You'll receive a brief video (15 minutes) overview of the book and recommendations about how you might use it to improve your teaching practice. These overviews can help you decide whether to read the book yourself or not!
Each video overview will also include the most important takeaways and insights gleaned from the book from the perspective of a former English teacher with 13 years of experience in the classroom.
You'll have the opportunity to discuss each book in a private FB Group with other teachers who sign up for the event. The best part is there is no reading required to participate in the discussions!
Here is a list of tentative books that we will discuss during this event!
*This book list may change depending on interest of attendees.
Teachers who sign up will also receive bonus materials and trainings on the following topics:
Workshop Teacher Toolkit
This toolkit is absolutely free and includes planning templates, editable assessment tools, charts, mentor texts, choice boards and more!
