I read to grow professionally...
...books for my training, Twitter, writing by my favorite teacher bloggers, books by my favorite educational writers.
|Art of Changing the Brain- Connects brain research and learning, read for our Comprehensive Literacy training.|
Nurturing Independent Learners- Great read on scaffolding theory, another read from our CLM training.
Pernille Ripp's fantastic blog.
I can't wait to read Kelly Gallagher's newest book!
My Twitter feed is always full of fantastic thinking and resources.
I (try) read for pleasure...
...books for my book club, the latest recommendations from friends, and my ever growing Good Reads To Read list.
|Just finished Me Before You and The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry for book club.|
The Girl on the Train is up next for book club.
My Good Reads To Read list grows much more rapidly than my Read list!
I want to also be an avid reader of the books the students in the classrooms I work with are reading. I work in classrooms kindergarten through 8th grade and I want to be that person who has the perfect book for every reader I talk to. I try to stay on top of Nerdy Book Club posts and follow #TitleTalk and @MrSchuReads.
|Just a sampling of the wonderful children's books I've read lately or am hoping to read soon!|
I have more books waiting to be read than I have time to read. I'd love to curl up for a week straight and lose myself in the adventures tucked into these texts.
How do you balance your professional growth reading, your reading for pleasure, and your reading for students?
