Fun Summer PD Opportunity for Educators - The Easiest Book Club, Ever!

If you know me, you know that I am always exploring new learning opportunities. I get a bit too excited when I find something unique and this PD opportunity has gotten me very excited. I love everything about it!

Rushton Hurley, Participate, and ISTE Affiliate ICE have joined forces to create a new Summer Book Study and it starts today! 

The book study is connected to Making Your Teaching Something Special: 50 Simple Ways to Become a Better Teacher (Volume 2) which follows up his first book Making Your Teaching Something Special: 50 Simple Ways to Become a Better Teacher (SomethingSpecialEDU)

Here are the details from Rushton's post.
Starting in mid-July, join colleagues who will take a few minutes each week to join the easiest book study ever. It's an opportunity to find little things that will make you better and connect with others committed to being the best teachers they can be.
Rather than being asked to read dozens or hundreds of pages, each week choose from a set of very short chapters in Making Your Teaching Something Special. Look at ways to improve rapport with students, how to approach assignments and assessments, delivery of instruction, collegiality and professionalism, and the logistics of making great learning happen for all students.
An idea or a technique will spark discussions with others, allowing you to explore that part of you that is at its best when teaching. It won't take a lot of money, or even a lot of time, but it will require taking part to see what can make you better as a teacher.
It'll be the little things that inspire you. We ask that you explore, share, improve and be inspired.
Want to get started today? Join the ICE Portal to connect with other educators and access the discussion topics each week. You can also visit this page where links to collections, discussions and more will be added each week!
