Books I Finished This Week:
What I am Currently Reading:
Energize: Research Reading and Writing by Christopher Lehman has already given me great ideas for starting the informational/expository research projects I will be doing. I will be finishing this book soon so that I can begin to use the practical ideas and strategies to help my middle schoolers learn to research well. I am also reading Adventures in Graphica by Terry Thompson because I was curious about the ideas I would find in this book for teaching graphic novels. I love the ideas in this book so far and will be able to apply them in my 8th grade classroom even though the book is written for younger grade level teachers.
On the Horizon:
I want to read All the Broken Pieces this week. I will probably also pick up Before I Fall and Beautiful Creatures. I also should read Unenchanted on my Kindle because I have a student who just finished it and wants me to talk to her about it. I have Ashes, Ashes on audiobook that I will listen to during my workouts this week.
