Today, I was at the Christmas Tree Shops (which if you've never been, you need to go!! Tons of awesome stuff for the classroom or home for CHEAP!!) and found the movie "The Emperor's Club" (on sale for $4.99, I mean really, how could I pass that up?!) in the movie bin. I thought I had seen it before but could t remember for sure.
As I mentioned before, I have also been doing some educational reading as well. Two of my colleagues have been telling me about this book written by Rafe Esquith called "Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire" and so I decided I'd get myself a copy and see what all the hype is about.
I have only just started reading this and I can already tell it is truly going to challenge what I have always thought to be "effective" in terms of discipline, management and student achievement.
I have also picked up the book, "Waiting for 'Suprrman'" by various authors, edited by Karl Weber. I know it's been made into a movie but not having seen it, I'm curious as to what it holds.
Stay tuned for reviews of these books. Oh, some of my coworkers think I've give insane BUT I've been doing TONS of crafting for my classroom already (thank you Pinterest!!) Check back in for a possible "Monday Made It" post of all my goodies :)
Have a wonderful night!
