Two weeks ago I posted a list of books that are essential reading for math teachers. This week I am focusing on general reading that any teacher could benefit from. This selection of books reflects the diversity of my teaching experience in urban schools. Try to round out your knowledge base with some of the books below!
Summer is upon us and you are considering how to best spend this time preparing for next year. My mentor teacher advised me to pick just one book to read over the summer and make a plan for how to implement its ideas in my classroom. I am actually a very avid reader so I want to provide some recommendations for other math teachers whether you teach elementary school or high school.
