This October, we're celebrating the two year anniversary of the Heinemann Podcast! We love bringing our listeners engaging conversations about the topics that matter to educators around the world.
Over the past two years, we've been honored to host a number of authors and educators. Our conversations have ranged from discussions of identity, race, and power, to reading, writing, and mathematics, to read alouds from new books, and more!
Below is a handful of episodes we feel represents the breadth of the subjects and ideas covered in the podcast. To hear more, visit our podcast home page or subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!
