Moving Beyond Teachers and Bosses

Seth Godin describes the need to avoid doing the minimum of what you think is expected.

Key phrase, 'If your boss is seen as a librarian, she becomes a resource, not a limit.'

So, what are you reading, Spring 2011

So, what books are you currently reading? Over the break, I read E.B. White's, This is New York, his wonderful essay about life in the big city in the 1940's. I continue to read, Being Wrong, by Kathryn Schulz, about human error, learning and our beliefs. This one is great, with insights for what I do as a teacher.

Also on the bedstand with bookmarks are Keith Richards' Life, the autobiography of the Rolling Stones' guitarist, and Dave Eggers’ collection of The Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2010, short stories, essays, and other pieces, including work by Sherman Alexie, Kurt Vonnegut, and Stephan Colbert.

What about you?
