These were the words read aloud by the Association of Educational Publishers to present DSC with the Distinguished Achievement award for our Words in Action program. What an accomplishment! As a colleague of mine said, It’s a tremendous honor for DSC and a very public affirmation of the great work we do here. When you consider the high caliber of the competing programs-and the size of the publishers behind them-you recognize what a mighty little organization we’ve become. For more public affirmation of Words in Action, read the words of teachers below about their experiences using the program in their classrooms.
