This week the topic is your favorite!
I love to read. And I love to read books about education! While typically I wouldn't care who published the book, my favorite happens to be Stenhouse! Stenhouse Publishers are my favorite because they offer free previews of whole books online. An account is required but the account is free! Most of the books are written for K - 8; a few books are written K - 12. In my career I've worked in elementary, middle and high schools so I still read books from all levels! I use free previews to scan a variety of books - helps me determine what books to purchase!
Currently I'm previewing three books ...
Power Up: Making the Shift to 1:1 Teaching and Learning by Roberts and Neebe catches my attention about using technology in the classroom. Roberts and Neebe are English teachers - so many of their examples are from English classes. That's OK with me since many times ideas can cross over disciplines.
Don't judge a book by its cover ... preview it!
Have you ever suggested any math related books to your students? Do you have a list of books that aren't self-help?ReplyDelete
Yes - I recommend most books by Theoni Pappas ... You can find her works on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Theoni-Pappas/e/B001K7YRT2/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1490386350&sr=8-1). I also recommend The Number Devil and the Man Who Counted. There are a bunch of picture books I recommend to even high school students. I wrote about a few here: http://algebrasfriend.blogspot.com/2016/08/mtbosblaugust-read-to-your-math.htmlDelete
