Last summer, I participated in a book study on the Daily 5 and CAFE books on Lorraine's book study blog: We Read, We Teach, We Blog. This summer we are doing The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller. The book study will take completely on We Read, We Teach, We Blog. Each chapter will have a different blogger who will write a post to get the discussion started. Everyone else will participate by commenting. Last summer, the discussions that happened in the comment section were fantastic!!
Head on over to the blog and make sure you are follower, so you don't miss any of the posts. The book study begins on June 14 with an introduction post by Lorraine. Then chapter one will be posted on June 18th.
The second book study for me this summer is Teach Like a Pirate. Gina and Jennifer have put together a fantastic book study on Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess. Each week, starting on June 11, a different blogger will host one (or two) chapters of the book (with Gina and Jennifer posting a blurb about each chapter) on their own blogs. I am so excited to be hosting Chapter 3 (June 16): Rapport. I am almost finished with the book and have started drafting my blog post for chapter 3.
Make sure to get your copy and step into the conversation. Each week, there will be a linky, which will allow bloggers to write a post and link up to join the conversation. Don't have a blog, NO PROBLEM. The hosting blogger will be guiding the discussion through comments. Comment away and reply to each others' comments.
