I went to the ASCD website, but could not find what the letters stand for. Before I gave Google's algorithm a shot, I decided to have a little fun with this, mainly to avoid the building frustration.
Apocalyptical Stupidity and Cranial De-energization.
Agrarian Sunbathing and College Deferment
Aptitudinal Studies of Croatian Doctors
Annoying Siblings with Compulsive Dispositions
Aggression Syndrome in Children and Dentists
Google tells me that ASCD is the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, formed in 1943. Here we are, almost in 2015. When I jump to the ASCD Twitter home page, nothing tells me what the acronym means. The marketing tag says "Learn, Teach, Lead." Uh, okay. I still don't know what this group promotes, which makes me less interested in pursuing it for my own interest in personal growth and development.
As for the other acronym, it was on a chat: #wbcchat. I had fun with this one, too, until I finally asked what it stands for.
Why Bother [no idea] Chat
Wright Brothers Company Chat
What Bugs Children Chat
Weird But Classy Chat
Okay...enough with the fun. It is the Writing-Based Curriculum. Definitely of interest to me. Memo to organizations and chat leaders: on your Twitter home page, tell us who you are!
