I have bitten off way more than I can chew when I look at the books I have bought and downloaded to read this summer. Oh my. I thought I would share some of the titles here, and, hopefully, writing this post will hold me a little accountable and help to ensure that I read them (or as many as I can)!
So, in no particular order, here is the list of professional books I have for my reading pleasure this summer. I’ve included the Amazon links below, in case you’d like to read more about any of the books.
Shifting the Monkey – Todd Whitaker – Finished
The Connected Educator – Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach & Lani Ritter Hall – In Progress
Drive – Daniel Pink – In Progress
Getting Things Done – David Allen – In Progress – A colleague suggested that I read this one first so that I might have a chance at actually reading the others this summer. Good idea, Carol!
Hold on to Your Kids – Gordon Neufeld – In progress
Leadership on the Line – Ronald A. Heifetz & Marty Linsky – In progress
What School Leaders Need to Know About Digital Technologies and Social Media – Scott McLeod & Chris Lehmann
Power Questions – Andrew Sobel & Jerold Pamas
The Real World of Technology – Ursula Franklin
Switch – Chip Heath & Dan Heath
Lost at School – Ross Greene
Mindset: The New Psychology of Success – Carol Dweck
Start With Why – Simon Sinek
I’m sure there may be a few titles I am missing, but this is my list of the professional books I hope to read over the summer (this, in addition to a few fiction books I have downloaded as well).
Are there any books here you have read and would like to comment on? Perhaps your comments might help me decided on the order I read each of them (or their priority).
