Rick Wormeli, Author of Fair Isn't Always Equal

Hello, and welcome to Episode 51 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.

This week on the show I am joined by Rick Wormeli, among other things, the author of Fair Isn’t Always Equal, the quintessential book on the differentiated classroom. He is an educational researcher, presenter, and just educational genius.

Rick and I talk about the problems with grading, integrity in our classroom, taking platitudes to action and reality, acceptable levels of hypocrisy, having courageous conversations, the divide between income of an area and schools, balancing standards, the importance of having discussions about pedagogy.

So, sit back and enjoy Episode 51 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Rick Wormeli.
