How can educators transform old schools into remarkable learning environments? Packed with fresh ideas and action strategies for teachers, leaders, and policy makers, this courageous book offers a compelling vision from the research and hands-on work of two internationally recognized educators, authors, and thought leaders.
The authors propose a new approach to pedagogy as the basis for the bold moves that teachers and leaders need to make to engage all learners and prepare them for school and the world. They examine every aspect of K–12 education, including teacher roles, curriculum, instruction, and assessment, as well as the physical and virtual learning spaces that engage 21st century teachers and learners. With thought-provoking proposals and practical strategies for change, <i>Bold Moves for Schools<i> sets educators on the path of redefining and reenergizing their profession and creating exciting new learning environments that truly prepare students for today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic environments.

Boosting your students' literacy requires addressing all the interconnected elements of emotion, cognition, and higher-order thinking. You can meet that challenge with the advice from two ASCD best-selling authors Pérsida Himmele and William Himmele and a classroom teacher Keely Potter.
Media Literacy in Every Classroom introduces the process of media literacy and powerful ways to use it in virtually any K–12 classroom. Written by two longtime leaders in media literacy education, this quick reference guide addresses recent concerns about the effects of media on democracy, public policy, and culture by outlining an inquiry-based approach that teaches students how to think without telling them what to think.
