It’s a go! The first annual Teacher’s Professional Book Club has twelve eager members. Here’s the list of selections for this summer:

The Dumbest Generation, Mark Bauerlein

Girls on the Edge: The Four Factors Driving the New Crisis for Girls, Leonard Sax

Integrating Differentiated Instruction and Learning by Design, Carol Ann Tomlinson & Jay McTighe

The Brain that Changes Itself, Norman Doidge

Now, Discover Your Strengths, Marcus Buckingham & Donald Clifton

Books will be distributed on June 30th, and then let the reading begin. We will convene at an undisclosed location for food, drinks, and terrific discussion!

Thanks to School District 8 (Kootenay Lake) and Mr. Andy Leathwood, Director of Instruction, for supporting the professional development endeavour by purchasing six copies of the Tomlinson and McTighe book.

Happy Reading!
