How many times have you picked your child up from school or the bus stop and asked “How was your day?” only to be met with “good” or “fine”. Then you follow up with “What did you do today?” only to, once again, be met with a vague answer like “nothing”. Why do kids do that? Why are they reluctant to talk to us about their day even though, as parents, we want to hear and talk about their experiences? In episode 6, Amy Van Hoose and 2nd grade teachers Kate Knolhoff and Emily Lovelace share questioning strategies to help get your kids to open up and what to do with the information they give you.
Mike Wielgus & Adam Geisen host their first “After The Bell Rings Podcast” in Episode 5 as they explore all things technology at Triad. They discuss their roles as instructional technology coaches, devices that students and teachers use, and introduce two segments that they will highlight in each “techy” episode called “Take Home Tech” & “Techy Teacher Time”.
