Wordless Wednesday: Professional Development Books

These are the Professional Development Books I'm looking at reading for the summer.  What is on your list?  What should I add?


  1. I'm reading 100 Minutes: Making Every Minute Count in the Literacy Block by Lisa Donohue with Beth at Thinking of Teaching. I also need to find something that will allow me to better understand how to teach first graders, since I'm moving from fourth to first next school year!

  2. I also have The Book Whisperer on my list, as well as The Daily 5! I'm still looking for another, so I'm loving all the book ideas that everyone is sharing!

  3. Loved The Book Whisperer! Wish there was something like that for math.

  4. You are going to love The Book Whisperer! It really changed the way I teach reading.

  5. Rereading The Daily 5 and reading Wondrous Words by Kate Wood Ray. Sounds like I need to add The Book Whisperer to my list.

  6. I'm refusing to read any professional development books. Instead I'm just going to read your blog every day in June and get smarter from you! XO

  7. Right now, I am reading Notice and Note. It is a great resource for using close reading. Next up is Word Nerds.

  8. Check out the blog Ruminate and Invigorate (it's not mine). Most recent post is about summer PD books and #cyberPD chat on Twitter. Some great titles there. I'm rereading Daily Five and have another 5 or so in my stack (some new some retreads)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I will make every effort to respond back to you!
