Dr Katie Cunningham - Start With Joy (Repost)
On the show today, I’m winding the clock back a couple of years to when I sat down with Dr Katie Cunningham to talk about joy. Dr Katie Cunningham is an Associate Professor of Literacy and English Education at Manhattanville College and the author of “Start With Joy: Designing Literacy Learning for Student Happiness”.
In her book, Katie describes 7 pillars at the heart of joyful literacy experiences – connection, choice, challenge, play, story, discovery and movement. I love how each pillar transfers beautifully to athlete development, and the idea of “starting with joy” continues to have a big impact on my work.
