Watch: "Where We Teach" on Elementary Education in Connecticut

Odane Campbell
CPBN Learning Lab JMA Satellite Campus
Where We Live talks education during a teacher panel.

Join us for a discussion about what works in elementary education and how to make it better. WNPR's John Dankosky led a conversation with a panel of teachers. 

We want you to join in, especially if you are an elementary school teacher yourself.

The video stream from the event is available below. 

Before the show starts, we screen a new documentary about an elementary school in South Carolina, "180 Days: Hartsville." We turn the conversation to Connecticut, and hear from you.

Our guests are Jodi Kabat, a third grade teacher at Burns Elementary in Hartford; Norma Ferguson, a fourth-grade teacher at Metacomet Elementary School in Bloomfield; Douglas Kaufman, associate professor of curriculum and instruction at UCONN's Neag School of Education; and Michelle McKnight, Math Intervention Specialist at Bennet Academy in Manchester.

What issues are important to you when it comes to elementary education? How do we better prepare teachers for standardized testing and other requirements, like evaluation protocols? If you're a teacher, what are some of the most important things you've learned about how to do your job?

Join the conversation on Facebook or Twitter, and follow along on the live stream below.
