I have been receiving quite a few questions after my last post about teacher professional development books. It has been a while since I have done a book study, so how about it? How about a little book study on Text Dependent Questions by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey?
Why Text Dependent Questions?
Both Deanna and I have read this book. It is fantastic! I sat down to reread it this summer and thought this would be a great opportunity to chat about best practices. Perhaps you are unable to attend a conference this summer… Life is crazy busy during the summer, trust me, I understand. So we can do this professional development virtually.
How Will It Work?
On June 24th I will layout the framework for the book study. Trust me it will be EASY! No heavy lifting here! Each week I will relay some of my thoughts. You can comment OR BETTER YET… join our Facebook Group! I think we will be able to have more of a conversational exchange on Facebook… plus you can carry on conversations without me! Ha!
Click HERE to find our Facebook Group. Even though our group is called Kindergarten Collaborative, this book study is for K-5… so you can join the conversation… then leave the group in September when we start talking out students who eat crayons and such.
What Do You Need to Do Now?
Nothing really, just order the book. You can find it HERE. Don’t worry if you have crazy travel plans or if you won’t be able to participate RIGHT. ON. TIME. The beauty of blog book studies is you can always go back and read up on things you may have missed. If you want to read up on previous book studies you can find the directory HERE.
That is it! I am excited and I hope you are too!
