Classroom Practices (3:08) As the world constantly changes, so are the spaces we inhabit within the world. Classrooms don’t always look exactly the same as they did when we were in school. We’re in studio today with Dawan Coombs, an English professor here at BYU, to take a glimpse into what is going on in today’s classrooms. Storytime (15:02) Libraries are known for their storytimes and we are too. Each week at around 15 minutes past the hour, tune in to hear book reviews or live readings of picture books or poetry. Today we have a reading of "My Father's Dragon" by Ruth Stiles Gannett. Autistic Spectrum (19:38) There are so many challenges that our children face in life and especially if they also face a disability. In those circumstances there can be immense challenges. However there plenty of ways that we can support children with special needs. Dr. Jon Cox joins Rachel in the studio today to talk about his speciliality: those on the autistic spectrum. Writer's Path (33:39) We all have our own paths in life, and we can find inspiration in the journeys of people around us. Their journey can help us make sense of where we may be headed, or determine where we want to go. Rachel is in the studio today with Dustin Hansen, an author, illustrator, and game designer to talk about his journey. "Journey" (45:20) Today we are around the Librarians' Table with Jess and Mikell, student librarians here at BYU, to chat about Aaron Becker's book "Journey".
