On the Podcast: We Got This Read Aloud with Cornelius Minor Part 2

E09814_Minor_Bookcover_121318_Blog“We learn lots from hero stories, but sometimes they leave out the concrete realities of change,” writes author Cornelius Minor. He goes on to write: “The ‘teacher as superhero’ story can be similarly misleading.” Today on the Heinemann Podcast, we’re exploring the reality of that story.
