School of Teacher Education
Mission Statement/ Goal of ASCD
The WKU ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) Student Chapter Program is designed to accelerate pre-service educators and student teachers' professional development and their self-identification as education professionals and leaders.
ASCD is committed to improving teacher education and teacher quality. By meaningfully engaging teacher candidates with ASCD resources and involving them with members of the ASCD community, future educators and leaders gain an edge that energizes and raises their professional performance level.
Together with their class work, membership in an ASCD student chapter helps teacher candidates begin to learn how and where they might fit into their chosen profession. Membership establishes the link between the classroom and their first jobs as they transition into a career in education.
