Entering a New Era

Some great articles and WHAT a cover. Education needs a transformation—let's make it happen!

Thank you, ASCD, for helping us to continually transform our work. You serve as thought leaders for so many of us. I have so many of your EL issues that are dog-eared and saved because they are so useful in my work. This issue says it all right now.

Nerding out on my first copy of ASCD's EL magazine. Neat to see names I already follow, and I'm wondering, how did Paul Emerich France ["Putting the Person Back in Personalized Learning"] know I've been pondering the difference between individualized and personalized learning?

Investing in Educators

We are bombarded with strategies and suggestions, and it makes it hard to make decisions. EL magazine has so much quality, though. ["Putting the Person Back in Personalized Learning" by Paul Emerich France] makes so much sense, and it doesn't require you to buy a program, just to invest in our teachers and build their capacity. Thanks!

Different Needs, Must Read

["What Differentiated Instruction Really Means" by Lisa Westman] is a must-read for anyone in education or supporting educators! Want to know how to provide access to Tier 1 learning while focusing on students' needs? It's all here. Focus on growth, not loss.

Wiser and Stronger

["Opening Stronger—and More Open to Inquiry" by Myron Dueck] is striking a chord after an amazing morning talking all things student learning and assessment with our amazing secondary curriculum team! I am beyond excited for the shifts we are making at Danielson Middle School [in Leander, TX] and look forward to continuing our work!

SEL for School Reopenings

I LOVE this!! ["Fostering Hope, Healing, and Well-Being" by Phyllis L. Fagell]. What a great read for anyone in education. Offers six ways educators meet SEL needs of students as they transition back to in-person schooling and beyond.
