ASCD Express Calls for Content: Setting Routines for the First Days of School

ASCD Express Calls for Content: Setting Routines for the First Days of SchoolThe first days of school are an opportunity to set the tone and culture of your school or classroom. Clearly-communicated, student-centered routines create a sense of care and order, and that is the foundation for positive learning. What routines and procedures help you manage diverse learners? How do you consistently communicate expectations and help students develop the ability to self-regulate and self-assess their progress toward those targets? What do you do when things get off course?

ASCD Express is looking for 600–1,000-word essays or  brief multimedia content on the theme “Setting Routines for the First Days of School.” Guidelines for submissions are here; please send your submissions to express@ascd.org by June 15, 2016.

ASCD Express is still accepting submissions for the “Grading for Growth” theme.
