Embedded Formative Assessment Dylan Wiliam
Already completed an online chat with this book and looking forward to starting a face-to-face chat with colleagues from Science, World Languages and Family/Consumer Sciences this week!  Accountability is key and having these folks just down the hall as springboards for ideas, peer observations for accountability and encouragement when things don’t go exactly as expected…exciting! 

Practical ideas from years of research.  This book contains many, many doable techniques.  Chapter 1 explains how improving educational achievement impacts economic growth as well.  Chapter 2 sets the foundation, explaining what formative assessment is and is not.  I have read much about Formative Assessment the past 3 years and was already a believer, but this book offers great, practical techniques that I will be implementing next school year!

Teach Like A Pirate! Dave Burgess
The title itself is fun, but reading the reviews convinced me to put it on my summer list! Just flipping through and stopping at random spots…confirms this book will offer some fresh perspectives and ignite one’s teaching!
Join our chat #tlapmath or I believe there is a Monday evening #tlap chat as well!

5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematical Discussions Smith & Stein
Again, joining in an online chat #5pracs with several across the country.  Short read with some powerful suggestions. 

Make Just One Change Rothstein & Santana
This was suggested by @jgough earlier in the spring but I just havn’t gotten around to reading it yet, but looking forward to learning how to get my students to ask their own questions!

My later on list…

    • Yeah! Hoping you will be able to jump in with some of the chats! What I’ve read so far these 1st two weeks of summer has me excited about next school year!

  1. Embedded Formative Assessment has been my favorite teaching book so far this year. I’m currently reading both Teach Like a Pirate and Mathematics Formative Assessment. You’ve intrigued me with the 5 Practices book, and I’ll be looking forward to what you think about it. It’s awfully skinny for the price!
