This weekly post is a spot for me to list what texts have been tumbling around in my mind and share a few quick notes about each.
To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
I’m rereading Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird in preparation for teaching it later this year to high school freshmen. The last time I read it, I was a high school freshman.
What Teachers Make: In Praise of the Greatest Job in the World – Taylor Mali
Taylor Mali’s “What Teachers Make” poem was an inspirational rally cry to me during my undergraduate studies and early teaching years, especially this recording. I recently finished his book (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) and would say its a “must read” for teachers all across the country.
The Martian – Andy Weir
This book has been on my TBR shelf for years. I’ve been getting into a reading groove and I thought that this one would be a good one to dust off and read. Science fiction isn’t a go-to genre for me, but I have been looking to read “something different” and this might do the trick.
