Why subscribe?

Friends and co-hosts Marcus Luther and Jim Mayers have been classroom teachers for over ten years. Both veteran English teachers, they launched The Broken Copier to have a healthy, authentic, and honest conversation about teaching. Along with the podcast, there are also semi-frequent posts on this Substack that share resources, explore new strategies, and take the conversation around teaching to the written form for those who find it helpful and meaningful.
