What I am Reading

Reading is an enjoyable and important part of life.  A person who never is seen carrying a book is likely to have a head as empty as their hands. Teddy Roosevelt claimed that he read a book a day and Thomas Jefferson, whose personal collection became the foundation of The Library of Congress, said “I cannot live without books”.

Here is what I have been reading in the past few weeks:


Here is what I am starting to read in addition:

    Look like some good reads, Mr. Safranski!

    I like these two books right now:

    The first is “Shifting the Monkey” by Todd Whitaker. It’s an interesting look at management, and can, of course, be applied to classroom management and students. Link here: http://www.amazon.com/Shifting-Monkey-Protecting-People-Slackers/dp/0982702973/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1346173771&sr=8-1&keywords=shifting+the+monkey

    I’m also reading “Einstein Never Used Flashcards” by three authors with very long names I don’t care to type! Great book that doesn’t dismiss rote memorization, but instead begs for an emphasis on play and hands-on development for children. Applies more to younger kids (so far), but has an obvious connection to learning in general.

    Happy New Year!

    Sounds like some solid professional reading, Mr. Little – I would like to look at those when you are finished with them, especially the Whitaker book as you are following him on twitter
