Here are the authors and books in the order they are mentioned on the podcast. Feel free to explore the links as you listen. There’s so much more in the conversation than a mere list can convey.

The City Podcast: Grade Shock!

by Timothy Motte on May 26, 2014

The way things currently are, the skills that get kids through high school are not the skills needed to get through college.

Megan Mueller encounters students all the time who were successful in high school who are not able to cope with college grades as low as a B. Dr. Ordway deals with this phenomenon at the graduate level. And Cate MacDonald is working at the high school level to change the way things are.

This podcast will open your eyes to a mental shift that needs to happen in education, and perhaps in other areas of life as well.
