in this space can be fired on a dime, which works against how our brain works. Can you explain why the rewards/punishment system limits us in the workplace? Q2: In chapter 1.1 of your book, Learning is Connecting the Dots, you say, “to learn you need neurons” and “to teach you need to know how neurons work.” Isn't it mind-boggling that no one asks us right through our educational system, anything about our brain and how it relates to learning? I know that this is changing as more schools are learning how the brain relates to learning (the science of reading) etc, but where do you think we are now and what else needs to happen before learning and brain are more widely accepted in our schools and workplaces? I've got to say that I loved Kieran's answer where he talked about learning about telomeres and mitochondria (that are both important structures in the cell that help us especially as we are growing older) but what he was learning was written by neuroscientists in complex terms. How are you translating these concepts into useful concepts and making them useful in the public domain for teachers, parents and even students to use in their lives? Q3: What should we all know about our brain to demystify it? PART 1 of the book. Q4: What should we all know about learning and the brain? PART 2 of the book? Q5: Why is challenge so important with learning and what does Rich's daughter and Jeff Bezos have in common? PART 4 of the book. Kieran's take on this made me think back to the many influencers in my life who I'll always be grateful for but ultimately it was my brain that made I used in every decision-making process. Q6: How can BcD be applied in different industries? (Schools/Sports/Workplaces)? Q7: Why is BcD Revolutionary and something we should all pay attention to? Q8: Is there anything important that I have missed? For people to learn more about you, what's the best way? What is the call to action at the end? Contact you? www.braincentricdesign.com  Thank you very much for sharing BcD with us. You have created a system that is revolutionary, and has the ability to impact change in our schools and workplaces.  CONNECT WITH RICH CARR: rc@braincentricdesign.com https://braincentricdesign.com/ https://twitter.com/BrainCentric https://www.linkedin.com/in/carrknowledge/ https://www.youtube.com/c/RichCarrknowledge REFERENCES: [i] https://braincentricdesign.com/ [ii] Brain-centric Design: The Surprising Neuroscience Behind Learning with Deep Understanding by Rich Carr and Dr. Kieran O'Mahony https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SRC6BSM/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1 [iii] Ireland Apple How-To Charts https://chartable.com/charts/itunes/ie-how-to-podcasts [iv] Brain-centric Design Chapter 3.2 Behaviorism is Outdated May 20, 2020 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dc0jWUZKqS8 [v] This is the one critical piece we are missing when it comes to learning and deep understanding.

After a recap of the season's final game, JJ and Dr. Jackson share a special story from courtside of another memorable NCAA National Tournament, one that did end with a National Championship.  Coach K's final leadership tenets are explored as he reminds us to "Stop the Success Express once in a while to enjoy the journey."
