Tonight during #Teacherwellbeingchat on Twitter, we started discussing what we would be doing in the holidays.
It turns out that a few of us teachers are planning to do some education related reading – so we thought it would be fun to have a summer bookclub.
Here is how I propose it will work:
Choose an education related book to read. As well as books about pedagogy and schooling, you could of course choose books that assist your productivity, well being, leadership, teamwork etc.
Starting in the first week of January ,we will meet on Twitter to share:
- What you are reading and why you chose it?
- What is the key message so far?
- What inspires you?
- What challenges you?
- What will you bring from it into your workplace?
Those of us who are willing, might also blog about the books and share the links.
This would be a weekly meeting throughout the January holidays.
It might also be a good idea to set up a wiki where we can make a list of the books, links to the books and perhaps have some more extended discussions.
So what do you think?
Are you interested in joining our #summerbookclub?
Do you have any suggestions for how it should work?
Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
I’ve also set up a poll to help decide a day/time for our book club. You can vote here. The poll will close in 2 weeks.
Looking forward to reading with you.
