Session: February Book Study # 1 - "What Great Teachers..."


Online Book Study

February 2017

Title: What Great Teachers Do Differently

Author: Todd Whitaker

This book describes the beliefs, behaviors, attitudes, and interactions that form the fabric of life in our best classrooms and schools. It focuses on the specific things that great teachers do... that others do not.

Each online book study will be facilitated by an outstanding WV educator. You will be expected to post responses weekly based on assigned readings in the book. You will be asked to apply strategies from the book in your classroom and report back to the forum for discussion and reflection. Your facilitator will guide and support you through this process if you have never participated in an online book study before.

The book study is two months in duration.

Upon registering, teachers will receive information via email about how to participate in the online book study.

A one-time registration fee of $125.00 provides you materials, instructors, and lodging (if eligible) for all Academy sessions you attend during the 2016-17 cycle. Please pay the $125.00 registration fee online or mail to: WVCPD: 208 Hale Street, Charleston, WV 25301.

The book study will begin on February 13, 2017, and end on April 10, 2017. You must register by January 20, 2017, to allow time for your book and course instructions to be mailed to you.
