Keeping it Real

Keeping it real is a mantra of our encore podcast guest, author Denis Sheeran.  First, he’s super funny so just listen to enjoy this guy.  Second, he provides great real-world ideas for bringing relevance from all around us into the classroom, like using the show “Chopped” and TV commercials.  He wrote an entire book on relevance, so what a guest for this fast-moving conversation.  (Relevance & value of tasks are key motivators for kids.)
