Teaching Students to Disagree Productively On a cool October morning, energy buzzed in a third-grade classroom in western Massachusetts. Students sat on the rug, raising their hands and grinning from ear to ear. As I entered at the back of the room, I was struck to hear the words “I disagree!” coming from the carpet. Between Worlds: How can we harness disruptive technology to reinvent learning experience When people ask me what our best insurance is against being made irrelevant by AI, I always reply: rethink education. On this week’s show, I spoke to someone doing just that.

Taking a Modern Approach to Project-Based Learning At the onset of this pandemic, many teachers were encouraged to begin utilizing project-based learning with their now online students. As a ten-year practitioner of project-based learning, I was shocked. If you’ve never done project-based learning before, trying it out during a pandemic didn’t quite seem like the right timing. Nevertheless, the idea was out there and I was determined to find a way to make it work not only for myself, but so that I could educate others on how to do it, in the event that this virtual-hybrid crazy teaching scenario continued. From my experiences in the spring, I identified my biggest struggle was timing: students were all over the place in the project and I was constantly delivering the same mini lessons each week or finding videos online to send to my students so we could all be working on and learning different lessons at the same time. Never heard of a modern classroom?

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah: 9780399588198 “[An] unforgettable memoir.”—Parade “You’d be hard-pressed to find a comic’s origin story better than the one Trevor Noah serves up in Born a Crime. . . . [He] developed his aptitude for witty truth telling [and]…every hardscrabble memory of helping his mother scrape together money for food, gas, school fees, and rent, or barely surviving the temper of his stepfather, Abel, reveals the anxious wellsprings of the comedian’s ambition and success. If there is harvest in spite of blight, the saying goes, one does not credit the blight-but Noah does manage to wring brilliant comedy from it.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “What makes Born a Crime such a soul-nourishing pleasure, even with all its darker edges and perilous turns, is reading Noah recount in brisk, warmly conversational prose how he learned to negotiate his way through the bullying and ostracism. . . .

MindShift: High schoolers share how missing out on seminal events like prom and graduation have affected their mental state "It’s Friday, June 5th and today I graduated high school from my couch.

I have seen them sit frozen in their seat, staring at an assignment—when earlier I had heard them make jokes, talk excitedly about the content of their history class, celebrate solving a vexing algebra equation, or shake a test tube with authority, waiting for a result. Their report cards often reveal this disparity in classroom experiences: A’s and B’s in classes where they feel valued and C’s, D’s, or even F’s in classes where they don’t. Mindshift: How Culturally Relevant Teaching Can Build Relationships While Students Are Home Teachers submitted resources and lesson plans relevant to the times and students' experiences.
