After July 19th when Ruby Payne's book is finished, are there future plans for another book circle for CPE credit?

Odd Girl Out

The book is about relationships between girls and bullying.

I have begun reading There A reNo Shortcuts by Rafe Esquith.  It is excellent and would love the book circle to have us read additional books by this author.  Some have suggested Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire.  I think it would be a good one to do.

Great book ideas!  Thank you and keep your ideas coming.  Looking forward to discussing Rafe Esquith's book with you beginning this Friday, September 10th!

My teammate told me the other day that her sister used to work with Rafe Esquith and that his books are "somewhat fictious".  She said that he has embellished his stories to make them more profitable and "amazing".  The reason he is able to do Shakespeare and that his "inner city" students are engaged in everything they do in the classroom is because he teaches the Gifted and Talented students.  Yes, they may be low economic students, but they are still intelligent and typically do love learning.   Even though I am still reading There Are No Shortcuts, I definitely have a different perspective of him now.  I am hoping that even through some of the lies, I will be able to learn something about myself and my teaching that I can use. 

Some great authors of eduction that would make great book circle discussions:
Eric Jensen Teaching With The Brain In Mind

Alfie Kohn Punished By Rewards: The Trouble with Gold Stars, Incentive Plans, A's, Praise, and Other Bribes

Jonathan Erwin  The Classroom of Choice: Giving Students What They Need and Getting What You Want

Alfie Kohn The Homework Myth: Why Our Kids Get Too Much of a Bad Thing

Marvin Marshall Discipline Without Stress Punishments or Rewards : How Teachers and Parents Promote Responsibility & Learning

I just saw Eric Jensen speak at the TXASCD conference in Houston. I thought his approach to teaching kids in poverty situations was enlightening. Has anyone read any of his books?

He shared two titles with us at the convention:
Teaching with Poverty in Mind
Teaching with the Brain in Mind

I'm curious if anyone has used any of his strategies. How did they work in your classroom?

How do you feel about the topic of bullying? Do you know of any good book titles to share on this topic? Has anyone ever heard of or read the book The Bully, The Bullied and the Bystander by Barbara Coloroso?

The book on the topic of bullying sounds good. I just ordered You Can't Say You Can't Play and was going to suggest that one. This stuff starts so early. 

I also think Lemov's Teach Like a Champion would be a practical choice.

I haven't heard of that specific title, but I think the topic of bullying would be a fantastic one to tackle.
