In a very close vote, the book selected for Winter 2016 is Peer Coaching by Pam Robbins (ASCD, 2015).
I am excited to read this with you. Our school is preparing to implement this professional learning practice in mid-March. The information gathered here will be helpful. The related discussions with other school leaders will enhance this text and our work.
One change to the School Leaders as Readers group: We will be using a Google+ Community instead of the Goodreads Group. While I liked the connection between a literacy-based social media tool and the online discussion component, it seemed like other readers were not engaged in using it to share their thinking regarding our fall book.
To access our book club, click here. You will be asked to request access to the group, moderated by me. If you want to post your thinking in the group, you can do so right within the community as text, link a blog post, or add multimedia related to the text. For example, I plan on sharing the peer coaching materials we have developed for conducting them in our school.
Looking forward to learning together! Conversation starts anytime. The timeline for reading this text will be shared within the Google+ community.
