The information CIA gathers and the analysis it produces mean little if we cannot convey them effectively… This guide is designed to be helpful and convenient, sensible in organization, and logical in content. It contains, among other changes, a revised list of accepted acronyms and new tips on word usage. The world is not static. Nor is the language we employ to assess it.”
“Every email and every tweet, every text, status update and comment I scribbled on one of our neglected small notebooks, photographed with my phone and shipped off as an image to its intended audience. … I did it to hack my brain.

They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
