Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning (and What to Do Instead) Audiobook

Ungrading: Why Rating Students Undermines Learning (and What to Do Instead)

Author: Susan D. Blum Narrator: Alfie Kohn, Emily Durante, Matthew Josdal Release Date: June 2021

The moment is right for critical reflection on what has been assumed to be a core part of schooling. In Ungrading, fifteen educators write about their diverse experiences going gradeless. Some contributors are new to the practice and some have been engaging in it for decades. Some are in humanities and social sciences, some in STEM fields. Some are in higher education, but some are the K-12 pioneers who led the way. Based on rigorous and replicated research, this is the first book to show why and how faculty who wish to focus on learning, rather than sorting or judging, might proceed. It includes honest reflection on what makes ungrading challenging, and testimonials about what makes it transformative.

'Let's play truth or dare, for old times' sake . . . ' I reluctantly agree, silently praying none of my three oldest friends gets the chance to ask me a truth. There is so much I've been keeping from them. Just for this weekend, for our long-awaited college reunion, I want to put all that aside and have some fun. But it wasn't my secrets I should have been worried about. It was theirs. When Ada draws truth, she can't meet my eye. 'Ivy . . . ' she begins and then stops. Before saying something that I immediately wish she could take back. But of course she can't, not now. The worst thing is no one else seems as shocked. I realize they have let me think I was to blame all these years. Perhaps I never knew my closest friends to begin with. Maybe we were never actually friends all . . .

Gone: A Memoir of Love, Body, and Taking Back My Life

Author: Linda K. Olson Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: April 2021

Linda Olson and her husband, Dave Hodgens, were young doctors whose story had all the makings of a fairy tale. But then, while they were vacationing in Germany, a train hit their van, shattering their lives-and Linda's body. When Linda saw Dave for the first time after losing her right arm and both of her legs, she told him she would understand if he left. His response: 'I didn't marry your arms or your legs. If you can do it, I can do it.' In order to protect their loved ones, they decided to hide the truth about what really happened on those train tracks, and they kept their secret for thirty-five years. As a triple amputee, Linda learned to walk with prostheses and change diapers and insert IVs with one hand. She finished her residency while pregnant and living on her own. And she and Dave went on to pursue their dream careers, raise two children, and travel the world. Inspiring and deeply moving, Gone asks listeners to find not only courage but also laughter in the unexpected challenges we all face. The day of the accident, no one envied Linda and Dave. Today, many do.

Author: Winnie Archer Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: April 2021

Vincent van Dough focaccia is being touted on Instagram as the best thing since sliced bread. By strategically placing chives, olives, and yellow peppers to look like poppies and sunflowers, bakers create a mouthwatering masterpiece in the style of the great postimpressionist painter.

But one person won't be tasting the Mexican bakery's latest specialty. Ambitious school-board president Nessa Renchrik has been murdered. Like the rest of this close-knit community, Ivy is shocked. But she's just as surprised to discover her beau-restaurateur Miguel Baptista had his own fling with Nessa back in the day, and now the police have this half-baked notion he might have killed her. It's up to Ivy, her boss Olaya Solis, and eighty-six-years-young Penelope Branford to separate the wheat from the chaff to determine who the real culprit is...

It's Christmastime and everyone is heading to Torte, the most cheerful bakery in town. There's no place like home for the homicide . . .

Blood, Powder, and Residue: How Crime Labs Translate Evidence into Proof Audiobook

Blood, Powder, and Residue: How Crime Labs Translate Evidence into Proof

Author: Beth A. Bechky Narrator: Emily Durante Release Date: January 2021

Blood, Powder, and Residue goes inside a metropolitan crime laboratory to shed light on the complex social forces that underlie the analysis of forensic evidence. Drawing on eighteen months of rigorous fieldwork in a crime lab of a major metro area, Beth Bechky tells the stories of the forensic scientists who struggle to deliver unbiased science while under intense pressure from adversarial lawyers, escalating standards of evidence, and critical public scrutiny. Bechky brings to life the daily challenges these scientists face, from the painstaking screening and testing of evidence to making communal decisions about writing up the lab report, all while worrying about attorneys asking them uninformed questions in court. She shows how the work of forensic scientists is fraught with the tensions of serving justice-constantly having to anticipate the expectations of the world of law and the assumptions of the public-while also staying true to their scientific ideals. Blood, Powder, and Residue offers a vivid and sometimes harrowing picture of the lives of highly trained experts tasked with translating their knowledge for others who depend on it to deliver justice.
