Monday Summer Book Club - Unshakeable Chapters 11 and 12

Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher


Have you heard the news? We are doing a book club this summer! Our Facebook Group voted on Unshakeable by Angela Watson. 

(Disclaimer: Affiliate link below. Using it will not cost you anything, but will earn me a small commission.)

This week we are reading Chapters 11 and 12. These chapters focus on "creating curriculum 'bright spots' you can't wait to teach" as well as "incorporating playfulness and having fun with learning."

Get your copy now! Our book discussion has officially started, but feel free to join in any time!

Below are the questions that are in our Facebook Group. 

Chapter 11 Questions - There are definitely areas of my curriculum that I am not excited to teach. For example, I dread teaching area and perimeter. I also am not a fan of science (although I do like the experiments). This chapter focuses on finding these areas and creating 'bright spots' to make these tedious lessons fun for you. 

Question 1 - What areas in your curriculum or in your day do you struggle with the most? 

Question 2 - How are you already creating 'bright spots' in your days or in the tedious lessons you have to teach?

Chapter 12 Questions - Whether or not playfulness comes easy for you, it does have a place in the classroom. This chapter offers concrete strategies you can use in your classroom.

Question 1 - Would you consider yourself a "playful person?" Why or why not?

Question 2 - What strategy, either from the book or your own strategy, would you like to try in your classroom?

There is no right or wrong answer. Please feel free to be candid about your responses. If you would like, answer them in the comments below or join our Facebook Group (click on the words or search Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher Book Club). The Facebook Group is a private, closed group (for those of you that want a more close knit group for the discussion). Either way you would like to participate, I hope to hear from you!
