#171 Free Kids to Learn SEASON FINALE! (Jacqueline Stallworth pt.2)

Hello everyone! Welcome to part two of the season finale of Teach Me, Teacher SEASON FOUR! What!? My mind is blown. But not more blown than during my talk with the amazing Jacqueline Stallworth! If you missed part one, check it out here.

I first met Jacqueline at an AP training at Texas Christian University, and was blown away by her clear and compassionateImage
message about the literary canon and why we should free kids to read what interests them.

In this episode we discuss:

  1. Choice reading
  2. Using student culture to drive learning
  3. Getting students to write better

…and much much more!

This episode will challenge you to think critically about the bastions of English, and I hope invite you to be a part of even more talks that improve our craft and purpose in the classroom.

This episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators—and their professional book, Being the Change: Lessons and Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension by Sara K. Ahmed.

Topics such as race, gender, politics, religion, and sexuality are part of students’ lives, but sometimes it’s hard to know how to respond as teachers when these subjects come up at school. You probably have stories of your own about situations or conversations that caught you off guard or made you feel uncomfortable.

Being the Change is based on the idea that people can develop skills and habits to help them in the comprehension of social issues. Sara provides clear lessons to help teach about important social comprehension concepts.

You can create a socially minded classroom where you explore identity and diversity, build listening skills, understand and address bias, become better informed, and more… first with yourself and your peers, and then with students.

Being the Change is available as a book, ebook, and audiobook. To learn more visit Heinemann.com.
