Episode 20: Mining for Gifts with Elissa Frazier


*In this episode, we explore the technique of “mining for treasures” in students and teachers. We also discuss meaningful instructional design for diverse student populations. We speak about her podcast Designed to Thrive Podcast and connecting multidisciplinary approaches to instruction. Elissa also details how important it is for teachers to cultivate personal creativity and using varied approaches to reach students where they are to grow students and teachers.**In Elissa’s terms “mining for treasure” is essential in guiding the education process that reverses traditional teaching models. She believes that students have more to offer inside of them than what’s presented to them through traditional lecturing. Elissa gained insight into her instructional practice by parenting two Autistic students and “believing she could tap into them”. I’m personally inspired by Autistic parents because of their positive attitudes toward their children, which is refreshing in education. Elissa unwavering belief that her own children have unique greatness that has cultivated a math savant and musical genius. This process has transferred to a teaching practice that is passionate sincere for improving student and teacher outcomes.*Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3
