Feed your head




We've added a few new books about teaching to the collection about that you might be interested in taking a look at this year:

Social LEADia: moving students from digital citizenship to digital leadership (2017) by Jennifer Casa-Todd  is enthusiastically recommended by many teachers for practical examples of how students are "leveraging social media in positive and powerful ways."

Schooltalk: rethinking what we say about--and to--students every day (2017) by Mica Pollock helps "educators match their speech with their values."

Creating cultures of thinking: the 8 forces we must master to truly transform our schools (2015) by Ron Ritchhart "demystifies the process of creating dynamic learning communities."

Who's doing the work: how to say less so readers can do more by Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris (2016) talks about "how some traditional scaffolding practices may actually rob students of important learning opportunities and independence [and] suggests ways to make small but powerful adjustments."

Happy teachers change the world: a guide for cultivating mindfulness in education (2017) by Thich Nhat Hanh and Katherine Weare "includes easy-to-follow, step-by-step techniques--perfected by educators themselves--to learn mindfulness and to apply it in their relationships and teaching with students and colleagues."
