Summer Reading List 2013

My virtual bookshelf is overflowing! So how do I decide what to read THIS summer? I have no idea but here are some books that made my list and why:

Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success by Phil Jackson -  LOVE Phil Jackson! Read Sacred Hoops a few years ago and loved it so I am sure this is a great book too.

Readicide: How Schools Are Killing Reading and What You Can Do About It - Sounds interesting and I do think we take some of the fun out of reading.
Season it With Fun & The 7 Secrets of Motivating & Inspiring Your Team - These are re-reads and I am adding activities to my calendar as I go so I don't forget.

Literature Circles: Voice & Choice in Book Clubs and Reading Groups - What are we going to do with all our high readers? We tend to teach to, or pay more attention to our lower readers. I want to be able to help my teachers with the high fliers.
I'll try to remember to update you at the end of the summer whether or not I read all these or chose some other books.
