ASCD Faculty

For years, educators have gone to ASCD conferences and institutes to learn about new ideas and methods. Now, ASCD can come to you. ASCD Faculty is a group of educational consultants available for on-site professional development and consulting. ASCD Faculty members work with schools and school systems interested in one-, two-, or three-day workshops—or for more long-term professional development, including facilitation of study groups, online courses, and coaching. These experts provide assistance with such topics as differentiated instruction, Understanding by Design, brain-based learning, assessment, instructional leadership, action research, standards-based classrooms, reading strategies, and effective use of technology. For more information, contact ASCD at (800) 933-2723, ext. 5677.

Every Child Reading

The Learning First Alliance, a coalition of 12 national education organizations, which includes ASCD, has released criteria for preparing teachers to offer reading instruction proven to improve student achievement. Every Child Reading: A Professional Development Guide describes the essentials of successful professional development in reading. The guide also helps educators and policymakers make effective decisions, with the ultimate goal of improving students' reading achievement.
The report explains what teachers need to know and be able to do to teach and improve students' reading skills. It describes conditions that must be in place for teachers to improve reading instruction and provides eight components of effective, research-based reading instruction in the primary grades. Download the report for free at www.learningfirst.org. Purchase print copies for $3 by calling (800) 933-2723, ext. 2, or by visiting www.ascd.org.
