In this episode, the honest and humorous, Erin Dealey, talks about how picture books are like theater, finding moments of magic in students' writing, and following our dreams.
In preparation for our next episode with Jeff Anderson and Whitney La Rocca, check out POPcast: A Patterns of Power Podcast. All of the episodes are fantastic, but it will take you less than forty minutes to listen to these two episodes: “Patterns of Power: Invitation to Notice,” and “Stepping Through a Patterns of Wonder Lesson: Part One.” I can’t wait to talk with Jeff and Whitney on Chalk + Ink!
