Episode 2: Adding Movement in the Classroom with Carolyn Reid

Our first guest Carolyn Reid (Middle/High School ELA) joins the Ready to Teach Podcast with a discussion about what drives her to experiment in her classroom, the power of observing each other’s classrooms, and strategies for how to get students up and moving more often.

Takeaways from this week’s episode:

  • Find ways to incorporate more movement into the classroom
  • Teaching is not about being the expert. It’s about seeking, learning, and observing.
  • Observing other teachers helps us step out of our own subjectivity and allows us to self-reflect
  • As teachers we are scientists, and when we stop experimenting and researching, we stop teaching
