It's the last official episode of 2020! As I mention in this episode and the last, I'm taking a break from producing the podcast, and I'll be back in January 2021.
On this episode, I'm chatting with Jocelyne Vogt about teaching Harold Cardinal's essay "A Canadian What the Hell It's All About" in her high school English Language Arts classes in the Francophone school system in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan.
Our conversation includes: how curricular requirements and standards (e.g. text lists) inform teaching; how to prepare high school students for university; and why citation matters. Plus, a podcast fave: the connections between teaching, reading, and activism.
The podcast music is by Dyalla Swain, whose work you can find here. The podcast graphics are by @muskrathands.
