    Why, oh why, did I not listen to this episode two days ago? Yesterday I participated in a PD session with high school World History teachers. So many great ideas from this episode that need to be shared, particularly the individual lens approach, SMAR, TPACK, and Transnistria. My systematic approach to listening to all episodes from beginning to current has failed me. 🙂
