TheatreCast #38: Double, Double Toil and Trouble-Deliberation Over the Demise of Lady Macbeth with Kevin Brookhouser
Join Nick Cusumano and Danielle Filas as they welcomes Google Certified Teacher and English Teacher Kevin Brookhouser. Kevin and Danielle debate over the demise of Lady Macbeth; Did she commit suicide or did Macbeth kill her? Kevin also shares strategies for teaching students Shakespeare, his screencast video on iambic pentameter, and his 20% project grmr.me.
John Spencer always engages me when I talk with him. He speaks in metaphor and with a measured air, really thinking about what he’s going to say before he says it. I got to ask John about his views on technology, how he’s adapted with it, and how he pushes students to use it in new ways. His goal: live well. What does that mean? How do we get students to not only live well, but think better? We’ll discuss it in this episode.
The holidays are right around the corner and the iDig Video team presents their annual wish list for Tech Gifts! We’ve looked at techie reviews and come up with our own dream list for what we’d like to receive (and give!) for the holidays. While there are a few high ticket items, we found some very affordable and innovative ideas for presents. Some items on the list have been around for a while, but they’ve proven to be reliable and highly desirable in terms of their performance records. Happy Holidays to all our listeners.
I once read the most insidious force in the universe is gossip. A similar sentiment has been expressed many places though its original attribution has eluded my research efforts. But the who and when of its origins are not the things that matter. What matters, at least to me, is the realization it brought to me about culture and climate of a school community.
In this episode, Sam (@samuelstecher) and Mark (@mc_bossy) discuss how school breaks and vacations effect students and teachers. While there is an excitement and an energy in the air, it sometimes gets in the way of expectations and behaviors. This episode tackles how to deal with these changes and still have fun and learn in the process.
