‘Tis the season for getting into some good education books. I’m not in grad school yet so it’s good to get into some more academic reading.
1. Write Beside Them by Penny Kittle
I have had this one since college, and it is always so inspiring to go back and get tips and ideas. Something I have always been struggling with is implementing a Writer’s Notebook like Kittle does. This year one of my goals is to be more intentional with it.
2. Productive Group Work by Frey, Fisher, and Everlove
This was given to me *cough* last year *cough* to read by my new teacher induction coordinator and I still haven’t gotten around to cracking it open. Group work isn’t something that I would say I really focus on managing in my classroom, which probably means I don’t know what the heck I’m doing. It will be good to be more knowledgable about it.
