Teacher Talk’s April episode takes a look at various summer reading programs, including “Find A Book” Florida and also offers an interview with our own Malbert Smith. In the interview Dr. Smith covers a wide variety of topics, including how parents and educators access to the Lexile measure, how to manage multiple measures, how Lexile measures can be used in and outside of the classroom, and how to use “Find A Book” without having a Lexile measure. He also talks about the many resources available to both teachers and parents.
Teacher Talk is hosted by The Florida Department of Education and was designed to communicate with Florida teachers about innovative approaches to education. Through this venue, they make numerous resources available to help with the day-to-day challenges of teaching. “Teacher Talk” airs monthly on the Florida Knowledge Network, the JustforTeachers website, iTunesU and the Florida Education Channel on Dish Network. Episodes air the second Tuesday of every month and re-run as time slots are available.
