New ASCD Book Review, Causes and Cures by Margaret Searle

   This new book from ASCD  is fabulous and is quickly becoming my new go-to "Bible"! This book gives case studies in different content areas and grade levels. There are so many strategies and tools given to help our struggling students so they don't wear us down.    
    Brain research about the root causes of  these difficulties is discussed and a 5 step protocol is given to address academic and behavior issues.  
   There is an ASCD Study Guide to enhance understanding and application of the information contained in the book. See the information at the end to access the study guide.
