Conversation 122 – Amanda Schulz – Math, Musicals & More

By Shane Lawrence

Ed is a weekly podcast about the teaching life. No lists, no inspirational quotes: just honest convo's about the lives of teachers.

This week, I’m joined by Amanda Schulz, a charter school teacher specializing in direct instruction. And if those two buzzwords don’t perk your ears up…well. We talk about the benefits of structure and predictability, plus a little politics. And somehow, we wind up at musicals and how Amanda uses them as a bridge to understanding for her students. Whether it’s singing about fractions, or doing a rap battle about trees, Amanda is doing a pile of cool stuff in her classroom.
