Join Weston, Molly, and a bottle of wine as we use iconic teaching moments from movies and television as a vehicle to reflect on instructional practice. We invite you to laugh, agree or disagree, and work toward discovering exactly who you are and where you stand as an educator. Weston is a former high school teacher and administrator who now works as a Senior Fellow with the International Center for Leadership in Education. His work as a keynoter and instructional coach has afforded him the opportunity to learn alongside teachers and administrators from all 50 states and more than 30 countries around the world. Molly is a former elementary and middle school teacher who now works with teens and young adults in parochial education programs around Colorado. She and Weston are the parents of two elementary aged children who provide additional fodder for an ed-centric podcast. Cheers!

Tell a young person what to do - play fair, be yourself, stick to the task at hand - and most will tune you out. But show them how choices and consequences play out in the real world, with real people, and the impact will be far more effective and long lasting. Based on interviews with over 100 people from around the world and from all walks of life as they reflect on their most profound and unexpected moments of clarity about who they are and how they should treat others. The lessons help teach 23 powerful character traits that will help your child grow into the adult you'll be proud to call your own. <br> Character Traits from Parenting with a Story: ambition, open-mindedness, creativity, curiosity & learning, courage, integrity, self-reliance, grit, hard work, self-confidence, money & delayed gratification, health, positive mental attitude, dealing with loss, kindness, patience, fairness & justice, humility, respect for others, friendship, social intelligence, forgiveness & gratitude, appreciation of beauty.

Homeschool lesson plans should be imaginative and fun, so I'm going to inspire you in 5 minutes with a 'done-for-you' creative teaching idea. I’m your classical education coach, Diane Lockman, and I’m passionate about helping you become a better homeschool teacher. Now that my kids are adults, I encourage other moms and dads on the journey with simple, time-saving tips on classical lesson planning, teaching strategies, and college prep. After nearly 20 years, I’ve learned that all intellectual skills can be boiled down to teaching the child how to read, think, write, and speak. Here's to working smarter, not harder! #askdiane #homeschooling

Being an educator in the 21st century is indescribably complex. There’s a constant pressure to meet standards and help students achieve, but there’s also a need to allow learners to color outside the lines in an effort to prompt creativity. The Arizona K12 Center believes effective teaching and learning is grounded in quality teacher development and teacher leadership. To support educators along the continuum, the Center developed “3Ps in a Pod” to further dissect practice, policy, and passion in the field of education. Voiced by the organization’s Professional Learning Directors and Associate Director of Programs, Danielle Brown, Donnie Dicus, Mary Field, and Angelia Ebner, "3Ps in a Pod" will feature numerous guests with ideas, perspectives, and stories relevant to what educators do both in and out of the classroom. This is a conversation, not a lecture. Ditch your notebook, but be ready to share. There’s no need to cram for a pop quiz, but we hope you’ll pledge to be a lifelong learner.
