Summer is approaching quickly and it’s a time I always look forward to. Not just because of the days off. But it’s also such a great time to catch up on all the books that have been piling up all year! There are also some great new books out there, too, that I can’t wait to get! Here are just a few that I hope to read this summer.
Elena Aguilar also wrote The Art of Coaching, which was a GREAT book. But I am even MORE excited about this book because it deals with teacher teams! And that is a big focus in our District. Building a great team is so important for student success! Stay tuned to hear more on this book!
I have read so many great reviews about this book, such as on @christinanosek’s blog Teacher Triathlete. I have never read anything by Yaris and Burkins before, but I do believe that teachers often are the ones working hardest! Letting kids do the heavy lifting enables them to become more independent. I hope this book will give good tips on how to make that happen! More to come…..
“Every student deserves a great teacher, not by chance, but by design.” This is the opening sentence of Fisher, Frey and Hattie’s new book, Visible Learning for Literacy, and one of the reasons I decided to get this book. We have done lots of work with Hattie’s research in our District. I am excited to learn more about how to use it specifically in literacy instruction. Here is a YouTube video that summarizes some of the content.
So, those are part of my summer reading plans! What are yours?
Stay tuned for the Summer Reading: Children’s Book post!
