Summer Book Club Follow-Up

This was by far the most popular book club we have had. We had 120 educators make over 1400 comments to the blog posts and, even more importantly, to other participants' comments! Great job! Hopefully you all have found a few ways to get and stay connected this school year.

I sent out PGPs yesterday to everyone who participated in at least 5 weeks' conversations. That email would have come from carnahan@doe.in.gov. I was not able to locate everyone's email address, so if you did not receive a message and participated in 5 or more weeks' discussions, please email Meri at carnahan@doe.in.gov.

Congratulations to Kathryn Evans from Chesterton Middle School who is the recipient of the $1000 professional development mini grant. Another grant will be awarded to a participant of the fall book club.

If you missed the announcement last week, we will be reading Ditch That Textbook: Free Your Teaching and Revolutionize Your Classroom by Indiana educator Matt Miller. The digital and paperback versions of this book can be purchased from Amazon. If you have a group of participants at your school or district of more than 5 people and are interested in purchasing paperback books in bulk, please contact Shelley Burgess at daveburgessconsulting@gmail.com. Our fall book club will kick off on Monday, September 7th.
