Seven Must-Read Books About Education: 2015 List

Seven Must-Read Books About Education: 2015 List | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Two thousand and fourteen was a great year for books. I read all the books on last year’s list, “Seven Must-read books about education for 2014” and wrote reviews for each. The books were thought-provoking, refreshing, well worth the investment of my reading time. I’ve complied a selection of titles for 2015 and share the top seven related to education. Collectively the books provide unique and broad perspectives on education. Three titles fall outside the education discipline though each provides insight worth exploring. The list is based upon reviews of several published lists featuring best books overall and best-selling education books of 2014 by The New York Times, NPR, The Chronicle of Higher Ed etc. as well as readers comments on GoodReads and Amazon. Like last year, I’m aiming for thought-provoking reads, and quality over quantity.

Gulp!  You are not going to forget this website.  I fully support Mitch Joel. I am so thankful for his countrless free podcasts and blogs that have helped me through the years. I hope that his new book sells well.  In Cntrl-Alt-Delete, Joel discusses the many reasons why businesses and workers both need to reboot our careers.  I've enjoyed his insights via about five podcasts this past month as he is making the circuits among many power bloggers in our industry. The experts love this guy and I can see why!  I believe that I have heard every one of his podcasts for the pase four years.  I highly endorse his opinions.

Lately, I've been curious about Google+ Hangouts, since I was invited recently to hang out with a well-known author for one hour as she answered questions.

 

She made herself available to her readers to answer any question they wanted to ask. I thought, "What a unique way to connect with your fans."

 

And it was.

 

I didn't actually attend the hangout session, but it was recorded, so I was able to download an MP4 of the entire session, as well as a PDF of the session.

 

How can you use this for your book promotions? Let me count the ways:

 

o Meet and greet - Say "hi" to your READERS

o Find out WHO they are

o Award PRIZES while you're live to create excitement!

o FOLLOW UP with each and every person who attended

o Invite them back again when you release a NEW BOOK

Yes the correlation between generating a community of readers and a community of writers is interesting

"No two students are the same, no two students process information the same, and therefore students deserve to have information presented in multiple ways, students should be encouraged to showcase their knowledge in multiple ways, and students should be motivated in multiple ways." Melissa tells the story of UDL and includes video of UDL and the three principles along with the tools that can help support a diversity of learners in the classroom:   the CAST Lesson Builder, UDL Curriculum Self-check and Book Builder.
