Here's what I read last week:
120. Amplified by Tara Kelly (finished 7/16) Story of a spoiled girl who runs away from home and joins a band. Definitely YA.
121. The Enemy by Charlie Higson (finished 7/18) A favorite of many of my boys last year. A group of kids must fight for survival against zombie-like adults.
122. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (finished 7/21) A truly original story set on a Welsh island. Too hard to find the words to explain this book!
123. Best Practice: Bringing Standards to Life in America's Classrooms by Zemelman, Daniels & Hyde (finished 7/22) Great professional reading. A must-read for teachers across the content areas.
124. The Trouble With May Amelia by Jennifer Holm (finsihed 7/22) Touching sequel to Our Only May Amelia.
This week, when I'm not in a training, meeting, or class, I plan to:
- Finish reading Kepler's Dream.
- Read Chopsticks.
- Read Student Centered Coaching by Diane Sweeney
- Read Pathways to the Common Core by Lucy Calkins, Mary Ehrenworth, and Christopher Lehman
