1) New podcast series on mentoring beginning teachers
New podcast series We are excited to kick off a new podcast series focusing on mentoring new teachers. In our first episode, Stenhouse author Shawna Coppola talks to Laura, a kindergarten teacher, in her first year of teaching. Recorded in October, they discuss "fitting it all in"—particularly with regard to literacy—and how to maintain a daily schedule for Laura's students that's meaningful, engaging, and developmentally appropriate.

Listen on the Stenhouse Blog and stay tuned for more soon:
