ASCD Publications Honored

The Association of Educational Publishers recognized several ASCD publications from the past year. The winning feature article was Educational Leadership's "Sticks and Stones" (December 2000/January 2001), by Stephen L. Wessler, about how educators and students should intervene when they overhear derogatory language and name-calling. Another EL article, "Chaos in the Classroom," by Steven C. Schlozman and Vivien R. Schlozman, was a finalist in the learned article category. ASCD's Understanding by Design was a finalist in the instructional materials category, and the ASCD 2000 Books Catalog was a finalist in the catalogs category.
In addition, APEX honored the November 2000 issue of EL on "The Science of Learning" with an award of excellence for one-theme issues.

ASCD Student Chapters

The ASCD Student Chapter Program assists preservice, novice, and graduate-level teachers in becoming the best professional educators possible. The program provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, participate in professional development programs, and become members of ASCD at a reduced rate.
ASCD currently has 40 student chapters with more than 1,000 members. To start a chapter on your college campus or to receive a starter packet, contact Rochelle Jones at 703-575-5614 or send an email to

New Online Course

A new Professional Development Online course, Conflict Resolution: A Framework for Reducing School Violence, will be available November 2001. The six-lesson course helps teachers understand how they can—and why they should—emphasize conflict resolution in the classroom and in the school setting. Through lessons and interactive exercises, teachers can explore how to create an environment that empowers students to resolve conflicts constructively.
Other courses address classroom management, teacher reflection, global education, differentiated instruction, and multiple intelligences.
