Welcome to Episode 1 Season two of The Educator's Room podcast! In this episode, Franchesca interviews, Colette Bennett, Literacy Teacher Extraordinaire and proponent of choice in reading.
This year we are going around the world to talk to educators who are doing awesome things- just like you. Starting the school year is always tough for teachers as we try to balance what the pacing guide says and what we know our kids need.
During this podcast we will discuss:
- strategies to encourage teachers to allow students to have a choice in what they read for class.
- possible roadblocks for teachers and students in choosing books for their readings.
- strategies to encourage independent reading in the classroom.
- advice for administrators to understand the shift in practices with independent reading and choice in reading selection.
