I’m someone who often has her nose in a book well into the wee hours of the night (much to the dismay of my husband). I also love talking about all things education and connecting with others. Reading+Teaching+Connecting= the birth of Twitter (Teacher) Book Club, better known as #TBookC.The goal of #TBookC is to read at least 1 book (does not have to only be on education!) every 1-2 months while engaging with fellow educators and education stakeholders around the globe. Book selections
go out for a group vote at the end of each month.In December, I rallied some of my favorite EduTweeters
, including the amazing @LisaBerghoff
, who kindly offered to Co-Moderate #TBookC (yay!) We put out a vote for a January pick, and in an astounding win, Teach Like a Pirate
by Dave Burgess (@burgessdave
) was selected. Teach Like a Pirate is a Twitter phenomenon with its hugely popular Twitter chat following Monday nights on #TLAP. Sure to engross all with Dave’s extremely contagious enthusiasm and passion for engaging learners, this book is going to be an amazing read!
#TBookC will begin on Thursday, Jan. 8 from 8-9pm CST
