Last week, ASCD launched a brand new product for teachers, ASCD myTeachSource. This is a digital subscription product where teachers can access tools and content they need on key topics, such as formative assessment and classroom management. It’s priced at just $29 per year and is designed completely with the needs of teachers in mind. (members ALREADY have access to it!)
Now, I am a self-admitted ASCD junkie, given the amount of their books/authors I depend on to meet my own professional development needs. But this? This is for my people!
- Articles on a PLETHORA of topics. This week alone I could share 3 different articles on formative assessment. A very timely topic, this provided background, practicality, and easy applications for my teachers. From the articles section, you can also connect with videos, tools, and additional links on the topic!
- Videos: What better catalyst to a PLC than a short video? The focused in on best practices, no fluff, so I could get right to the good stuff. (LOVED the one on “relationship building exercises”.
- Tools: As a principal, again, this are SO valuable for quick and easy support with my team! I can send these out for team leaders to lead a conversation on, or I can use them for coaching with those might need a lil’support. A time saver for me, but a HUGE resource for them!
- Links: Now, you can google just about anything you want these days, but knowing that ASCD has cultivated these resources, that align with their “whole child” vision, & that have been vetted by their team, just makes me so much comfortable utilizing them!
Check it out!
All about that support,
