Monday Summer Book Club - Unshakeable Chapters 7 and 8

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 7 and 8. These chapters focus on "doing your part to create a positive school culture" as well as "taking charge of your own professional development."

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 7 Questions - The chapter puts the responsibility of the school culture on individual teachers. Don't feel overwhelmed by this. This may just mean being the positive one in a sea of negativity. All it takes is one person to make a difference in the culture of a school.

Question 1 - How is the current culture in your school (no judgement!)?

Question 2 - How do you (or can you) help improve the culture of your school?

Chapter 8 Questions - Most schools provide their own professional development for teachers. This may not (and probably isn't) all the pd needed for you to be a successful teacher. This chapter gives you concrete tips on to find the pd you need. 

Question 1 - What kind of pd does your school offer? Is it quality pd?

Question 2 - Where do you look to find other pd for yourself? (Hint - Talking to other teachers in the group and reading this book is a form of pd.)

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!
