SHIP RULES



  1. This book study is VOLUNTARY (and hopefully fun!!). You are in no way required to read this book.
  2. A successful voyage will include input from all of you mateys. Whether you're a landlubber or an old salt, your contributions are valued.
  3. Each session will require about 30 minutes of reading before we gather. Don't be a scallywag; come on time and prepared to share and learn. Otherwise, you might have to walk the plank! :)
  4. HAVE FUN! This book is all about how to become a better, more energetic, more joyful, more passionate educator. Some parts may resonate more with you than others and that is perfectly fine! Take what pieces of information work for you and use them. The rest, you can toss overboard!

GET THE BOOK

The first 10 buccaneers to sign up will get their personal copies of Teach Like a Pirate before we leave for Labor Day.


All you other pirates will have to wait until we board the ship on September 13th.
