Book Study Number 1!

For those of you who are interested in joining me through a summer of professional reading about math, I have the outline for the FIRST of THREE (that's right . . . THREE!) book studies!  Two will be very informal and done right here on my blog.  The third is a surprise--and more information will be coming soon!

To get us started, we are going to dig in to "The Differentiated Math Classroom" by Miki Murray for the month of June.  Here is my plan!


The book is divided into three sections.  I will be writing posts to match each one--with a quick summary and a list of discussion questions and a call for real-world examples.  I will write the post on the weekend which will give the entire next week for people to comment, read, reread and so on!  How does that sound?

So . . . Here is the schedule!  Please let me know if you are going to participate in Book Study #1--and then work to get your book so you can get started!

Post #1:  Weekend of June 8/9:  Discussion questions around section 1.  The following week will be used for posting!

Post #2:  Weekend of June 15/16:  Discussion questions around section 2:  The following week will be used for posting!

Post #3:  Weekend of June 22/23:  Discussion questions around section 3:  The following week will be used for posting!

If this format works well, we will do something similar in July and early August for the other book, "Minds on Mathematics" by Wendy Ward Hoffer.

So . . . I am SUPER excited to get going on this wonderful way for us to connect about teaching with teachers across the world --and about such an important topic!  Again--let me know if you are "in" for book study #1!

    1. Hi Shanna! Just stop by the blog each of the next 3 weekends to see the discussion questions--then come back during the week to share your ideas and read the ideas of others. It's easy!
