This week Pete (@mr_van_w) urges us to see our students as more than just data points and dollar signs. Then a straight white male (@jfcatto) talks at us about how to deal with teenage girls when they are being cray cray.
Pete: Are You Data-Driven? - Tonya Gilchrist
John: How to Help Teenage Girls Reframe Anxiety and Strengthen Resilience - Deborah Farmer Kris
This week Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) walk into a podcast with no preparation and manage to waffle on for 40ish minutes about a PD lecture that the school put on this week. After which a staff member was overheard saying "that was less of a waste of my life than I expected".
PD: The Learning Trajectory - Dr Jared Horvath
Welcome to 2019. Hopefully things are different here. Pete has hard a "hard reset" and John is... present. Pete (@mr_van_w) is upset by how much language effects the way we relate to each other. John (@jfcatto) argues the perhaps pedantic difference between politics and civics.
Pete: Teachers should 'see the child, not the label' - expert - Brett Henebery
