ASCD has just placed their new issue of Educational Leadership online. It’s theme is “Faces Of Poverty.” Here are the articles that I think are particularly useful and are not behind a paywall:
The Widening Income Achievement Gap is by Sean Reardon (you might remember that he wrote an excellent column in The New York Times last week on a similar topic).

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The “Achievement Gap”
Research Says / Teaching Self-Regulation Has Long-Term Benefits is by Bryan Goodwin and Kirsten Miller.
Art and Science of Teaching / Targets, Objectives, Standards: How Do They Fit? is by Robert Marzano.
