Summer Time - #Cyber PD Time!


      I'm excited to link up with Cathy Mere at Reflect and Refine: Building A Learning Community, Laura Komos at Our Camp Read-A-Lot, and Jill Fisch at My Primary Passion are hosting #CyberPD.  We'll share our plans for reading Professional Development books, and then Cathy, Laura and Jill will choose one for us to read together in July.  


         I know I'll probably have to add one to my stack, because my stack includes the past two summers' reading choices, Conferring by Patrick Allen and Opening Minds by Peter Johnston.  I'm going to a one day workshop Thursday to be with Peter Johnston so am excited for this "extra" learning in addition to reading his books.  And I'm attending the All-Write Conference at the end of next week so who knows what more I'll find that will inspire.
       Thanks Cathy, Laura and Jill for this.  Looks like a terrific experience!

Here's my stack!


The list, if you cannot read the photo:

       Opening Minds - Peter H. Johnston
       No More "I'm Done" - Jennifer Jacobson
       Conferring - Patrick Allen
       Side by Side - Heather Radar
       The Power of Pictures, Creating Pathways to Literacy Through Art - Beth Olshansky

NOT IN THE PHOTO!  Just received Kate Messner's Real Revision- a must read too!

Looking forward to seeing everyone's choices!

  1. Linda,
    I'm so glad you shared your stack. You have a lot of great titles here. I need to check into The Power of Pictures. I haven't heard of that one.

    Have fun at All Write! I wish I was able to attend. Thankfully, I know everyone will tweet the highlights.

    Cathy
