Hi All!

 

Here’s your weekly dose of FIVER FRIDAY, a list of what I've found useful or informational this week concerning education.

 

Book I'm reading--

Mathematical Mindsets by Jo Boaler. If I could have every school administrator read one book, it would be Michael Fullan's Coherence. If I could have every elementary teacher read one book, it would be Mathematical Mindsets.

 

Another book I'm reading--

Leading Impact Teams by Paul Bloomberg and Barb Pitchford. Imagine taking the already established PLC structure at every school site and attempting to make it better--that's what this book is all about. 

 

Something I'm excited about--

The newly revamped Google Sites is great. Easy and intuitive, the app is a must for all teachers and students. I made some videos about it here and here, and I've started using Sites to share information from books I'm reading. If you have a PBVUSD GAfE account you can check out those Sites here and here.   

 

Post I'm reading--

Heavy Screen Time Rewires Young Brains, For Better and Worse.

 

Quote I'm pondering--

"If the professor is not capable of giving a class without preparation, don’t attend. People should only teach what they have learned organically, through experience and curiosity… or get another job."--Nassim Nicholas Taleb
