Hello, and welcome to Episode 72 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.
This week on the show I am joined by Dave Burgess, the author of Teach Like a Pirate and owner of Dave Burgess Consulting and Publishing. Truly, does he need more introduction?
Dave and I talk about becoming THE Dave Burgess, teaching like a pirate, the over-emphasis on standardized test scores, balancing accountability and autonomy of teachers, the power of social media and sharing your story, the inequalities of curriculum in “high-need” schools compared to other schools, ways to improve homework for our students, the three kinds of passion, how to and why you should read wide and live wide, and how great coaches and great teachers are related.
So, sit back and enjoy Episode 72 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Dave Burgess.
Dave, thank you so much for taking the time away from your very busy schedule to talk to me for this episode. I love your energy and I hope my audience did as well.
