The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development

ASCD

The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development is a large US-based educational group that supports (as indicated by the title) Supervision and Curriculum Development. Many very practical books are published by this association.

We have an institutional membership which entitles us to 10 copies of the editors’ choice five times a year, along with a variety of magazines and brochures. These books and magazines are distributed to our school’s leadership who will then share these works with their departments. Copies are also to be found in the staffroom.

Please browse the online store and remember that if there is anything that you would like to order for your department or yourself, we qualify for the institutional discount. Do note that in the downloads section there are excellent educational materials available for instant downloading once online payment has been made.

Some of the texts with which we are already becoming familiar, such as Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Understanding by Design by Carol Ann Tomlinson and Jay McTighe are published by this organization.

As we are developing our understanding of Differentiated Instruction, you will most certainly find inspiration here where there is a gold mine of resources from web seminars to videos.

The Association also offers workshops and online seminars for which we get a discount. Please do not hesitate to explore this option as part of your professional development.

As a member school, we have FREE access to the online library.

Jay McTighe comes to Bali!

As you will have read in Chris’ emails, we are very privileged to be hosting Jay McTighe at our school for a workshop on the elements of curriculum design. It is especially significant for MYP teachers as he is one of the key educational thinkers whose worked help inspire the new MYP Unit Planner. Being able to work with him will most certainly bring a clearer understanding of the whole process for all of us.
