I just posted a blog entry about Edutopia's summer reading list recommendations for new teachers (http://www.msteacher2.org/profiles/blogs/summer-reading-list-for-new). It got me thinking about a professional summer reading list for MSP2 members.
Do you have recommendations for a great summer read for math/science educators? Please chime in if so and the MSP2 team will gather the recommendations and share it in our next newsletter!
Currently, I am reading "Managing the madness"by Jack Berckemyer--not specific to math/science HOWEVER each topic he covers can be used to make the learning experience more valuable. Book shows, in a humorous manner, creative responses to grouping, disruptions, and ways to use current technology in the classroom. I have caught myself laughing out loud realizing that his narrative has occured in my classroom. I am excited to implement ideas next year with transitions ifor centers and grouping ideas.
