“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” – J.K. Rowling

This week I have been thinking about a lot of books that I have read the last few months so I thought it was a good time to update everyone on my recommendations from the past few months.

  1. The NEW School Rules: 6 Vital Practices for Thriving and Responsive Schools by Anthony Kim and  Alexis Gonzales-Black. “If we don’t change how schools work and how they are organized, we won’t ever realize the full potential of the work they do.” This inspirational book provides practical advice for educators who are launching or improving schools that you could use tomorrow to make changes. The authors guide you through six rules that they have seen make the biggest impact on how organizations function and how work gets done. The book is chock full of case studies, activities, and resources for you to use. They also have a helpful website here.
  2. Social LEADia: Moving Students from Digital Citizenship to Digital Leadership by Jennifer Casa-Todd. This book explores the concept of digital leadership and its place in today’s schools and classrooms. It provides advice on how we can help our students navigate the digital world
  3. The Wild Card: 7 Steps to an Educator’s Creative Breakthrough by Wade King and Hope King. This book is motivational and encourages educators to find their spark! It also provides educators with a guide of how to build creativity in the classroom through realistic strategies. 

I always love a good book, what suggestions do you have?
