Podcast On Your Plan ep 44 with Dr. Gregg Garn

Dr Dean Gregg GarnDr. Gregg Garn is the Dean of the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at the University of Oklahoma. Podcasting with Dr. Garn was a big deal for me. I look up to him and consider him an ideal education leader. I hope you enjoy this episode and reflect on your strengths as an education leader as well.

Dr. Garn can be found on Twitter at twitter mini@DeanGarn.

Also in this episode, I relay some bad news about a lost interview from the 2016 iPadpalooza conference. It happened! I have visual proof (see below), just not audio. Anyways, it crushes me but you should still check out the infamous Justin Bell at twitter mini@jabellpepper and his website jabellpepper.weebly.com unless you hate awesome things. Then you’ll want to avoid Justin at all cost.

Podcast On Your Plan ep42 with Gage Jeter

Gage JeterFINALLY! Gage Jeter + Coffee + Podcast = one of the top 5 episodes! Gage has a growing fan club, and that keeps him busy. I’m so glad we had time to have coffee and chat between PD sessions. We cover teaching middles schoolers, college students, and organizing professional development that’s meaningful. Gage also shares some of his personal care strategies (e.g., morning journaling) and discusses what needs to be disrupted in education.

Portrait of a College- and Career-Ready Student | English Language Arts

Independent reading and writing is a natural outgrowth of strong standards implementation through a rigorous curriculum. The order of the standards is meant to suggest that students learn to read and write by speaking and listening on their way to the ultimate goal of becoming independent, critical readers and writers.

Standard 8 addresses the integrated nature of English language arts and acknowledges students’ need to grow increasingly independent for college and career readiness. Being able to work independently and seek out opportunities to read and write are significant aspects of life-long learning. These skills easily transfer to test taking, civic engagement, and citizen participation.
