Join us for MCIU’s first book club that values our need to read professional texts and our need to read texts that are just right for our curriculum. A book club to read and discuss books that help us create equitable classrooms where all students feel seen, know they belong and own their desire to read and write. This is a call for passionate educators and literacy leaders to come together to support one another as we learn and grow.
This year we will read and discuss diverse and inclusive texts at the upper elementary, middle and high school levels. Our virtual book club will utilize the core principles of #Disrupttexts to guide the work of building diverse and inclusive teaching and learning practices and pedagogies. Registration is now open and you can learn more about the Educator’s Book Club here. Our conversations begin on October 12, 2021.
Audience: The group is open to classroom teachers, library/media specialists, reading specialists, coaches, school leaders and administrators in grades 3-12.
Dates: Oct. 12, 2021 – June 2, 2022
Time: 3:15 pm – 4:15 pm
The purpose of this group is to:
- Develop a community of readers and build relationships across the region
- Increase exposure to newer, diverse and inclusive books
- Evaluate and provide feedback on texts for upper elementary, middle and high school levels
- Curate a list of resources for district/school/classroom curriculum and instruction
A required book list includes 1 professional text/4 classroom texts. The professional text is a practical guide for using book clubs in the classroom and the classroom texts support a range of reading and genres. The list of titles can be accessed on the registration page.
