It's that time of year! We're back with new podcast episodes.
Emotional safety, trust, and relationships: this season, we investigate the intangible, and often overlooked, elements of academic success. You’ll hear how teacher home visits can help parents see themselves as a valued a partner in their child’s education; how far a public high school goes to develop an inclusive experience for the crucial transition to ninth grade; how parents and schools can address childhood trauma so it doesn’t become an obstacle to learning, and what parents and communities can do to help kids grow.
Join us for new episodes beginning August 28!
Listen on Google Play, Apple Podcasts, NPR One or wherever you get your podcasts.
You can also catch up on earlier episodes that are still relevant today. Hear how middle school principal Michael Essien transformed school discipline by sending counselors to the classroom to help teachers with disruptive students, keeping kids in the classroom; hear former Stanford dean of freshmen Julie Lythcott-Haims talk about how overparenting is creating "existential impotence" among young adults; and how students helped high school teacher Michael Godsey unlock a better way to read and learn English Language Arts through podcasts.
