ASCD, a global community dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading, announced today the release of four new professional development titles that support academic achievement. As schools struggle with high achievement gaps among students, educators will find support in identifying ways to help close these gaps and implement new strategies to improve academic success.
"As a former teacher, I understand that educators may feel occasionally overwhelmed with the struggles of improving student learning," said Dr. Gene R. Carter, Executive Director and CEO of ASCD. "These new professional development offerings enable educators to find the solutions they need to accomplish their goals and raise academic achievement among all students."
