Summer Reads

I am loving the fact that so many of my colleagues are sharing great educational books…books that have caused them to contemplate their teaching habits and practice.  Two such book sare The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller and Comprehension Connections by Tanny McGregor.  I’m looking foward to reading these books this summer.  I’m also interested in Robert Marzano’s Formative Assessment and Standards-Based Grading.  I would love to hear about books you plan on reading this summer.  I love that summers gives me the opportunity to become a much better teacher!
