In Case You Missed It

Check out what’s been going on at ASCD:

  • Why having parent-teacher conferences with ELL families is important to helping the student succeed.
  • To be genuine with students, learn their names and listen to what they have to say.
  • Getting students to take responsibility for their actions includes owning the consequences, as well.
  • Didn’t get a chance to participate in Hedi Hayes Jacobs’ webinar on teacher evaluation? Check it out in ASCD’s archives.
  • Newly released PD online courses designed to help educators apply DI, Common Core, and other instructional approaches.
  • Evidence suggests rich experiences create dense neural networks — one of the reasons Thom Markham says project-based learning fits perfectly with encouraging optimal brain function.
