Read Like Your Hair's on Fire: An Educator's Summer Reading List

Teach Like Your Hair's on FireImage by jilldoughtie via Flickr

In my last post I asked you for some summer reading suggestions for educators. Wow! What a pleasant surprise to see how many people responded with such thoughtful submissions. I'm happy to finally share the results. I am looking forward to picking a few from the list to read this summer. If you responded, THANK YOU!

If you don't see your submission, it's possible that:
  1. You didn't leave your name NOR a comment
  2. You left only a partial title, no author and no URL
  3. You did not provide a URL and I could not find one either
What you'll see here: Title & Author - Survey Respondent (with url to blog), & Respondent's Comments (if any)

@karen,
ummm.... one? LOL

But that's only because I don't get summers off anymore. I do plan on reading a few of these though. See anything that interests you?

Thanks for asking this question and then compiling all the answers. I will now have to print the list and get busy!

Wow, what a list! I think I need to see if I can get some of these as audio books so I can listen while I drive. Thanks for posting this.

Wow excellent list! I always recommend Mosaic of Thought for school librarians beginning the process of national board. IN this same veign of thought, I would add The Collection Program in Schools: Concepts, Practices, and Information Sources by Phyllis J. Van Orden and Kay Bishop (Hardcover - Dec 15, 2001)

Now to see who I can borrow some of these titles from!

Today was my last day of school for this year. Looks like I'm going to be very busy over my summer vacation. I have already started Grown Up Digital and Outlier, but from the look of this list that you were kind enough to compile, I have just started to scratch the surface.

What do you think about starting a wiki that includes a page for each book being read? People could post comments and ask questions to get a dialogue going for an online bookclub.

Lee Kolbert said...

@PNaugle
I was thinking about a way to do something like that, for those who wanted to participate. Not sure a Wiki is the smoothest way. Have you ever seen Shelfari? Check it out. www.shelfari.com What are your thoughts on an EdTech Group within Shelfari?

This is great! Thanks for the comprehensive and impressive list! I cannot wait to read for pleasure and not ill constructed essays! Thank you!

Michelle said...

Thanks for such a great list. I've printed it out - is that old fashioned? :)
Keep us informed about www.shelfari.com.

Kim said...

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to do this. I am looking forward to digging in.

Karen Kliegman said...

Thanks for putting this together. Am ordering the librarian book right now!

Great list...Some I have read and added some to my summer reading list. Can't wait to get started. I am reading Bringing the Outside In by Sara Kajder....Another great read that helps us connect reading and writing workshop to the digital world.

Thanks so much for your list. I was looking for something just like this to help direct my reading this summer. Another book I would recommend that I didn't see on the list is Daniel Pink's A Whole Mind. Even if it is not a "education book", I found it very interesting and can apply some of the ideas in my classroom.

Um, yeh, where do I start? I say this a lot, but I wish I had more time to read. At I've read one of these titles already and have another in my bad ready to go. Maybe I'm only a little behind the 8-ball.

Lee Kolbert said...

@imcguy
Start with me, Chad. I'm going to read, "Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire" first. I'm waiting for it to arrive from Amazaon. Waddya say?

Nice list! I especially enjoyed reading everyone's commentary. A slam poet friend also recommends Mosaic of Thought; it's one of those books that changes you and begs to be revisited. Though it's a Heinemann title, there are a few from Stenhouse on the list. One thing I love about Stenhouse books is that you can browse entire books online when they first come
out not just a sample chapter.
Readicide
is still available online and the first chapter of Tovani's is as well. You might also enjoy the conversation Jim Burke has started around Readicide with Kelly Gallagher at the English Companion Ning

Wonderful list. I am a parent in Canada with Gr3 & Gr1 kids. There are tough behavioural issues in my son's (Gr.3 class) I am trying to learn more about how this can be dealt with from our end. My son is feeling bullied in his own classroom. Wondering what you could recommend. I purchased today the Teach like your Hair is on Fire. We are in a low income, culturally diverse neighbourhood. Thanks for any help you can offer.
