ASCD Community in Action

The ASCD Annual Conference Blog

Whether or not you are attending the 2006 ASCD Annual Conference (April 1–3 in Chicago), ASCD is committed to making sure that you have a chance to participate in its signature event. ASCD's Annual Conference Blog puts you and your computer in Chicago, along with thousands of educators from around the world, people just as passionate about and engaged in education as you are.
Visit www.ascd.org/acblog for exclusive on-site Conference reporting. Blog coverage highlights include write-ups on Conference sessions and events, connections between Conference sessions and current issues in education, links to ASCD research and ASCD publications, and photos of Conference activities.

ASCD Offers Book Club Kit

Why not start an ASCD book club and study an education-related title? ASCD is now offering a free book club kit that includes publicity posters and a tip sheet to ensure successful discussions. To order the kit, contact Angela Demmons at ademmons@ascd.org. Free ASCD study guides are available for most of the 200+ ASCD-published titles. To help you select a book for discussion, members can browse free sample chapters of ASCD books atwww.ascd.org/books.
