Welcome to Summer everyone! I know we’re all spread out and relaxing (I hope). Edutopia just did a post about Summer Reading and I was wondering what everyone else was skimming through this summer.
These have been on my list for QUITE a while:
Work Hard, Be Nice – About the Kipp Schools (finished)
Imagine by Jonah Lehrer
The most recent Steve Jobs Biography (you know the one with his big face on it…and by that i meant the BIG BOOK with his face on it)
A World Class Education
Out of our Minds– Ken Robinson
A Whole New Mind– Daniel Pink (Reading currently)
Masterclass in Drama Education– MIchael Anderson
Outliers– Malcolm Gladwell (Reading)
Theatre and Education – Helen Nicholson
What about you? Reading anything good?
March is Theatre in our Schools Month as sponsored by the American Alliance for Theatre Educators. I just went to our regional mini-conference in Richmond two weekends ago. It was a really wonderful and inspiring gathering of people and i got to sit in on a great keynote by Theatre IV’s Founding and Artistic Director Bruce Miller and a few really wonderful classes.
Unfortunately there were few conference attendees and fewer non-arts classroom teachers (so much was geared toward cross curricular use of drama). But in honor of TIOS month, i thought i’d post up some Pro-theatre articles and just other things that i find interesting.
Check out this delightful hub on Edutopia. Its called Why Arts Education Must Be Saved.
