In a couple of weeks, Season Three of Best Practices in Education Podcast releases. Last season, we were lucky enough to report on teacher experiences in the pandemic in real time, both at the administrative level and with faculty. Favorite episodes included topics like "Experiential Learning" and "Creating Connection in the Classroom." I don't have any data to support my conclusions, so feel free to disregard, but the stats show that teachers are hungry for practices and strategies that build real, in-person connection, an experience which so many of us struggled with throughout 2020 and into the first half of 2021.
I'll be hosting again. And we're lucky to have the incredible River Guerguerian, audio and real-life wizard, making sure we sound good again this year. This season, we're hoping to have more deep conversations with teachers about what makes them come alive, both in and out of the classroom, in addition to a few spotlights on teaching anti-racism and dismantling white supremacy. So plug in while you are doing the dishes or driving your kids to work. We'll do our best to delight and inspire.
If you haven't listened before, try it now on Apple podcasts and most other listening platforms. I've linked the last episode of Season Two below, a description of how to teach a Life Cycle Project in the high school science classroom.
