    Harvey Korman's Legacy Lives on Through His Son

    Harvey Korman's Legacy Lives on Through His Son

    The Emmy and Golden Globe winner Harvey Korman was a staple on the Carol Burnett Show making America laugh in the 1960s and 1970s. During that time he was also raising a family, including his son, Christopher, who had a learning disability and speech impediment. In this episode, you will learn how Harvey Korman's legacy lives on through his son and their contributions to the special education community. Special Educators will hear about techniques Chris learned from his dad and the theater that helped him overcome his learning and speech challenges.

    After listening to the podcast, be sure to purchase a copy of Chris's book entitled, OMG! It's Harvey Korman's Son, which is a love letter to Harvey Korman's fans.

    Schedules and Lesson Plans for Moderate/Severe Classes

    Schedules and Lesson Plans for Moderate/Severe Classes

    In Part 2 of my interview with Emma Haring, we discuss schedules and lesson plans for moderate/severe classes. Emma gives some great ideas on how to write everything out so all adults and visitors know what is going on with her students who may be medically fragile in a multiple disabilities classroom. 
    She gives ideas on how to set up your schedule and remember to include everything on it. In fact, she created a freebie to help teachers out as a supplement to the podcast episode. There are sample weekly lesson plan pages. In addition, there are extra pages that explain it all...and some other goodies as well. Link to it in the Resources and Links section below.
    Emma also shares how it is important to prepare for emergencies daily at the beginning of the year. She also gives tips on other things to include in your class as well. 
    Even if you do not teach in a medically fragile or multiple disabilities class, you will get ideas you can use. And the rest will give you perspective on your coworkers who teach this population.

    Tips for Teaching Students with Multiple Disabilities

    Tips for Teaching Students with Multiple Disabilities

    In Part 1 of this two-part series, Emma Haring and I discuss tips for teaching students with Multiple Disabilities. Emma has been a teacher in this type of class (we called it a medically fragile class in our district) for many years. She has a ton of experience and wisdom that she shares generously! In Part 1 (Episode 25), she gives a lot of tips on how to discover what your students like and dislike, how to care for them as people, and how to give them a voice (even if they are nonverbal). Pre-service, new, and even veteran teachers will want to have a paper and pen nearby to take notes!
    Then be sure to join us again for Part 2 (Episode 26), which will focus more on the daily schedule and some of Emma's favorite things to teach this population. Emma has also prepared a supplement to go with the episode, which includes sample schedules and other goodies.

    #24.10 Activity 10 Prayer/Silence: Ten Ways to Relieve Stress in 1 Minute

    #24.10 Activity 10 Prayer/Silence: Ten Ways to Relieve Stress in 1 Minute

    This activity was originally a segment of Episode 24. I am publishing each one separately so you can access individual activities easier.

    It is really important to do simple but effective self-care tasks each day to relieve stress and avoid teacher burnout. The activities in this series take one minute or less. They are designed to help you stop, and refocus - for only a minute. Repeat as needed throughout your day.

    "Activity 10: Prayer/Silence" can be done alone, with your family, co-workers, or maybe even with your class.  Many special educators teach their students to breathe or count to ten as a calming strategy. We adults need to do it also!

    Try them all out, then pick out the ones that work best for you and repeat them often during the school day.

New school year feels

This podcast has calmed me down in the face of a new school year during this time. Breath of fresh air to listen to the host share tips and tricks with very concrete ways to work them into your classroom (regardless of the setting). Thank you!! Love listening

This Podcast is a Gift!

I had a professor in my teaching credential program who used to say that “all good teachers beg, borrow and steal their good ideas and resources from one another.” What I love about this podcast is that every episode is FILLED with ideas, tips and tricks that I would have never thought of, no “beg, borrow, steal” required. Lisa has so much wonderful experience to share, and she interviews some amazing teachers who are full of insight and knowledge. I seriously often have to pause episodes to write down awesome tips or ideas because each episode is so packed with goodness that I don’t want to miss or forget a thing. Brand new teachers like me and experienced teachers alike can find something in this podcast. Thank you, Lisa!
