Each student brings a unique set of interests, needs, strengths, and circumstances to school and teachers often struggle to connect with students, especially those facing the greatest challenges. Yet research and common sense tell us that educators positively impact student learning and achievement when they connect their students' lives outside of school to their learning and the larger school community.

On this episode of the Whole Child Podcast, we heard from two guests who shared strategies for meeting students where they are now, while preparing them for the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

How do you connect students' lives to what they are learning? Share your ideas and questions with other educators committed to meeting students where they are. Share your thoughts on the Whole Child Blog.
