Great podcast

Very informative. Well organized. Not like some pedantic academics. Effective communication, their students are lucky to have them.
Thank you!

Back to school

As a mother of a young child and a non-traditional student going back to school for a second career, I love this podcast. It has helped me as a mother and as a student myself.

Impressed Parent

I love this podcast!!! As a parent of young children, I am so glad I found the LS site and podcast. Now I know the importance of teaching children how to learn and best retain information. It's also made me change my approach to teaching them at home (e.g., teaching a little bit of phonics every day instead of in a large block on the weekend; asking them spaced, verbal "quiz" questions a day, 5 days, even two weeks after say reading a book on polar bears (my kids are 2 and 5)). I'd love to hear more content on how parents can help their kids learn after school employing these techniques. I'm also an attorney. I find these tips helpful when I need to learn a new law that I have to advise on. I'd love to hear more about using these techniques in a professional context.
