As the start of the new school year approaches, here is this week’s podcast on how one enthusiastic teacher spent his summer preparing curriculum and new teaching strategies to start the 2018-2019 school year on the right foot. Brian Page, a Passionate (that's with a capital P) NGPF Fellow, teaches at Reading High School in Ohio and this marks his third appearance on the NGPF Podcast.
He shares how he both led and attended professional development sessions this summer that modeled engaging instructional strategies and used feedback to capture teacher thinking. He discusses the countless hours he spent revamping his curriculum. What key changes did he make? He is allowing for more student choice as well as building in more immediate feedback for students who take his assessments. Finally, Brian discusses the importance of timeliness when it comes to delivering content on financial aid to high school seniors. He wants them to have the opportunity to take a critical look at student loans and created an activity so they could experience the consequences of over borrowing. Brian will inspire energize you. He believes that HE has one of the best jobs collaborating with other bright and high achieving education leaders. We think that WE do! Enjoy!
