A short note for today: I’ve just come across
the ASCD series “ASCD Talks with an Author,” and I wanted to share it. In the talks, ASCD authors share insights and talk
about the most provocative aspects of their books. ASCD has a library of almost
60 of these brief interviews available on its website.
The most recent interviews include Vivien Stewart speaking
about A World-Class Education: Learning
from International Models of Excellence and Innovation (2012), and A. Wade Boykin and Pedro Noguera speaking
on Creating the Opportunity to Learn:
Moving from Research to Practice to Close the Achievement Gap (2011).
