Down the Hall – Ep 20 – Carrying the Torch
Weve got a different show this week, as Jenny is away and we have a wonderful fill-in performance from EPLTs own Heather McGregor!
While we dont have a discussion this week, you do get to hear Jenny as she interviews Vanessa Lapointe of The Wishing Star. Vanessa taught for EPLT at an Early Childhood Education summer institute this past July. They discuss assessment and support in early childhood education.
Finally, EPLT has lots of stuff going on this month, and Heather and Dave give you all the information you could possibly need about the numerous MED cohort information sessions going on (as long as you come back to this blog post for the links, anyway).
All of this, along with the death of Steve Jobs and a V-Con wrap-up. No, there are no pictures of Dave in a sci-fi costume.
Many thanks to Heather for filling in on the broadcast side, and to Sharon Hu (former producer and co-host for Down the Hall) for filling in on the editing side. Thats how important Jenny is. It takes two people to fill in for her!
