Create@State Podcast Features Teacher Education Students' Red Wolves Traveling Suitcase

Ways To Subscribe
Johnathan Reaves, KASU News

This is A-State Connections on KASU.  This is the weekly segment called “A-State Connections and Create@State: Making Connections That Count”.  In this interview, we conclude our series of interviews about how students are trying to save the American Red Wolf from extinction.  Education of the red wolf to school children is an important aspect, and students from Arkansas State have put together different teaching tools that can be used in the classroom.  The tools are put into a traveling suitcase that will eventually be available for check out at the ASU Museum by educators.  The idea for the traveling suitcase for education started out of a Making Connections class that was held in the fall of 2017.  Traveling suitcase exhibits contain original artifacts, lesson plans, books, and activities for use in area schools.  Instructor in the Teacher Education Department Sandra Hawkins taught students in the Making Connections class and an idea was formed to put it together.  Jessi Martin is an ambassador for the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Arkansas State and is an undergraduate student.  Kennedy Capps is also an undergraduate teaching student at A-State.  Hawkins tells about the Making Connections class.  Click on the Listen button for the entire interview.
