Improving Education
for Every Learner





Registration is open for the 2018 Winter Conference -  "Gearing Up for Change" January 31, 2018


StoryCorp has launched The Great Thanksgiving Listen. The campaign empowers young people—and people of all ages—to create an   oral history of the contemporary United States by recording an interview with an elder using the free StoryCorps App. ASCD publicist are working with  producers of the show to reach out to our members and see if they might like to share the project in their classrooms to empower students to connect with an elder or loved one and record their stories. (Here is a lesson plan created by StoryCorp for teachers and the Facebook group they created.)

President's Message

Hello OhioASCD,

“I can’t wait to get out of school!” Have you heard these words from your students? Do they think learning stops once they graduate? I wonder if we educators fail in our task to encourage lifelong learning by making our lessons too irrelevant. Perhaps we can look harder at ways to promote curiosity and a joy of learning. The theme of the October issue of EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP is “Unleashing Problem Solvers”.  It builds on all the Problem Based Learning that we emphasize these days. Our task is to make sure that those problems we ask them to solve are real problems, ones that impact their community or that they might face in their adult life.
