Book Studies for the Summer

One of my favorite things about the summer is the ability to have time to read a few good books. Although, I typically read nonfiction I do try to break out a few suggested fiction titles. This summer I am super excited about a couple of book studies I am participating in with several of my blogging friends and thought I'd tell you in case you want to join in the fun.

The first book study I am participating is to read {"Teach Like a Pirate"}. The study begins June 2 as a Twitter discussion using the hashtag #tlap2014summerbook between 7:30-8:00 CST. This discussion will help prepare the participants for the first blog posts on June 8 hosted by Lisa Ann Tani our own Who's Who blogger from the blog Okinawan Girl on the topic of passion. Andrea Crawford of {Reading Toward the Stars} on Immersion and Krista Mahan of {Teaching Momster} on Rapport.

Another book study that I am planning is with Nancy from Teaching with Nancy as part of our Teacher Training Bootcamp series. We will share what we are learning about what students are doing during guided reading instruction. We will be taking a look at the {Daily 5} book. This study will take place closer to the end of July so I will post more later.

I've also found other book studies for teachers and have created a minilog of the results. I will continue to add to it as I find more studies to share. If you would like to learn more about these incredible book studies and join in on the fun head on over to my {blog} to take a look.

Enjoy your summer book studies!
