    26. How to Ask Students to Ask Questions (Why are my students so silent?!?)

    Why are my students so silent and what can I do about it?!? How can we invite students to ask questions in ways that actually encourages them to think and inquire about topics they're curious about or need clarification on?

    25. Student Freedom and Getting Outside!

    There is so much value in giving students the freedom to explore interesting questions and problems that they're passionate about. How do we do that during remote and hybrid instruction and how to we tamp down our own desires as teachers to have control of the situation. Plus, the value of getting outside and how students can learn while being outside in healthy environments.

    23. Incrementalism vs. Rescue Teaching with Adriana Lopez

    23. Incrementalism vs. Rescue Teaching with Adriana Lopez

    We tend to glorify the concept of Rescue teaching or Hero teaching, influencing students through a sudden spectacular action, however learning and growth happen slowly and in small steps through prolonged effort and practice by the students and teacher. Biology and ELD teacher Adriana Lopez talks about the power of Incrementalism in teaching and how to constantly improve student learning by focusing on student improvement, especially during challenging pandemic conditions.

    22. Lessons from Remote Instruction with Rosa Herrera

    22. Lessons from Remote Instruction with Rosa Herrera

    After 3 months of teaching remotely, what have we learned about what works and what doesn't? Physics and Chemistry teacher Rosa Herrera hops on again to talk about a few of the possible remote learning options and which elements work best for student engagement and learning. We also talk about how to balance in person and remote learning for a hybrid model (or pre-recorded/independent learning and videochat synchronous learning if we're stuck being all remote).

    21. Do Student Personalities or the Systemic Structures Matter More? with Rosa Herrera

    21. Do Student Personalities or the Systemic Structures Matter More? with Rosa Herrera

    The Seed and Soil model has been used to explain why cancer spreads or doesn't in metastasis as well as why species are invasive or not in ecology. Adapting this model to education looks at how much students' internal characteristics (the seed) matters in relation to how much impact the educational system and teacher actions (the soil) have on student success. Physics and Chemistry Teacher Rosa Herrera discusses her own experience as a first generation student and teacher and how her personal characteristics have combined with systemic structures. We also talk about institutional racism and what we can do on an individual level to fight against it.
