    Walking the Line: How Do We Teach Subjects Where Community Values and Beliefs Conflict With Facts?

    How should we respond when the facts we are responsible for teaching conflict with community values and beliefs? It's a fine line that teachers increasingly need to walk as we balance what's in the best interest of students with what's required to keep our jobs.

Veteran LA Teacher ,

Insightful even for veteran teachers

I’ve been teaching language arts for 31 years, and these podcast are part of my personal professional development. I listen during my two hours at the gym (Brain Rules: We learn better when we are moving). Some new ideas and some old ideas that are articulated in new ways make these podcasts invaluable for my growth as a professional educator.
