Casady Clockwise: Aimee Hanneman and Carla Lane
This is our 10th episode of the Casady Voices podcast since 2016, but our first episode since we started "Remote Learning" because of the COVID-19 global pandemic and our first in a series we are calling, Casady Clockwise. Our format is based off of the "Clockwise Podcast" on Relay.fm. In less than 30 minutes each week, several guests gather with host Wes Fryer to share questions and answers relating to teaching and learning at Casady School and life in central Oklahoma. This is a public podcast shared to build bridges among our faculty, staff, families, and other constituents both near and far to us geographically. If you have feedback about this episode or podcast please contact Dr. Wesley Fryer using the contact form linked from his Casady Middle Division Computers class website.

Gamifying Beowulf in 10th Grade English Class
In fall 2019, Casady School 10th grader Andrew created a wonderfully complex and innovative game as his culminating project for his study of the Old English Poem Beowulf. In this 27 minute interview, Andrew describes his game and how it connected to the themes as well as historical, cultural context of Beowulf. 10th grade English teacher, Dr. Bonnie Gerard, explains project expectations and how Andrew found a very creative way to blend his understanding of game theory, mathematics and probability, with the themes of both Beowulf as well as "honor" in Scandinavian culture to demonstrate his mastery of the unit's goals and objectives. Listen to Andrew and Dr. Gerard's description of this fantastic project and the backstory of how it was created!
