I read a lot. What I don’t do so well is share what I’m reading. With students. And staff.
Our superintendent sent out an email asking about interest in a #petk12 book club. As I was the first to respond, it became Catina’s book club. Interesting. Happy to help out.
And with staff, I’ll through out a quote or title I think they might enjoy. I’ve handed staff members books that shouted their name or classroom as I read. A for effort Catina, but now what?
I’m changing that today. If you walk into my office or home, it’s clear that I’m a reader. My sharing of titles has been minimal. But I think I need to make the subtle obvious.
Step 2: On Tuesday, I’ll find a good spot in the office to post a cover pic as well. (and repeat Step 1 & 2 as the title changes. Not leaving out professional reading.)
Step 3: Via conversation with our library coordinator, figure out how to get the kids publicizing what they’re reading.
Step 3 is where I need help. Google form that I feed to something visual on website and wiki? Padlet type app for students to share from? Low-tech-style white board outside the office each morning? A handful of shout-outs from students during weekly assembly? Can I include staff with students? Yes, seems logical, but am I missing something?
Any and all ideas & feedback are welcome. Thanks!
