When's the last time your students got to write creatively? Or craft a piece of fiction that was entirely their own?Today on the podcast we have something a little different. Tom Newkirk's latest book, Writing Unbound: How Fiction Transforms Student Writing, is all about the power of fiction. Tom believes that it's what inspires writers and motivates them to improve their craft. But over the years, fiction has fallen to the wayside in many classrooms.Tom set out to create Writing Unbound to show just how important fiction is and offer educators a roadmap to integrating it back into their teaching.To inform his thinking, Tom conducted 40 in-depth interviews with students and teachers around the country to learn about how they make space for fiction in their classrooms. In this episode, you'll hear pieces of those interviews with commentary from Tom that illustrates just how broad, expansive, and exciting fiction can be.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Is high school math failing students? The way math is taught today hasn't changed much over the years. But along criticism for being being out-of-date it perpetuates inequity by limiting opportunities for many students. There are expectations for high school math to do a better job in preparing students for life in the 21st century.Major shifts in course organization, mathematical content, pedagogy, and assessment are long overdue. To initiate those changes, authors Steve Leinwand and Eric Milou have written Invigorating High School Math: Practical Guidance for Long-Overdue Transformation.This conversation originally aired as a Facebook Live on the Heinemann Facebook page.

Mike Palmer returns to get a sense of where we are heading into the 4th Quarter of 2021. In the midst of the Fall Semester in 3K, PreK, K12, and Higher Ed, where are we at? What's new and emerging in lifelong learning and workforce learning and talent? And where are we heading? We cover all of this with Mike moderating a panel of Virtual CoHosts featuring our returning champion, Nancy, covering new media and emerging technology along with two new guest contributors, Malcolm on 3K through K12 and Ruth on Higher Ed and Workforce Learning and Talent. We cover all the bases to help catch you up on the state of play in the worlds of learning in late 2021. Nancy begins with a quick breakdown of the Apple and Google events in recent days that showcased some of the new smart phone, smart home, and AirPod tech that they're working on. Then Malcolm and Mike discuss early childhood education and Universal 3K before going deep on the pandemic and the sentiments, hopes, and fears among students, educators and families midway through the Fall. Ruth then joins the conversation to share interesting research from Holon IQ on strategic disruptions in higher ed before wrapping up with a quick lightning round among the panelists. Mike also takes time to talk about our sister podcast Running It Back where we're looking for lessons learned from Kyrie, the Vaccine, and the NBA before concluding this whirlwind ride through new and emerging learning trends as we begin to think about 2022.
