Welcome to Episode 25 Season one of The Educator's Room podcast! In this episode, Franchesca interviews, Dr. Christopher Emdin, founder of #hiphoped and #Science Genius.
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 to engage in the curriculum in meaningful ways. Dr. Christopher Emdin is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology at Teachers College. Columbia University, where he also serves as Director of Science Education at the Center for Health Equity and Urban Science Education.
During this podcast we will discuss:
- his experiences with working in inner city schools and how the philosophy has to shift to educate our students.
- how his movement of #hiphoped is empowering educators to incorporate the Hip Hop culture in their class.
- Why his book, "For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood" is also for African-American teachers.
