Dyslexia: Interview with Dr. Scott Crane and Emily Gibbons

 
 

One episode with double the knowledge! In this episode about helping students with dyslexia first Dr. Scott Crane talks about what it's like to live with dyslexia.

Dr. Crane has worked in education for the last 38 years as a teacher, coach, school level administrator, district level secondary education specialist, business manager, assistant superintendent and superintendent.  He has served in three school districts. He began his career teaching and coaching in his home town of Burley, Idaho and then spent 26 year as an administrator in Blackfoot, Idaho. In Blackfoot he began his administrative career as a middle school assistant principal and ended as the district superintendent.

In 2012 Dr Crane retired from Idaho and began his second career as the Superintendent of Grand County School District in Moab, Utah. He received his Bachelors of Arts Degree from Brigham Young University and his Masters of Education, Educational Specialist and Doctorate from Idaho State University. As a child he was diagnosed with dyslexia and received special instruction to help him learn to read.

After the conversation with Dr. Crane, Emily Gibbons will discuss how teachers can strategically teach dyslexic students. Emily is the creator of The Literacy Nest. She has worked with children between the ages of 1 to 12 since 1996 in a variety of settings. Her Masters Degree in Curriculum, Instruction, and Literacy sparked her passion to create and design classroom materials. She has a thirst for knowledge and a deep desire to help struggling readers with dyslexia. She has an Orton-Gillingham certification through IMSLEC and creates resources that she sells through her Teachers Pay Teachers store to help parents and teachers ensure that every child becomes a reader.

To learn more about helping students with dyslexia, Emily suggests reading Overcoming Dyslexia by Sally Shaywitz. You can find it here. Buying the book through this affiliate link helps to support the podcast.

Dramatic Play

 
 

In today's episode we discuss the Dramatic Play center and it's benefits in the Kindergarten classroom. 

Here are 5 reasons why increasing play in the classroom increases learning:

Play Stimulates Thinking:
Play will stimulate children's minds and promote advanced intellectual development! It also is a great way for children to expand experiences through reenacting events. These reenactments allow experiences to make more sense and have more meaning, paving the way for future academic success.

Play Defines Social Roles:
Dramatic play helps children learn social roles and rules, and offers time to practice such social morays as sharing, taking turn, communicating to inform or persuade, and resolving conflicts, and cooperation.

Play Inspires Creativity and Imagination:
When children are engaged in dramatic play, they can be anyone that they want to be and can even do the impossible! This type of play encourages children to use their imagination and to be creative, as there are no limits. This creative ability will aide students throughout their lives as they become creative and learn to solve problems.

Play Builds Emotional Strength:
Young children have a hard time understanding and controlling feelings. By engaging in creative play, children can learn to manage and understand certain feelings by re-enacting episodes. Dramatic play can also enhance children's ability to empathize with other people.

Play Develops Language:
Dramatic play encourages expressive language. Children are motivated to convey their wishes to others and speak from the perspective of their pretend roles. In fact, it is often through dramatic play that shy or withdrawn children first begin to express themselves through language.

Don't have a Dramatic Play Center in your classroom? Well give you some tips and ideas to get you started!

Playworks: Interview with Chris Conard

 
 

Playworks is a leading nonprofit that brings safe and healthy play to children. One keystone element of the Playworks program is leveraging the power of play to encourage social emotional learning, which empowers kids with lifelong skills like empathy, leadership, and conflict resolution.

Chris Conard has been working with Playworks since 2007 and is continually inspired by the power of play in education. Beginning as a program coordinator in the Bay Area, he has worked his way up the Playworks ladder including such positions as the administrative associate and national expansion manager. He is excited to bring his love for Playworks to Salt Lake City and help others spread the power of play. Chris is continually motivated by the way play can be a vehicle for social change.

