I’m adding this list to All My 2019 “Best” Lists In One Place!
The best book I read was Bandwidth Recovery: Helping Students Reclaim Cognitive Resources Lost to Poverty, Racism and Social Marginalization by Cia Verschelden. You can see a two-part interview I did with her for Ed Week.
Here are choices from readers (feel free to add more in the comments section):
