WEDNESDAY'S SHOWS (October 21st):
  • 10:00 AM - The Connected Classroom - Educators Unmuted. "Join us for a lively discussion about the things that are most important to you right now as we continue to work our way through 19 and re-define education going forward. If you are a concerned educator, parent, or student, please join in as the mics are always open in the Connected Classroom and we want to hear from you."

  • 7:15 PM - ECEL - Episode 13: "Behavioral Challenges in the Classroom that Lead to Teacher Overwhelm" "Rachel Freeman of Safe Space Teaching is an educator that teaches with the heart. Having experience in both the inclusive and self-contained environment, she understands what students AND teachers experience day in and day out. I was drawn to her blog about empathy. Rachel states, 'For students affected by trauma, regardless of age, it can be extremely difficult to push past feelings of self-deprecation to reach those happy moments. In turn, they can struggle with empathizing with peers because their emotional processes have been disrupted. Students may truly not have natural empathy due to past traumas. Do we want these students to care about others? Of course we do! Yet, that’s not our first priority. So, how exactly do teachers support these students in building up to learning how to empathize with others? We teach self-compassion. By breaking down the feelings, language, and concepts of being kind to OURSELVES first, we have a better chance of transferring these skills.'"

THURSDAY'S SHOW (October 22nd):
  • 4:00 PM - REINVENTING.SCHOOL with host Howard Blumenthal. This week's topic: "COVID-19 Without the Politics." Don't miss the recording of last week's show, "Education Decisions at the State Level," looking at the world of school from a different point-of-view. Often, when asked about key classroom and school decisions, people at the local level (teachers, principals, school districts) look to state government. And so, last week, we were joined by Randy Spaulding, Executive Director of the Washington State Board of Education; and Sydnee Dickson, Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

See you "online!"
