Book Study Anyone?

Over the past week, I have eagerly walked to my mailbox hoping a book I had ordered would arrive.  Well, it came today!  Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids by Chris Biffle.  If what I posted about the classroom rules gets you excited, this book is for you!  It is every strategy designed in Whole Brain Teaching.  It's the "how to" guide to implementation.  It's going to inspire you to change the way you teach and give you every resource you need to teach with energy and effectiveness, all the while breaking through to those kids that drive you crazy!

Here's a thought: If you are interested in purchasing the book, we can read it and discuss it together! I know what many of you are probably thinking, school is about to start and I do not have time to read the whole book. The book is structured more like a reference guide; the important information that you would need to start your class off right is at the beginning.  The more complex strategies that you may or may not want to implement further on into the year come later. You could definitely get the basics down in time to head back full steam with Whole Brain Teaching!  It's a super easy read and many of my posts in the upcoming weeks are going to be about the strategies covered in this book!  You can buy it on Amazon used for $7.99.  I bought mine new for $12.71 because I just love opening a book that has never been opened!

Let me know if you are in! You can comment below, post on our Facebook group, or email me. Wouldn't it be great to gain some ideas and resources that you can put in your pocket for the first days of school!
