    The Hoodie Episode - 102

    In Episode 102 of The Chey and Pav Show, the Dynamic Duo reflect on a specific item of clothing that has caused so much stir among educators in the school setting - and that is the hooded sweatshirt. Hoodies on students in the classroom have been contentious for quite some time, and Chey and Pav talk about the reasons why students should be allowed to wear them in class, while also discussing the reasons why sometimes they are not.
    Chey and Pav bring many perspectives to the conversation and uncover the history of the "hoodie policy" that has existed in so many classrooms and educational spaces for so many years.

    EP99: How Are We De-Centring Remembrance Day?

    EP99: How Are We De-Centring Remembrance Day?

    In Episode 99 of The Staffroom Podcast, Chey and Pav talk about the evolution they have gone through in their teaching practice in regards to De-Centring Remembrance Day. In an effort to create an atmosphere where the students and their students are centred with their stories and lived experiences, Chey and Pav think about how they have perhaps been centring a single and dominant narrative in their early years of teaching. Combining their knowledge and understanding of Culturally Relevant and Responsive Pedagogy, they have developed a very meaningful activity that utilizes photography to create digital stories that truly highlight and exemplify the identities of the students. 

    Here are a few links to articles that we used in our research of Reframing Remembrance Day:

Best education talk

Pav and Chey are experienced educators who aren’t afraid to share the realities of the classroom. They are real, practical, honest, and funny, to boot. They understand what it takes to teach in this digital age and their love for what they do both in the classroom and with their podcast is contagious and inspiring. I highly recommend this podcast! So much to talk about, think about, and enjoy.
