Reading books reflectively is important for both students and their teachers. While as teachers we are constantly looking for ways to motivate our students into becoming lifelong readers, we often neglect nurturing that process in ourselves. This course can help you make a commitment to dedicate some of your precious time to focused professional reading. The booklists offer a wide variety of current nonfiction covering not only best practice curriculum guides but books on current educational thought, Common Core techniques, athletic endeavors, content area information, special education, psychology, classroom management, inspiration and other compelling subjects of interest and assistance to teachers.
This 15 hour course is presented to encourage educators to carve out quality time for their own professional reading and to share that reading experience with the instructor and fellow teachers. Additional sections of the course will be numbered as follows. 1st Section EDUO 9000, 2nd Section EDUO 9002, 3rd Section EDUO 9003…up to EDUO 9010 and from EDUO 9041-9050. Courses MUST be taken sequentially.
