Please join our show hosts and special guest P. David Pearson (a faculty member in the programs in Language and Literacy and Human Development at the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley).
Our conversation will center around common core state standards (strengths and areas needing to be improved) and deep literacy:
What role does culture play in CCSS? e.g., Jerome Bruner: "Culture is to the Mind as Mind is to Culture"
What role does motivation and engagement play in subject-matter and CCSS?
Do close reading advocates understand what cognitive science has taught us, i.e., about the role prior knowledge plays in comprehension?
How well are U.S. students faring with inferential and evaluative comprehension skills?
How do we get politics out of the classroom?
Are good teachers born with high pedagogical skills or are they developed?

TheTAPI Network is starting a late-night format with uncensored, no-holds-barred, live adult chat where we discuss an array of myths and misconceptions surrounding love and the melanin community. We don't "sip tea" in here...we marinate in our subject matter and simmer with observations, opinions, and thoughts until a conscious brew begins to percolate.
Join us tonight as we discuss the art of fellatio...to choke or not to choke? Put the kids to bed and come break it down with us. Are there health benefits to swallowing? Can it decrease the amount of anger in the black community? What man doesn't appreciate the ordeal of having his partner swallow his full load of self-esteem? Why are some women disgusted beyond belief at such an act? Is this why brothers go shopping for Becky? Call in and share your thoughts as we touch on deep throat issues in the bedroom...uncensored...

A Child Protective Services (CPS) rally was held at the Arizona State Capitol Building for needed changes regarding children, teenagers and infants being taken away from their families for profit by this network. Today's show guests, Cliff and Shelley Hoelz were in attendance and will be giving a summary of the day's events.
The Hoelz's will discuss who the CPS CARE team is a recent meeting they held with this team.
Other topics to be discussed include:
What does the word "permanency" mean when used by CPS? What does the experience consist of for sons and daughters placed in CPS group homes? What are RTC's and its impact on CPS victims. What is the Young Adult Program? Is it favorable for CPS families or not? How about "behavior health issues" and CPS--how are they handled?

The I AM Group University faculty are excited to share the recording of our gratitude discussion, which originally aired on-line during the week of Thanksgiving, 2013.
Please join us as Harrison Klein, Dagny Grant, Robert DiMattia, Beth Donnelly, Douglass Feller and MarBeth Dunn share some thoughtful insights about the joy and power that can be found in gratitude.
We want to thank those who submitted questions and thoughts about gratitude as the catalyst for our conversation. Here is example of some of the questions that we will be answering:
What does gratitude actually mean?
I am grateful for everything. What is the best way to show this gratitude?
How can one have gratitude in the face of extreme hardship?
How do you be grateful for disease or lack of success?
As a mother how to I keep in gratitude when I watch my two adult children suffering from different difficulties in their bodies and life?
Is it true that you can change your situation simply by having gratitude?
