I was asked by a student teacher what books should she read to help shape her as a teacher.  She said it can range from inspirational to instructional-based.  I answered her, but I thought it would be better if I turned this question to this community.

What is your ALL-TIME favorite (teacher/education) book?  What type of impact did it have on you?

A total of nine new books were added to the Teacher Recommended Books page.  These books were recommended via email by student teachers and experienced teachers.

One resource that I thought was beneficial was the ASCD SmartBrief.  It’s a free service that ” brings you the K-12 education news that really matters. (ASCD) editors handpick key articles from hundreds of publications, do a brief summary of each and provide links back to the original sources.”
