SUMMER BLAST #5 – What Do We Want Students to Learn? with Marie Morris

Hello everyone and welcome to Teach Me, Teacher’s SUMMER BLAST of inspiration! I cannot express how excited, pumped, and inspired I am right now for next year, and I want you to join me and my AMAZING guests in our quest to bring some positivity into the teaching world.

Today I have brought on one of my favorite high school English teachers, Marie Morris, otherwise known as @thecaffinatedclass on Instagram, to discuss everything ENGLISH, but more importantly, what is it that we want students to learn?

Just like the previous time Marie came on the podcast, we had a plan in place for the talk, and then quickly scrapped in favor of a genuine discussion on curriculum, resources for teachers, and teaching in the covid era.

All of this and MORE on this fantastic episode.

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
