This post is a part of the Slice of Life challenge which is hosted on the Two Writing Teachers blog. The month of March the challenge is to write a blog post a day.
Every week I participate in the It's Monday meme which is hosted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts. It's a chance to take a step back and reflect on what I have been reading this week and to think about my plans for the week to come.
Books I Finished This week:
Books I am Currently Reading:
I am about halfway through the book Mindset by Carol Dweck. I am not too surprised by what she is saying in the book since my Master's thesis included many of her articles in the literature review. I was curious about this book after hearing Dweck speak at the Learning Forward conference last summer. I am glad I requested this one from the library because I definitely am enjoying the examples given. I am again rethinking how I can bring this knowledge to my students ASAP because I can see some of the behaviors of fixed mindsets within my classroom every day. I also am continuing to listen to The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. As I have said every week so far, I am absolutely loving this audiobook. I love the interesting and original ideas in the book as much as I love the way it is being read.
Books I Will Read Next:
I will start Unwind by Neal Shusterman tonight. This will be one of the books I read for the dystopian challenge. I have had it on my TBR pile for a long time and I am really intrigued by the premise. I also will probably read Splendors and Glooms or Three Times Lucky or both. I would also like to get to some nonfiction books this week. Possibly The Great Fire or The Great and Only Barnum. I am not sure how many books I will get to because I have parent-teacher conferences this week too. I guess we'll see how the week goes.
Happy Reading! What is on your list this week?
