So the topic for yesterday’s #bfc530 Twitter chat was all about books, something I am very passionate about.
I love to read. Always have. As a child my parent’s would drop me off all summer long at the library as soon as it opened. With a brown bag lunch I would stay all day, reading, exploring, helping the librarians put the newspapers on those wooden poles. Loved every minute of it. I could never get enough.
It was here that I picked up my habit of reading multiple books at a time (which my wife thinks is crazy). Pictured is my current stack I am attempting to plow through – A healthy mix of professional and pleasure.
After seeing all the sharing, I’ve now had to add an ever larger number to my ever growing collection.
In no particular order, here it is:
- The Secret Life of the American Musical (Jack Viertel)
- Boys in the Boat (Daniel James Brown)
- The Teacher Wars (Dana Goldstein)
- Amplify: Digital Teaching and Learning in the K-6 Classroom (Katie Muhtaris)
- Teach like a Pirate (David Burgess)
- Serafina and the Black Cloak (Robert Beatty)
- The Shack (Wm Paul Young)
- Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell)
- Carry On (Rainbow Rowell)
- Rising Strong (Brené Brown)
- The Slight Edge (Jeff Olson)
- Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World (Jane McGonigal)
- The Miracle Morning (Hal Elrod)
- Peer Coaching to Enrich Professional Practice, School Culture, and Student Learning (Pam Robbins)
- Cultivating Genius: The Why and How of Creating a 20% Time Learning Environment (Don Eckert)
Looks like I’m going to have a busy reading future. (And I love it!)
