    109 S7 E5 "Diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance.”

    109 S7 E5 "Diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance.”

    DEI feels like it’s becoming the (a) third rail in K-12 education. The quote in the title is from Verna Myers, VP of inclusion strategy at Netflix, and is included in Ruchika Tulshyan’s book Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work. In this episode, Jenn and I have a real and practical conversation with Ruchika about what you can do personally and as an organization to help everyone feel like they belong.

    108 S7 E4 We've had something wrong in education – it's not the GPA or the test scores.

    108 S7 E4 We've had something wrong in education – it's not the GPA or the test scores.

    Many of us as educators have assumed that the kids with strong grades and strong test scores were set up for success. Isn't that what we were supposed to work toward in schools?
    Dr. Borba has interviewed scores of students and has found that these 2 areas – grades and test scores  –  are not the markers of success today in the 21st century. Instead, as educators, leaders, and parents we should be focusing on 7 character strengths: self-confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism.
    Dr. Borba is an educational psychologist, author, and parenting expert. She has written over 20 books and has worked with everyone from Harvard to Sesame Street – mostly about the power of character skills and character education.
    Dr. Borba’s work has profound implications for us in the field of education right now.
     Listen to Dr. Borba share how these seven are what truly contribute to our students' well-being and how we can all foster these important skills.

    107 S7 E3 Find and Tap Your Hidden Potential

    107 S7 E3 Find and Tap Your Hidden Potential

    Everyone has hidden potential for growth and achievement, but standard approaches to studying, practicing, coaching, and organizing education often leave this potential untapped. The practices of high-achieving individuals (and a high-achieving school system) reveal the surprising skills, scaffolds,and systems that unlock potential. Even better, anyone can learn them, and anyone can teach them, too.
    In this episode we have a great conversation about Adam Grant’s book Hidden Potential: The Science of Achieving Greater Things and how to apply his insights to our own lives as busy educators.

    106 S7 E2 Educators of color are leaving schools: What can leaders do differently to support them to stay?

    106 S7 E2 Educators of color are leaving schools: What can leaders do differently to support them to stay?

    In this conversation between Dr. Andrea Terrero Gabbadon and Jenn, we talked about the reasons educators of color are leaving: working conditions and leadership behaviors. The good news is that school and district leaders can actually do something about this, and Dr. Gabbadon walks you through how. She shares 6 principles, backed by research, that will help you create the types of inclusive schools where educators of color will want to work and will thrive. Educators of color benefit all students in our schools and it's time to look at the changes we can make in the culture, school practices, and frankly our own leadership behaviors that can make a real difference now in supporting and retaining teachers of color.
