Welcome to the first episode of Teachers Passing Notes: Gen-Z Media’s first podcast created for educators! Hosted by teachers Donnie Piercey and Alisa Cooper de Uribe, this is a show where we talk about all things education: from creative teaching strategies to deeper discussions about important topics.
John Arthur stops by on this first episode to talk about how a simple checklist helps his students enter the “Chill Zone”. If you don’t know John, he’s the 2021 Utah Teacher of the Year and a 2021 National Teacher of the Year Finalist. He is in his 10th year of teaching at Meadowlark Elementary, a Title I school in Salt Lake City. He’s also a National Board Certified Teacher, a Utah Teacher Fellow with the Hope Street Group, and an adjunct professor in the Graduate School of Education at Westminster College. We like Mr. Arthur.
If you’d like to connect with John and have any follow up questions about his ideas, you can find him on Twitter at @9thevermore
In our next episode, we’ll talk with John about how he helps his students advocate for themselves and their community through music.
If you like his “Workshop Checklist”, you can grab a copy of it here.
