ASCD Conference —€” Wish You Were Here!

By Ruth Manna
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8, 9–12

    This weekend I'm in San Francisco for the annual conference of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD). At this year's conference there are more than 9,700 educators from all over the U.S. and the world. I've met educators from Mexico, Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and states from Hawaii to New York. I've learned new teaching techniques and strategies, and all about new books and products, too! Next week I'll write more, but for now I thought you'd like to see a few snapshots of this year's ASCD conference and of San Francisco.

    To the right, you see one of the hundreds of sessions offered at this year's conference. Topics include teacher recruitment, professional development, habits of mind, assessment, preschool curriculum, creativity, math interventions, leadership, and many, many more.

    In the exhibit hall there are tons of free samples. We learn about new programs and supplementary materials and find out about the latest in technology.

    Next year's ASCD conference will be held in Philadelphia on March 24–26, 2012. Maybe you'll make it then!
