How Teachers Plan for the First Day of School Introductions and Expectations Ep 101

How Teachers Plan for the First Day of School Introductions and Expectations Ep 101

July 26, 2020

The first day of school is the most important for a teacher. For me, I get to establish a relationship with my students as well as letting them know who I am and what the goals of my classroom are. I spend a few minutes talking about how much I enjoy teaching, and how much I want my students to enjoy walking into my classroom. Just from this first day, you can set up a lot of your expectations about what kind of classroom environment you would like to have. Then I talked all about myself to establish our stories matter, how history is full of people's stories, how important it is to set goals, and how important it is to understand and listen to other students’ perspectives. In this video I walk you through exactly what you might style your first day lesson plan to be. You can change all the things that I did to fit your own personality and needs 

 

This is just a template and example.  Mine has more depth and historical information.

Danny Hauger Shows How His Garden Grows an Idea to Grow a Tree During a School Year Each Week Ep. 95

July 17, 2020

In this episode, Danny Hauger tours his garden. As learning grows each year, you can see the blossoming of knowledge in a classroom. Branches extend, and the fruits of study and investment begin to bloom throughout the year. There are so many parallels to gardening and teaching, that I reached out to Four Winds Growers in Watsonville, California. As a local grower to our show, with extremely reasonable prices. 

 

FourWindsGrowers.com inspired me to try a new idea in distance learning, documenting the growth of a tree as a metaphor for our knowledge of history over the school year. I ordered a Holiday Avocado tree, and I look forward to planting at the start of the 2020 school year, and showing to my class remotely. 

 

In this unusual time, I hope every teacher who is returning is staying safe with a mask or shield in the new school year. There can be an intimidating presence of some masks, so I reached out to a talented mask maker designing masks for teachers. With these awesome masks, you can look great, express yourself, and gather smiles from your students, while following provisions for safety in the classroom this fall.

Incorporating Podcast Listening and Storytelling into History Classrooms Ep. 75

Incorporating Podcast Listening and Storytelling into History Classrooms Ep. 75

July 5, 2020

Storytelling is the oldest form of preserving history. I grew up loving radio, and hearing the teller of a good story is one of the great joys in my life. I am so grateful I am living in a time of podcasting and numerous people having access to microphones and audiences. In this edition of Inspiring Teachers, I introduce some methods of incorporating podcasts into the classroom, using one example of a Social Studies classroom setting and The Moth Radio Hour. You can find this excellent podcast at TheMoth.org and I think you will enjoy it. I talk about how changing up the methods of instruction can keep the class’ interest.
