#TBookC is an online Twitter Teacher Book Club dedicated to engaging with educators and education stakeholders around the globe. The goal of #TBookC is to read 1 book every 1-2 months to help us with our lives, profession, and passions. After all, Teaching is a HARD job; We could all use a little relaxation and connection from time to time, no?
#TBookC started the year off right with an amazing read on Teach Like a Pirate or #Tlap by Dave Burgess (@burgessdave) for January. We had so much fun engaging with new educators on this book! Dave Burgess really brings it with enough enthusiasm and passion to engage even the most disenfranchised classroom teacher. You can read about the #TBookC January chat here.
Announcing: How Full is Your Bucket? by Tom Rath
How Full is Your Bucket? is a wonderful, short read for readers of all ages. Based on a simple metaphor of a dipper and a bucket, this book can help change our (and our students’) views and interactions with eachother, as well as help build a more positive and fulfilling world! Read more information about this wonderful book here and/or follow Tom Rath on Twitter @TomCRath.
“How did you feel after your last interaction with another person?
Did that person — your spouse, best friend, coworker, or even a stranger — “fill your bucket” by making you feel more positive? Or did that person “dip from your bucket,” leaving you more negative than before?
The #1 New York Times and #1 BusinessWeek bestseller, How Full Is Your Bucket? reveals how even the briefest interactions affect your relationships, productivity, health, and longevity. Organized around a simple metaphor of a dipper and a bucket, and grounded in 50 years of research, this book will show you how to greatly increase the positive moments in your work and your life — while reducing the negative.
Filled with discoveries, powerful strategies, and engaging stories, How Full Is Your Bucket? is sure to inspire lasting changes and has all the makings of a timeless classic.” -Amazon Summary, How Full is Your Bucket?
We hope you will join #TBookC for this powerful read!
