  1. Great interview Brad! Really powerful conversation about what normal is. It reminds me of our course from the summer and the idea of normative centers and what causes those normative models. I know this is a issue close to your heart and I think this is a great start to the conversations we all need to be having in our classrooms and outside. Education is a powerful tool and raising awareness is one very effective way to educate people. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Brad,

    Wonderful interview! There were some really great insights made. In the fall, my students and I did a novel study on the book Wonder (which I think everyone, adults included, should read). This interview kept having me go back to themes in that book. At the forefront of my mind was the concept of the normative circle and how it can be so easy to be casted outside of that circle. The main character, Auggie, is your average child, but has a unique situation that casts him outside of the circle. In the story, Auggie moves beyond what it means to be “normal” and into the realm of “extraordinary.” Taking a strength-based approach and using “person first” language are small steps toward embracing diversity. Very engaging conversation!

  3. Great interview Brad! There were some really great thoughts with regards to “normal” and what that word means. I really appreciated the moment near the end when talking about how to handle kids who are struggling and not being able to meet there needs. I, personally, think that normal is a harsh word that is different for everyone. I think the word unique is more positive and enveloping of everyone’s individuality. Again, great conversation!
