On today’s show, Andrew and Natasha meet again with our newest contributor, Allison, to record another episode of The Lounge Podcast. We have been asked to speak about the time in our preservice year — and specifically what it means to be in the practicum portion of the B.Ed year.
We would like to thank Matt Honsberger for the topic suggestion. If you have any questions that you would like answered – comment below, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), @reply on Twitter @RookieTeacherCA, or join us over on Facebook.
Watch the episode live, thanks to YouTube & Google On-Air Hangouts or search for the audio podcast on the iTunes Podcast directory.
