ASCD announces new short book format, Arias

ASCD's new Arias format

I am so proud to be part of the launch of ASCD's new short format books, called Arias. The Arias are available as both eBooks and on-demand hard copies, and are limited to 9,000-11,000 words (40-50 pages). These are quick reads that are built around a central question, written in the first person.

The idea behind Arias is to give educators something they can read in one sitting and apply immediately to their classroom, school or their school district.

My book, The 5-Minute Teacher: How do I maximize time for learning in my classroom, demonstrates how teachers can create brief, student-centered teaching and learning segments that make learning interactive and fun.The 5-Minute Teacher takes some of the concepts from Role Reversal and zeroes in on what they look like in actual lessons and activities.

To learn more about ASCD's new Arias, read today's press release. Oh, and don't forget to reserve your copy of The 5-Minute Teacher today.

Don't miss Mark's book ROLE Reversal: Achieving Uncommonly Excellent Results in the Student-Centered Classroom, now available in the ASCD store, Barnes & Noble and at Amazon.com
