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.

Curriculum Maps & Pacing Guides Community Project

noun_map_47766The following link will connect to a shared Google Drive folder allowing you to submit and view curriculum maps and pacing guides aligned to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for English Language Arts and developed by Oklahoma teachers. They are intended to serve as examples and guidance tools for districts to develop strategic plans for implementing the standards.

A curriculum map is a destination. The paths you take to get there are up to the teacher.

Curriculum maps show the terrain and points of interest to the casual traveler. There are roadways or standards to use to get there, some being more expedient than others. You can take along snacks, travel on foot, or take a train.

Where do you want to go and how do you want to get there?
