Hooray for Multiculturalism!!
I found out about this podcast during my undergrad at UConn. Now, as a graduate student in the Seattle Teacher Residency, I listen to it every day on my way to class. It touches upon all the topics I am passionate about and does it in a fun and informative way. If you are an educator, this is a must-listen to help you become more aware of education issues and educated on culturally responsive pedagogy!