Becoming Brilliant: Interview with Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D

 
 

Our interview today is with Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, Ph.D, author of the book Einstein Never Used Flashcards: How Our Children Really Learn--and Why They Need to Play More and Memorize Less about the new book she has written with Roberta Michnick Golinkoff: Becoming Brilliant: What Science Tells us About Raising Successful Children. It's so inspiring to hear her vision for the future of education. Here's a sample:

"I want to suggest that teacher's make a difference every day. I meet wonderful people who are out there giving of themselves to help every child get a chance and I think teachers are just the most remarkable people. I don't believe that any of us, including teachers, can do it all and sometimes society expects us to solve every problem, to make every cure, and I think that's an unfair burden. Trust yourself... learn what we know and use it. There's a lot of science of learning that's out there for the taking so we shouldn't just do what the book told us to do on Tuesdays because it's Tuesday. Learn a little bit about what goes behind the teaching. Not just what the response ought to be; what the processes are. I'll tell you why that's so important. One day I went to a school and a little girl raised her hand because they were asking about an animal, what animal was it, and the kid got it wrong, but the kid said "tiger" instead of "cat". There was an opportunity there because "tiger" wasn't as wrong as "bear" or "snake" or "bird". If you thought about the process you could say, "Actually, a tiger's related to the feline family!" That helps the kids make connections to have stronger vocabulary. So learn what's out there. Trust yourself. Learn what's out there. Help parents understand that you're their best advocate and amid all the constraints that are out there, and, gosh, I know there are many. Try, at least, beyond those constraints to add you. To add a love of learning, a little bit of playful learning, in that classroom."

Trust yourself... learn what we know and use it.

Bullying: Interview with Tomas Jungert, Ph.D.

 
 

In a study from Lund University, Sweden, Dr. Tomas Jungert has shown that warm and caring student-teacher relationships can be linked to students' motivation to intervene in cases of bullying.

The results from Tomas Jungert’s study showed a connection between warm student-teacher relationships and the internal motivation of students to defend victims of bullying.

“It could be a relationship where the teacher tries to be empathetic and get along with the student, rather than to issue threats of punishment”, says Tomas Jungert.

There was, on the other hand, a link between conflicted teacher-student relationships and the students’ external motivation to help victims of bullying but, as it turns out, it is the internal, not the external, motivation that becomes significant in the defence of bullied students. Students driven by an external motivation, on the contrary, are more inclined to remain passive bystanders or even side with the bully when witnessing an act of bullying.

“Those who are driven by external motivation want to receive praise and perhaps increase their status within the group. In a situation of victimisation found in many schools, it is very plausible to assume that many students find it less risky and more profitable to associate with the bully, which is often a person with a lot of power”, says Tomas Jungert.
— Lund University

We had the opportunity to talk to Dr. Jungert about the study and it's possible implications for educators. We believe in developing positive relationships with our students and encouraging internal motivation in them, and we think you'll enjoy hearing about research that supports how important this is!

Giving children free choice time allows them the freedom to fulfill their own needs in a way that recognizes their individuality, desires, and interests. Mom shows how allotting this time of unstructured play builds children's academic, social, and emotional ability. We hope you will all find time for free choice in your classroom!

Elections: Interview with Mary Parry

 
 

As we gear up for election season, we are fortunate to be able to interview Mary Parry about her debut children's book Sadie McGrady Runs For President, which follows Sadie McGrady on her fictional journey from regular kid to President of the United States, as she explores what it’s like to run a campaign and become a world leader. Will she win on Election Day? And if she does, will she have what it takes to be a good president? 

Mary is a writer and mother of three with a passion for including more women in politics and leadership. She grew up in Missouri, went to college in Texas, and now lives in North Carolina, where she has been busy dedicating her career to advocating for women and girls. Mary served as a women’s vote director during the 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns in North Carolina, providing education about women’s issues and encouraging women to vote. She was the Director of Advocacy for Women AdvaNCe, working to engage more women in the political process in North Carolina.

Through her work — and her own daughter who sought a way in to civic engagement -- Mary has seen  kids with passion and ambition for creating change.  She has come to believe that leadership can be experienced and nurtured from a very young age, and she wrote Sadie McGrady Runs for President to help parents and daughters become empowered and to become women who lead.  She hopes her writing can inspire kids to take their own goals and ideas seriously and to set their goals for leadership roles, whatever path in life they choose.

Sadie McGrady Runs For President is available for preorder at Amazon, Inkshares, and Barnes and Noble.

You might also consider adding our Election Thematic Unit to your curriculum this year. Your subtends will love learning about Mr. President while practicing academic skills that are strategically linked to standards.
