Upcoming Broadcasts

Many educators feel caught between mandates to meet literacy standards and a desire to respond to individual students' interests, skills, and challenges. Teaching Outside the Box but Inside the Standards: Making Room for Dialogue illustrates how a dialogical approach to practice will enable teachers to meet the needs of today's diverse student population within a standardized curriculum. Join us for conversation with the authors and editors who will talk with each other and us about how they respond to the productive and restrictive tensions of this practice and suggest ways for teachers and schools to implement these ideas, especially for complementing and expanding the Common Core State Standards.
