What Is The Best Education-Related Book You Read In 2017?

| 5 Comments

 

Every year, I ask readers of this blog to share – either in the comments section or on Twitter – the title and author of their favorite education-related book, along with one or two sentences explaining why they chose it.

It’s that time again!

Please share them with me no later than December 15th. Then, I’ll compile them in a post to share. With luck, I’ll publish it before everyone has done their holiday shopping so you can put some of them on your gift list!

Here are posts from previous years:

  1. Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies: Teaching and Learning for Justice in a Changing World by Django Paris and H Samy Alim

  2. Teach like Finland by Timothy D. Walker; I found the ideas refreshing and insightful and have incorporated many of them in my 24th year of teaching.

  3. Creating Cultures of Thinking by Ron Ritchhart

    Published in 2015; I’ve read it three times, getting more out of it each time. It’s the whole picture of learning: group culture, purpose, beliefs, language, time, modeling, routines, interactions, environment and use of space. It’s deep and transformative, not at all gimmicky. Not about a specific curriculum or content, instead applicable to all we do within education. Inspiring as well as practical.

  4. Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning
    Mar 7, 2016
    by James M. Lang

    Applying research in short term “doable” and long term classroom strategies.

  5. Troublemakers: Lessons in Freedom from Young Children at School by Carla Shalaby
    —i’d Buy it for every teacher if I could. The idea that the kids we label negatively are the “canaries in the coal mine” and can alert us to the toxic in the school system/environment…creates a real path toward change and truly doing right by kids and families. Nearly every passage was quote worthy.
