Nice Issue on Personalized Learning From ASCD Educational Leadership

ASCD has just published an issue of their journal, Educational Leadership, on the theme of “personalized learning.”

I’ve previously shared the link to my article in it, Student Engagement: Key to Personalized Learning. I’ve added it to The Best Resources For Understanding “Personalized Learning”

There are a lot of other great resources in the issue, but these two articles in particular seemed to me to be particularly helpful (and they, like mine, are outside the paywall):

The Genius of Design is by John Spencer. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Applying “Fed Ex Days” (Also Known As “Genius Hours”) To Schools.

One-Size-Doesn’t-Fit-All Homework is by Cathy Vatterott. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Homework Issues.

Another Useful Issue of ASCD Educational Leadership

The November issue of ASCD Educational Leadership is now online, and it’s another very good one – the them is “Disrupting Equity”!

You can see all the articles here. Some are behind a paywall, but several are freely available. They’re all good, but here are the ones that seemed especially useful.

Rick Wormeli is the author of “Let’s Talk About Racism In Schools.”

Here’s an excerpt:

Helping Students Discuss Race Openly is by Julie Landsman.

Conversation Interrupted is by Vernita Mayfield.

Here’s an excerpt:

Most of the articles in it are behind a paywall but, as usual, some gems are available for free.

Here are the ones that stand-out to me:
