Summer Book Studies for Teachers

Enjoy your summer by reading as many books to inspire, reinvent, and invigorate your mind, body, and spirit. This is what summer break is all about, isn't it? We need this time to reflect on our past practices and prepare ourselves for an upcoming year to make a difference in the lives of students. One great way we can get inspired is by participating in book studies with other like-minded educators. There are so many book studies for teachers on the Internet.

I will be participating in a book study by reading the book {"Teach Like a Pirate"}. This is a great book to help transform your life as an educator. The study begins June 2 as a Twitter discussion using the hashtag #tlap2014summerbook between 7:30-8:00 CST. This discussion will help prepare the participants for the first blog posts on June 8 hosted by Lisa Ann Tani our own Who's Who blogger from the blog Okinawan Girl on the topic of passion. Andrea Crawford of {Reading Toward the Stars} on Immersion and Krista Mahan of {Teaching Momster} on Rapport.

There are a lot of great book studies happening over the course of the summer I thought might be of interest to everyone. I am sure there is something to fit your individual needs. I've created a minilog to compile these studies into one convenient location for you. I will continue to add to the list as I find more studies. I have also made this minilog collaborative so please feel free to add your book study too! If you click on the words Summer Book Studies 2014 on the minilog below it will take you to the site to add your link.

Happy summer reading!
