Welcome to our MAMLE podcasts page!
We have TWO MAMLE podcasts available monthly! Mainely Middle is a MAMLE podcast geared towards practicing teachers and administrators. The Future is Now is a MAMLE podcast geared towards beginning and preservice teachers.
A conversation with Dr. Richard Biffle
We ask these hard hitting questions in this race, equity, and diversity themed podcast. Length– 33 minutes
- Is middle school too early to begin discussions about race outside of historical context like slavery?
- How do we go beyond teaching about African American history and culture only during MLK day and African American history month?
- Maine is the whitest state in the US. How do we have productive conversations about race when most, if not all, of our middle school students are white?
- What rationale and conversation should we prepare as we move towards culturally sustaining pedagogy and addition of equity into our curriculum when parents, administration, or colleagues dissent?
