I swore that this summer, I was not going to build a "TBR" pile. I was just going to pick up any book I wanted and read it.
That was then....
Now, I have TWO TBR piles going and I don't see it stopping any time soon. Ughhh....
Tomorrow, I will facilitate a class on growth mindset with several teachers from our district as a part of our summer PD. This is the text we will be reading. I love Ricci's practical suggestions and her clear explanations of the research behind growth mindset.
This book was made for explaining growth mindset to students. I read it to prepare for tomorrow's class, but know that it will be one of the first books I read to my students this fall when we talk about growth mindset.
I'm reading Paper Towns in hopes of getting my teenage daughter to read it before the movie comes out next week. I'd have to admit that I am having a tough time with it though. I find it to be so much like Looking for Alaska and there are lots of other books I want to get to. I'm considering abandoning it.
I've been having a rough time getting my writing kick started this summer. The craziness of the end of the school year got me out of habit. Last summer, I read The Right to Write by Julia Cameron and found so much inspiration in it that I knew this book would help me. It basically is a 12 week "course" on how to restart your creative self. There is one chapter dedicated to each week with activities and reflections.
