Life gets crazy for me whenever school is in session, so that’s why I try my best to fill much of my summer with reading that never gets done August to May. This summer is no different. I did not get as much read as I had liked, but quality over quantity always.
Along with these summer reads, a post from Amy on her use of Stand and Talks from Sara led back to this Global Math from Sara. It is a great resource and introduction if you are not familiar with the structure. It would be a perfect PLC video. S&T will definitely be in the lineup on a regular basis this school year! I constantly find myself looking at graphs, questions and asking – how could this be tweaked into a stand and talk?
I have a couple of more titles – I’d hoped to finish before school started, but I think they’ll have to be the “keep in the car to read while waiting to pick up at band rehearsals” books – Five Practices into Practice and Routines for Reasoning.
Its been a productive and good break this summer. I’ll share more in later posts about specific take a ways from my reading.
So what’s been on your reading list and what were your take a ways?
