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.

Podcast On Your Plan ep30 with Adam Zodrow

IMG_20160205_084222433 (1)Adam Zodrow has been actively involved in every position possible in education. I like to think of him as an educational philosopher, but he’s not just full of theories. He can unravel big ideas into practical, manageable working parts in a way few people can. I can’t wait for you to hear some of his latest big ideas and how you can get involved. Follow Adam on Twitter at Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@AdamZokc for more thought provoking conversations. Oh yeah, he’s also preparing for his next big education challenge: running for school board.

Repeated Reading

INCREASING READING FLUENCY AND COMPREHENSION

Also available via YouTube.

This PD On Your Plan module highlights another awesome Oklahoma teacher: Ms. Kathy Prosser of Jefferson Middle School!

In this module, Ms. Prosser facilitates the learning while students track their personal growth in reading fluency and comprehension. As they take turns reading a text aloud, they track their speed and mark for any mistakes or confusion while reading. Students also compose questions about the text.

As you watch, consider the following:

  1. What ideas are you having or what are your three main takeaways after watching?
  2. What reading strategies have been successful in your classroom?
  3. What strategies do you want to implement and would you modify for your classroom?

Post your responses in the comment box at the bottom of the page.
