Teachable Moments Part 2: Teaching In and Out of the Classroom

EdSurge Podcast

It’s often said that teaching and learning doesn’t always take place in the classroom. And the same is true for educators, whose teaching philosophies can be shaped by lessons that come from being a parent or coach, traveling abroad, or advancing into a new role. That was the case for four teachers featured on episode two of our four-part series on why teachers teach.

Get Curious, Not Furious: Discipline Again & Again, and Some More.

Practically Perfect Parenting Podcast

All children misbehave—at least sometimes. You know that. You also know your particular child or children will misbehave; it might even happen every day. And you know how to use positive discipline—partly because it was covered in the two previous episodes of the Practically Perfect Parenting Podcast. Why then, when your child misbehaves, is it so easy to get mad and so difficult to be a thoughtful and positive disciplinarian? In this episode, Dr. Sara Polanchek and Dr. John Sommers-Flanagan discuss why children misbehave and how to solve obstacles to healthy discipline by . . . getting curious, not furious. To make things better still, our special expert guest, Meg Akabas, author of “52 Weeks of Parenting Wisdom,” shares her thoughts on parenting knowledge, when and how parents should give their children choices, and when parents should just tell their kids what to do. This podcast is brought to you by the National Parenting Education Network, and The Charles Engelhard Foundation.
