Episode 111: Josh Giesbrecht

Posted in Interview, Podcast on May 26, 2013 by Ashli

This conversation was kicked off after I read Josh’s blogpost Why school itself undermines the message of lifelong learning. The subtext we send students daily in class through the format of how we teach and grade is something that’s interested me since I started teaching. In Episode 111, Josh and I chat about some of our experiences and thoughts surrounding the messages we send our students and how life doesn’t go downhill after high school.

How are you working to create a shame-free environment in your math classroom that leaves space for everyone to experience their mathematics in their own way?

After a delightful lunch with Avery and Bree, today’s guest and I sat down to chat about her history in the teaching world, some thoughts on teaching middle school, and musings about the twitterverse. You can download the mp3 here.

And hello to visitors from the Math Forum! Many thanks to them for listing Tangents in their most recent newsletter. If you’ve never had a chance to check them out, I highly recommend their Problems of the Week as a place to start.
