Empowering Cover

"Sawubona" is a Zulu greeting meaning, "I see you." I excitedly celebrate the contributions of several sisters in the February EL magazine. And the goosebumps I got when my copy arrived were unexpected! To see her [the girl on the cover], reminds me what it means to feel "seen." It is empowering.

I, too, was in awe of the cover! I took it with me to the hairdresser last Monday to show it off, then home to our beautiful girls! Well done, ASCD.

I saw that cover and nearly cried. It's beautiful.

Great Reads

The latest issue is spot on! I can't even tell you which article is my favorite. They are all excellent reads!

[You] hit the sweet spot with this issue! Great articles for literacy leaders.

Representation for All

I have finally had a chance to open this month's journal and loved reading [Sarah McKibben's] Reader's Guide. The importance of representation in books and images is something I talk about all of the time, but what she specifically wrote about her family is such an important example of representation as well. In fact, my membership just came due, and I immediately renewed because her opening is a perfect example of the inclusivity that ASCD embodies.

Reading Is Cool

I just love working with teachers! Had the most amazing discussions today centered around independent reading and the information shared by Penny Kittle in her article ["Let Them Read, Please"]. We're making reading cool again at Bellefonte Area middle school and high school.

We're Grateful, Too

I subscribed to Educational Leadership today because of Matthew R. Kay's "Fighting the Jeffersonian Dismissal" column. I'm grateful for writers like him.

App Love

My favorite app is ASCD's EL magazine for professional learning. The articles extend my knowledge, provide strategies to use, and include a range of topics.

Coming in May | Learning and the Brain

The next issue of Educational Leadership will explore the increasingly compelling connections between brain science and the classroom. With research in neuroscience shedding new light on how students learn best, the issue will aim to help educators make the most of this information to promote whole child development—and determine how they can sort genuine scientific findings from myths and hearsay. Authors include leading experts in the field—such as Daniel Willingham, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, John Gabrieli, Eric Jensen, and Pooja Agarwal—as well as new voices.

To purchase back issues of EL, go to www.ascd.org/el.

EL’s experienced team of writers and editors produces Educational Leadership magazine, an award-winning publication that reaches hundreds of thousands of K-12 educators and leaders each year. Our work directly supports the mission of ASCD: To empower educators to achieve excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.
