I ran across this on the ASCD Smart Brief. Here’s the link to the conference blog.  The Conference on Teaching & Learning

is October 23-25th in San Francisco. I always like following their

conference blogs. Here’s an except from the brief giving an overview:

With the

current emphasis on standardized tests and high-stakes consequences, is it still

possible for schools to pursue a holistic approach to education? This ASCD

Conference will explore school practices and programs that ensure all students

are knowledgeable, motivated, engaged, and healthy. That’s why we are blogging

on the experiences leading up to, during, and following the conference. Our

hopes are that this blog and this conference will be a forum for sharing and

exploring the questions, strategies, and needs of whole child educators.
