Podcast by Dr. Tammy Lynn Woody and Dr. Amy Burkman

In the era of standardized testing, there has historically been friction between the desire to teach in a manner conducive to both instructor and  PK-12 pupil needs and the imperative to adhere to highly regulated curriculum. The APUS School of Education is an educational preparation provider that strives to address critical issues such as this one.

In the following podcast, Dr. Tammy Lynn Woody and Dr. Amy Burkman converse candidly about their efforts to honor the unique characteristics that each APUS pre-service educator candidate brings to the instructional setting while helping candidates learn to “unpack” and uphold the required prescribed curriculum in their district and/or region.
