We have a book study group that meets at our school. We read a different
book each quarter and meet 3-4 times to discuss. We each get a copy of
the book and a copy is also purchased for our Professional Collection.
Some of the titles are:
        We Can't Teach what We Don't Know by Gary Howard
        Control Theory by William Glasser
        Other People's Children by Lisa Delpit
        Saving Childhood by Michael and Diane Medved
        Because of the Kids: Facing Racial and Cultural Differences in
Schools by Jennifer Obidah, Karen Manheim Teel
        A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
        Odd Girl Out by Rachel Simmons
        Children of the Dream
        Young, Black and Gifted
        Why are all of the Black kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria
        Punished by Rewards by Alfie Kohn
        Enhancing Professional Practice -- Danielson
        Conversations by Regie Routman

And so much much more -- this is just a tiny snippet of the things on
our shelf.
