Education news, tips, & resources for April
Welcome to the April edition of Leading and Learning, Solution Tree's newsletter built for Canadian educators. This month's theme is assessment and grading. As April begins, and we enter the final few months of the school year, there is no better time to improve and sharpen assessment and grading practices.

In this edition, you will find new and best-selling books from Canadian assessment experts like Tom Schimmer, Katie White, and Damian Cooper. As we get back to in-person professional learning opportunities, you will also find information on our upcoming Student Agency Institute and the Annual Conference on Assessment & Grading. As always, the newsletter includes free resources for just-in-time professional learning, including readings, videos, and downloads. Wishing you a sunny and successful spring!
