“ASCD resources have established
the
gold standard in K–12 professional development.” —
Douglas B. Reeves, author and researcher 
WE’RE A LEADER BECAUSE YOU ARE
Recently, a national survey from the independent research firm Education Market Research found that more educators name ASCD as the “industry leader” in providing programs and services for K–12 professional development than any other organization. That’s because we’re unique in being the largest professional provider made up of educators themselves. We listen to you and your colleagues, find out what’s working in schools and classrooms, and develop resources that can help you leverage those ideas too.

GET THE BIG PICTURE
Wasting Minds: Why Our Education System Is Failing and What We Can Do About It
Ronald A. Wolk
Renowned education journalist Ronald A. Wolk—the founder and former editor of
 Education Week
skewers the conventional wisdom of school reform and illuminates a path forward to better schools and higher achievement through an emphasis on personalized education and evaluation of learning based on student work and performance, not standardized test scores. Wolk identifies nine formidable power centers that make it impossible to change public education and explains why the United States needs a paral-lel strategy of creating new schools outside the traditional structure.

Focus: Elevating the Essentials to Radically Improve Student Learning
Mike Schmoker
Instead of piling on one new reform fad after another, here is a book that boils down solutions for improved schools to the most powerful, simple actions and structures that ensure you prepare all students for college, careers, and citizenship. Best-selling ASCD author and renowned consultant Mike Schmoker explains why and how to take a first-things-first approach to school improvement and focus laser-like on only three essentials: coherent curriculum, sound lessons, and purposeful reading and writing. Applying these insights gained from his years of work with schools of all kinds, Schmoker lays out a complete plan for radically improving schools.

Breaking Free from Myths  About Teaching and Learning: Innovation as an Engine for Student Success
Allison Zmuda
When you hear students say that what they learn in school doesn’t have much to do with life, or that getting the answer right is the most important thing, what they’re doing is reflecting expectations reinforced by schools themselves. Discover how to change that by breaking free from these myths that negatively affect learning. Teacher, author, and consultant Allison Zmuda explains how schools can rewire for a more optimistic, empowered, and dynamic approach.
