We Discuss Small Learning Communities On My Latest BAM! Radio Show

slc

Oops, there appears to be a technical issue with the show and it’s not accessible, but I’m sure BAM! will fix it right away – FIXED NOW!

How Small Learning Communities Create Powerful Climates for Academic Success is the topic of my latest BAM! Radio Show. My guests are the principal at the school where I teach (we’re divided into six “SLC’s”), Ted Appel, and educator ReLeah Cosette-Lent.

They both, and others, have contributed a written commentary on the topic, which will be covered in one of my future Education Week Teacher columns.

I’m adding the show to The Best Resources For Learning About Small Learning Communities.
