Snacks 43 -- Stephen Camarata!

ESPECIALLY FOR TEACHERS!!! Hey, ya'll, Okay, I'm a bit late with this episode of S4theB!, but I promise you this show was worth the wait! Dr. Stephen Camarata, along with leading test designer Dr. Richard Wilcock, published findings (Intelligence) in May of this year that indicate, among many other things, that girls have a "significant advantage" over boys in certain tasks we regularly require of them. These tasks include many of the ones we use to assess their content knowledge and skills mastery. That's why I'm earmarking this show ESPECIALLY FOR TEACHERS!!! Listen here to the discussion I recently had with Dr. Camarata, a dedicated researcher and a truly exceptional worker in the world of teaching special needs children. Along the way, pick up a listen to three wonderful songs about summer, very different from one another in much the same ways that every child is different from one another! There's a fabulous rocker from Nashville's own Tragedy Kings, an eerily lovely electronica piece from the Ariaphonics, and a funky reggae-beat number from a San Francisco Bay Area group called Monkey. There's also a new tasty TechTipTidbit, all about all those "cards" you're already hearing about on your PC--network cards, sound cards, video cards...all that stuff! Stay around to the end, ya'll, because I'm closing the show with a beautiful piece by my new University School of Nashville teaching colleague Brandon Wilson, a song appropriately entitled, "Goodbye."
