5 Books You Should Be Reading This Summer

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Sometimes reading outside of education gives you a different perspective and helps you think outside the box.
  • As we re-imagine schools in the coming weeks, it’s important to draw inspiration from a variety of sources.  

Welcome to our 2020 Summer Reading List episode! Every year, I curate a list of 5 NON-education books that can inform your work as an educator and help you think outside the box as you plan for the upcoming school year.

This year's list is particularly strong and includes several books that can help you re-design your school culture (especially if you are planning on distance learning next year), be more effective as an organization, tell your vision story in a way that gets everyone engaged and invested in your vision, and solve problems even before they happen. Check out today's episode and then step into summer #LikeABuilder.
