#svtchat Book List

Awhile back, Dustin Ellis led a chat on books and curated a list that teachers in the chat recommended. It is a great resource to reference, especially with summer break rapidly approaching! Teachers are learners too!


Check out that list here: https://goo.gl/dt01DN


Feel free to add your own recommendations too!

Taking it Even Further

Last newsletter I shared that a number of people who participate in our chats had started blogging. I am happy to report that our number continues to grow! A few teachers attended the NCTM Conference (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) with JC Baxter and returned renewed and reenergized! Two teachers that attended started blogs to record their changes in the classroom as a result. Shout out to Maureen Van Keulen and Audra Steele! Thank you for taking risks and daring greatly!
