Let’s Get Critical


HoerrPost submitted by ASCD Scholars facilitator Tom Hoerr.

This year’s ASCD Annual Conference is all about critical transformations. But before we meet in San Antonio, let’s revisit what’s important at home.

Previously, we’ve talked about the change you would like to make happen in your home contexts: increasing parent involvement, enhancing teacher dialogue, developing staff leadership, increasing academic rigor, and bringing in new technology for 21st century learning, among many.

All of these are beneficial, but what is the critical change in your home context? What (or who) are your best resources for accomplishing these transformations, and who do you still need to convince of the critical nature of these changes? How can the ASCD Scholars help push the levers of change?
