If you’d like to know who it is that helped write the new Oklahoma Academic Standards, take a look (and listen!) at these Podcast on Your Plan episodes produced by Josh Flores, the Director of Secondary English Language Arts with the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
Podcast On Your Plan episode 13 with Dr. Julianna Kershen and Dr. Crag Hill
This is my favorite episode to date! Dr. Julianna Kershen and Dr. Crag Hill discuss my favorite topics: how to teach growth mindset, brain-based teaching, and speaking across curriculums. They also provide one of my favorite responses to the question “what aspect of education needs to be disrupted?” Dr. Hill also discusses his experiences as a Standards Writing Team member, how you can participate in their next big research project, and exciting upcoming events for Oklahoma’s ELA teachers!
Podcast On Your Plan episode 16 with Ayn Grubb
Ayn Grubb is a dedicated Tulsa Public Schools Curriculum Coordinator and well-known AP Trainer. She is also a member of the ELA State Standards Writing Team! Her expertise and vast experience is a valuable asset to #Oklaed and our Standards Writing Team. I hope you enjoy this conversation we had about education and teaching literacy. It is peppered with various strategies and formatives for the classroom.
Podcast On Your Plan episode 4 with Brook Meiller
Our state is lucky to have education leaders like Brook Meiller! Full disclosure: Brook is a personal mentor of mine, but I can’t keep her all to myself. It just wouldn’t be right! She has so much to share and will inspire any listener, whether you’re a teacher, parent, or administrator.
ELAOK Podcast On Your Plan episode 3 with Levi Patrick
On this episode Levi and I discuss our excitement for #EngageOK and talk about the development of new standards for ELA and Math.
