Friday Freebie - 3 books to get you pumped for 2018
If you are like me, you may have a pile of books on your bookshelf that you would like to read. Well, this week's Friday Freebie is my list of 3 books that I have hand on my bookshelf for about 3 years now!
Drive by Daniel Pink: I love reading about what motivates people to do and not do things. TBH I started reading this book about two years ago, and I need to pick it back up again.
The Teacher's Journey by Brian Costello: I was honored to be selected to review this book before it came out on the market. It follows the journey of several teachers and how they became teacher super heroes. If you want to find out your teaching super hero story, I recommend this one!
Future Driven by David Geurin: I was given this book at a local Edcamp last month by a new friend and colleague, Roger Davis. I have yet to dive into this book, but I know that it is going to push my thinking and challenge me to do more in the classroom.
* Bonus book *
This book provides preservice teachers (or teachers in training) a voice in the channeling of their own inner edumagic! It challenges the thought that “teaching” begins only after certification and college graduation. It brings to life the exciting news that students in teacher preparation programs have value to offer their future colleagues even as they are learning to become teachers! It gives positive examples, advice from preservice teachers, helpful tools, and plenty of encouragement for preservice teachers to learn, to dream, and to do amazing things in their programs. It will inspire, encourage, and ignite that passion within preservice teachers to show you that YOU have the edumagic within you, but it is up to you let it out!
