It's Monday! What are you reading? 8-3-15
It's Monday! What are you reading? Is a wonderful community of readers, teachers, and librarians. Hosted by Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers, participants share their reading adventures from the past week along with their reading plans for the week ahead.
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading, follow my Goodreads page.
I didn't get a whole lot read this week because I'm in frenzy mode to get my proposal written for my master's project. I NEED to get this written before September or I won't be able to graduate in December. In my procrastination mode, however, I did manage to write a few blog posts on my teaching blog last week:
What a hotel manager in Costa Rica taught me about being a teacher
Being openly critical is necessary for our school communities to thrive
Check out my interview with Margarita Engle and giveaway of her newest book, out tomorrow, Enchanted Air
And just for teachers and school librarians, I'm giving away my ARC of Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate over on my teaching blog:
Favorite picture book from last week:
One Family by George Shannon, illustrated by Blanca Gomez
An interesting concept for a counting book: Looking at the many that make up the one.
Currently (still) reading:
The Truth Commission by Susan Juby
Currently reading with my ears:
Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman
