Alexandria, VA (6/25/2015)—Teachers, principals, and district leaders can engage in summer professional learning and get a head start on September with ASCD’s 2015 summer reading list. The 25 publications featured on this list provide leadership inspiration, assessment techniques, 21st century insights, and more, and they are packed with best practices for educators at all levels to rejuvenate their practice and ensure student success in the next school year.
“Despite the increasing demands on educators’ time, they remain committed to providing the best education to each and every student,” said Stefani Roth, ASCD publisher. “The summer months are an ideal period to take a step back, reflect on the year gone by, and dive into high-quality professional learning to prepare for the next year. With these goals in mind, we designed ASCD’s summer reading list, and hope all educators enjoy opening these recommended titles.”
The list is broken down into five topics, each with five featured publications. Here is a breakdown of the five topics and a preview of a few titles in each.
21st Century Learning
Curriculum Design and Lesson Planning
Instructional Strategies and Student Engagement

In addition to the summer reading list, ASCD has discounted more than 200 professional development publications and DVDs. To check out these titles, visit the ASCD store.
