Stop Banning Books: Jonathan Friedman

Future Hindsight

Thursday, September 29th, 2022 Jonathan Friedman is the director of free expression and education programs at PEN America. He oversees research, advocacy, and education related to academic freedom, educational gag orders, book bans, and general free expression in schools, colleges, and universities. We discuss the driving forces behind campaigns to ban books and silence teachers. Education has always been political and a part of the culture war. We’re currently experiencing an eruption of citizen anger against schools, books, school librarians, and teachers for allegedly engaging in something dangerous. For example, anything about diversity and inclusion is labeled as critical race theory. Libraries were actually put inside schools to encourage literacy and development, civic engagement, and exploration that is very healthy for a society. Politicians are increasingly trying to label whatever they don't like in schools as something that should be censored, and there are efforts to defund or close public libraries.    Follow Jonathan on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/jonfreadom   Follow Mila on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/milaatmos   Follow Future Hindsight on Instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/futurehindsightpod/   Love Future Hindsight?

Jonathan Friedman: A Service Provider’s Perspective on Healthcare

Perspectives on Healthcare

It’s a service provider’s perspective on healthcare from Jonathan Friedman on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare Podcast with Rob Oliver. Jonathan is from Toronto Canada. He is a Millennial (Generation Y.) His specialty is child and youth counseling as well as coaching. He is the president of “The Journal That Talks Back™.” Here are 3 things that stood out as Jonathan Friedman gave us a service provider’s perspective on healthcare: · Sometimes the mental health of people with developmental disabilities can be missed because of the focus on their diagnosis. There needs to be a holistic view. · Great healthcare is affordable, accessible, and holistic. (A prime example is that psychotherapy is typically not covered or only a few sessions are covered by insurance.) · Transportation is a huge obstacle for people with disabilities when it comes to accessing the healthcare system.

The Rising Threat of Censorship with Jonathan Friedman and Christine Emeran

What's the Big Idea?

In which Dan takes a close look at the recent spread of censorship aimed at schools and libraries across the United States. Hundreds (!) of new laws have been proposed in just months that would put teachers and curriculums under the microscope, and books are being pulled from shelves. The common denominator? The ideas and books being questioned all challenge orthodox views of American society, history, and family. To begin, Dan is joined by Jonathan Friedman from PEN America to talk about gag order laws proliferating across the country (5:40). They discuss how the 1619 Project should be seen as ground zero for this latest censorship push, and then talk through the goals and consequences of the gag order laws coming out of state houses around America. Then Dan talks to Christine Emeran from the National Coalition Against Censorship about why books are coming under attack across the country (33:00). As always I welcome comments and questions on Twitter and Instagram @BigIdeaEd Mentioned in the episode:"A Tennessee school board removed the graphic novel ‘Maus,’ about the Holocaust" (CNN)"'Don't Say Gay' bill passes Florida Senate" (ABC)The 1619 Project from the NY TimesEducational Gag Orders: Legislative Restrictions on the Freedom to Read, Learn, and Teach from PEN America.

#250 Educational Gag Orders Explained with Jonathan Friedman

Teach Me, Teacher

Hello everyone! Education policy is changing. Politicians and board members are literally running on campaigns centered around what they believe should—and should not—happen in schools. Because of this, it is extremely important that we not only stay informed, but are knowledgable around laws, the history of educational movements, and why many restrictions are being pushed right now so hard. Among all of this, is the term gag order, which is detailed clearly in this episode. If you're unfamiliar with the term in education, like I was, you'll want to hear this episode. Joining me to help in unpacking this complex topic is Jonathan Friedman, the director of Free Expression and Education PEN America. In this episode, we discuss: The history of fringe involvement in educational policy The underlying politics behind content bans Analyzing precedence for today's bans by looking at the push for religious beliefs to be in public school Gag orders, what they are, and what they do How gag orders are seeking to control teacher speech around race, sex, gender, and politics Enjoy!     Teaching our children to think and reason mathematically is a challenge, not because students can’t learn to think mathematically, but because we must change our own often deeply-rooted teaching habits. This is where instructional routines come in. Their predictable design and repeatable nature support both teachers and students to develop new habits. In Teaching for Thinking, Grace Kelemanik and Amy Lucenta pick up where their first book, Routines for Reasoning, left off. They draw on their years of experience in the classroom and as instructional coaches to examine how educators can make use of routines to make three fundamental shifts in teaching practice: Focus on thinking: Shift attention away from students’ answers and toward their thinking and reasoning Step out of the middle: Shift the balance from teacher-student interactions toward student-student interactions Support productive struggle: Help students do the hard thinking work that leads to real learning With three complete new routines,  support for designing your own routine, and ideas for using routines in your professional learning as well as in your classroom teaching, Teaching for Thinking will help you build new teaching habits that will support all your students to become and see themselves as capable mathematicians.

Creating Space For the Bees: With Jonathan Friedman

The Frame of Mind Coaching™ Podcast

New year, new guests, and new stories! Welcome back to The Frame of Mind Coaching™ Podcast. And what greater way to be back than with a special guest!Today’s guest is the wonderful Jonathan Friedman. As some of you already know, he’s one of my five kids, and we’ve been working together for the last number of years. Jonathan has been a part of the FOM family (or FOMily, as he likes to put it) for a long time, and now he’s on a new journey as President of The Journal That Talks Back™, an accessible coaching platform for young professionals and post-secondary school students.Jonathan sits with me to discuss his struggle with anxiety. Right now he has a lot of things on his plate and, naturally, that causes a lot of stress. But it doesn’t end there. Jonathan describes this issue as if he has bees buzzing around in his head, and those bees are now affecting his sleep and even his relationships. And in talking, I discover that he’s not actually making any space to attend to those bees.What I mean is that we should allow ourselves some “bee time”, where we’re not neglecting the anxiety and stress, but facing it. And while there are many, many different ways to do that, the important thing is that you actually do make that time for yourself. So don’t just lock the bees away. Make time for them, and who knows, you could even be able to use them for brilliance!Join the conversation!www.frameofmindcoaching.com/the-frame-of-mind-coaching-podcastClick here to learn more about The Journal That Talks Back™:www.thejournalthattalksback.com/Read this episode’s transcript here:www.buzzsprout.com/1252997/episodes/9823465Do you have a challenge you’d like to discuss?
