The February issue of ASCD Educational Leadership is out, and it’s another good one.  The them is Literacy in Every Classroom.

You can see the entire issue here.

Quite a few articles are not behind a paywall.

My favorites are:

The Writing Journey by Kelly Gallagher. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Writing Instruction. Here’s an excerpt:


Critical Thinking Won’t Develop Through Osmosis by Bryan Goodwin. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Teaching & Learning Critical Thinking In The Classroom.

Why Should Students Write in Math Class? by Tutita M. Casa, Kyle Evans, Janine M. Firmender and Madelyn W. Colonnese. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Writing In Math Class.

There’s a lot more there worth checking out, including a piece by Doug Lemov.
