1. Pathways to the Common Core: Accelerating Achievement By: Lucy Calkins, Mary Ehrenworth, and Christopher Lehman
Since I am on the School Improvement Team and the Common Core is everywhere (including in my goal writing for my IEPs), I'll be reading this one first.
2. The Learning Leader: How to Focus School Improvement for Better Results By: Douglas B. Reeves
For my Master's I have to read 10 leadership books, summarize them, and give insight to them. Since this one is also about school improvement, I figure it will kill 2 birds with 1 stone for my Master's and the School Improvement Team.
3. Classroom Instruction that Works: Research-Based Strategies for Increasing Student Achievement 2nd Edition By: Ceri B. Dean, Elizabeth Ross Hubbell, Howard Pitler, BJ Stone, and The ACSD
This is another great book for my Master's, and since many teachers will ask what they can do in their classroom to help all students, this will be a great reference guide. While I don't teach in a "normal" classroom, I am sure there are things in here that I will be able to tie into my resource room.
I'll be doing my own little book study for each one as I am reading, so be on the look out for posts on the different chapters! (as well as other posts too!)
