In mid-December of 2017, I challenged myself to read more proactively on a regular basis. To keep myself accountable, I decided to post about my reading habits on Instagram, and then blog monthly about the books I’ve read.
As I’ve delved more into inquiry based learning in my classroom, I’ve been collecting any and all resources that can provide specific lessons for me to implement. Recently, I purchased a copy of Reading, Thinking, and Writing About History: Teaching Argument Writing to Diverse Learners in the Common Core Classroom, Grades 6-12 (Common Core State Standards for Literacy). The book has several authors, including Chauncey Monte-Sano, Susan De La Paz, and Mark Felton.
