The warm and inclusive, Michael Leali, talks about the danger of gendering books, how we miss out on the now when we try to “make up” for lost learning time due to the pandemic, and how readers rise to challenges.
It’s homework time. The versatile and curious, Kate Messner, will be joining us on our next episode. Kate’s written so many wonderful books, it’s impossible to think about assigning only one. On the podcast we talk about History Smashers, The Next President, and Breakout. But, if you’re only going to read one title, the book that’s most fitting for this podcast is 59 Reasons to Write: Mini-Lessons, Prompts, and Inspiration for Teachers.
Take a page out of GrapeApes' book and write a review of this show. Here's what GrapeApes' wrote on Apple Podcasts about Chalk + Ink, "I love this podcast and have gleaned so many helpful, inspiring tips and resources for both my writing and my classroom. My time spent listening is always richly rewarded; I can only listen to about one episode per week, because it takes me time to process and digest all the wonderful wisdom in each one! Kate Narita is such an accessible and insightful host, and her warm, enthusiastic rapport elicits the best techniques and tidbits from her diverse guests. Teacher-writers and writer-teachers, this is your podcast!” Please write a review on Apple or Spotify or wherever you listen to your podcasts and help me spread the word so more listeners will discover these interviews.
Finally, I want to give a shout out to Sarah Brannen for Chalk + Ink’s podcast art and congratulate her again on her Sibert Honor for Summertime Sleepers.
