Honestly, I'm surprised Michelle and I were able to select a book from everyone's stack as quickly as we did. Afterall, there are so many amazing professional books out right now. My summer stack is tall and, by the look of everyone else's stacks, many #cyberPD community members have some tall stacks too. Interestingly, there was one book that showed up often. One book that seemed to stand out as a good match for the current times. When Michelle said to me, "I think it's the book that will really stretch us." I knew she was right.
As we talked, we felt this book was also a good match for educators across grade levels and content areas. As we talked, we reflected on the books that have seemed to have had the greatest impact on our community; it seems it has always been the books that take us a bit out of our comfort zone. With the world being the tricky place that it is right now, we hope our community members will agree that this is the right time for this book.
So...you're asking...what's the book?
You're thinking....get on with it already!
You're right. I'm taking much too long to share the good news with you. For this year's #cyberPD community booktalk, we'll be reading Being the Change: Lessons and Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension by Sara K. Ahmed.
If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to Michelle Nero (@litlearningzone) or me (@cathymere). We're happy to answer any questions you may have.
Looking forward to our July conversation.
