Meet ASCD’s Authors at #ASCD13
We love hearing from our blog readers and followers on social media about what they’re interested in discussing. One of the most popular topics of conversation is ASCD’s books. And so we’re thrilled to be bringing attendees of our 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibit Show in Chicago access to some of their favorite authors.
One of the ways you can learn more from our authors is through the Author Talks at our Annual Conference, where they’ll be sharing personal insights on teaching and learning. On Saturday, March 16, head to the ASCD Center (McCormick Place West, Level 3, Exhibitor Floor) from 12:00 noon to 12:45 p.m. to hear from
- Robert J. Marzano, co-author of many best-selling books for educators, including Effective Supervision: Supporting the Art and Science of Teaching; and
- Grant Wiggins and Jay McTighe, authors of The Understanding by Design Guide to Advanced Concepts in Creating and Reviewing Units and more.
On Sunday, come back to the ASCD Center from 12:00 noon to 12:45 p.m. to hear from
- Heidi Hayes Jacobs, whose books include Curriculum 21: Essential Education for a Changing World; and
- Carol Ann Tomlinson, whose books include Leading and Managing a Differentiated Classroom.
In addition to the Author Talks, 33 ASCD authors and presenters will be making their way through the ASCD Center, signing copies of their books.
