This page has all kinds of extra things, the parts of my teaching that aren't directly part of the curriculum. I'll be writing short pieces, a bit like a blog. I'm starting with the headlines, then I'll be filling them in a bit at a time. If you'd like to subscribe to the posts, you can fill in your email right here:
I work from a popular education pedagogy, putting students at the center, and using the materials and examples that they use in their everyday lives.
These are some of the pieces I'll be writing as I can:
Flipped classroom: students at the center, guide on the side
Choosing materials: finding the best stuff
Choosing materials: whose voices are you prioritizing?
Choosing materials: keeping track of it all, building your library
Choosing materials: how much is too much?
Creating materials: getting comfortable with video
Distance learning centered on synchronous conversations
Designing interesting conversations for students
Informed consent: welcoming students BEFORE the term begins
Formative assessment in flipped classrooms
Using fidgeters to engage kinesthetic learning, and as emotional outlet for loaded conversations
Welcoming equity: The tone of your syllabus and written communications
Welcoming equity: creating community in your classroom
Welcoming equity: how to handle conversations about oppression
Welcoming equity: differentiated classroom guidelines
