Episode Notes

In this introductory episode, Phil and Sharon Callen introduce themselves and give you a taste of what the show is all about - giving tools and techniques to really help teachers in their classrooms (and they work for all students). 

Phil and Sharon also touch some key questions that teachers are asking, including: 

How do we get all students to be engaged in literacy? How do we know the tools we choose are working? How do we create an entry point for each and every student? How do we become a thinker, rather than a deliverer of programs? How do I maintain an engaging and rigorous literacy classroom?

Phil and Sharon also talk about building trusted mentors or professional associations, developing timeless principles, and becoming a professional - an authentic teacher who owns their own teaching. 

And, some practical points to finish -

 1. Sharon's recommended book
