About BTS

Coming to you from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, this podcast is all about teaching–and often, specifically teaching writing. Every episode, hosts Angie Berkley and Gina Brandolino talk with a guest who is a fellow teacher. Together, we dive deep into a key pedagogical topic. Writing teachers know the value of scaffolding–helping students understand and practice the principles and micro skills they need to tackle a full-blown essay. At BTS, we want to unveil and explore the skills and principles that great teachers similarly use to structure and support their classes and teaching practices in general. We cover issues important to the work we do in and out of the classroom. Listen in on SoundCloud, Stitcher, Apple Podcasts, or Google Podcasts.
