EPISODE DESCRIPTION

During the first 4 minutes of this episode, Ginger muses about a conference she's about to attend (http://essdack.org/ttt/), hosted by ESSDACK (http://essdack.org/), the company that runs Turning Point Learning Center. She also considers the beauty of the Flint Hills and the destruction of the June 11, 2008 tornado that hit Chapman and Manhattan, KS the night before.

IF you have an interest in a more personal "snap" from Ginger, listen to the first of the podcast.

However, at about 4 minutes, she FINALLY decides to get to the point of the grading/assessment dilemma, considering grade cards and the under-motivation and under-achievement that current assessment and grading practices foster.

Charlie Mahoney is referenced: http://charliemahoney.com/
and the phone call at the end was from her husband, Eric.

Enjoy!
