From ASCD –
What does it mean to “support the whole child?” How important is it to hold high expectations for students? ASCD’s newest e-book, Supporting the Whole Child: Reflections on Best Practices in Learning, Teaching, and Leadership, addresses many of these questions and is available for download free of charge starting today, and running through November 17, 2009.
This third in a four-book series exploring whole child education features articles from Educational Leadership magazine and other ASCD publications that focus on supporting students by differentiating instruction, using scaffolds and interventions, being inclusive and positive, and responding to 21st century learning challenges. Authors include Carol Ann Tomlinson, Thomas R. Guskey, Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, and Robyn Jackson.
With the right supports, students are capable of doing more than even they think they can. Share this opportunity with colleagues, family and friends committed to educating the whole child. Download today!
