Episode 002 of the Redesigning for Deeper Learning podcast is now available. Lori and I redesigned an elementary school writing lesson that aims to help students learn about natural disasters.

Redesigning for Deeper Learning is a podcast in which we redesign lessons and units for deeper learning LIVE. Our goal is to model how we can start shifting our day-to-day instruction toward student agency, voice, and choice; critical thinking, problem solving, and depth of understanding; more real-world authentic work; and rich technology infusion. We believe that this might be the first podcast that actually redesigns lessons ON AIR.

After our first four episodes we are inviting teachers, coaches, and other instructional leaders to bring us lessons or units and redesign them with us on the show! If you are a classroom educator, coach, or curriculum designer, please use our guest sign-up form or contact one of the hosts if you are interested in joining us. We promise to treat you kindly and look forward to brainstorming some learning shifts with you!

Episodes are available at redesigningfordeeperlearning.org and on all major podcast platforms. Thanks for listening, and please let us know what suggestions you have for improvement. We want this to be useful to folks!
