Now that it is summer I actually have time to read what I want to read so I decided to link up with Teacher Mentor Texts. Mainly I am trying to read books that are in my classroom library so that I will be able to recommend books to my students next year.
Books I want to read for me:
How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas Foster has been recommended to me by other teachers as an enjoyable read. I would be curious to see how he says we should "read between the lines."
Alex, Cross, Run has been on my read list for a while now. James Patterson is one of my favorite authors so I hope to find some time soon to read his latest book.
What I recommend this week:
The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller is by far my favorite professional read so far this year. I am hosting a discussion on my blog this Thursday at 8 p.m. EST. If you are interesting in learning how to revamp your language arts classroom then read this book or just come join us for discussion!
