So What?

This is one of the first questions I learnt from reading most of the books Jim Burke published.  Even my ELL students learn this very early on in my courses.

Why have I decided to write a blog about books that I order and push carefully onto my shelf until I can get around to reading them?

Well, it’s all about my professional growth plan for this year.  I now have the chance to read through my unread list of books.

This is where I will comment on the books and lift ideas, strategies etc. that I can use in my class.

Who knows where this will take me.

One thing I know for sure, students will be at the center.

To paraphrase J.B. yet again (you’re going to hear a lot about him):

How will these books/blog posts/teaching videos/articles and conversations  help me teach well tomorrow?

  1. A great self professional development activity. You should share with a select group of experienced colleagues so you can critique each other and watch each other grow.
