Posted in Prompts, Short Form on April 4, 2013 by Ashli


We’re on Short Form this week and I’m on the road. Thanks to the teachers who submitted their answers to this week’s prompt: what do you do during lunch? You can find the episode here, or catch it over on iTunes.

Do use that feedback link over on the right-hand side of the page to let me know what you want to hear or if there is something you would like to contribute to the podcast.

Welcome to the second episode of the podcast! We’re on Short Form this week which means there are multiple topics covered and you’ll get to hear some responses to last week’s prompt: How do you start your teaching day? You can find the episode here, or catch it over at iTunes when the feed gets picked up (hopefully sometime Thursday morning, I’m not really sure how long all this stuff takes).

Prompt Responders: @fawnpnguyen, @wahedahbug, @samjshah, @johnberray, @sarcasymptote. If you are not following these folks on twitter, I highly recommend!

Next week we’ll be back to Long Form chatting with the delightful @crstn85 of Drawing on Math. Thanks for listening!
