In this episode occasional co-host Dan White and I interview, Noah, a recent high school graduate about his experiences in a typical Upstate New York High School.  Noah’s candid assessment of what works and what doesn’t in our classrooms is refreshing and compelling. And it’s certainly not all rainbows and unicorns.

Dr. Barbara Oakley is an educator, writer, and engineer with one of the coolest backstories I’ve ever heard.  She has become an expert on learning and her most recent book Learning How to Learn: A Guide for Kids and Teens is spectacular - so spectacular that my 16-year-old daughter was impressed.  Barb and I have a wide-ranging conversation about her background, learning in general, a little bit about math instruction specifically, and her thoughts on how we can improve teaching and learning in our schools.  I was really impressed with Barb, and I made her promise to do a part two. I hope you enjoy her story and insights as much as I did.

Learning How to Learn: A Guide for Kids and Teens is available everywhere, and you can learn more about Barb and her work at www.barbaraoakley.com.
