Here are some particulars to help you as you participate in the book club:
- A prompt or question will be posted here in the blog every Monday morning.
- To receive notifications when posts are made, click Join this site or Follow by email in the bar to the right.
- Respond to our post and/or respond to a comment by another participant each week. The more interaction there is between participants, the richer and more beneficial the conversation will be.
- In order to receive 12 PGPs and be eligible for the $1000 professional development grant (1 will be awarded at the end of the book club), you will need to make a meaningful contribution to every week’s discussion.
- We will typically read one chapter per week.
- There is no official sign up for the book club. Your first week's assignment is to introduce yourself in a comment to this blog post. Just click the comments link below this post and enter your comment in the text box. You will need to be logged in using a Google account. In your introduction be sure to include your name, school and/or corporation, and what your role there is. (If you have any problems commenting, please email Meri Carnahan at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
- Your reading assignment for next week is the introduction and chapter 1, "Why Innovate."
