Monday Book Club - Unshakeable Chapters 17 and 18

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 17 and 18. These chapters focus on "choosing to love kids most when they act most unlovable" as well as "being truly present and look for the light bulb moments."

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 17 Questions - It's difficult to love all your students! There are some that will make you want to rip your hair out. These are the students that we need to show the most love to, as impossible as this sounds. This chapter helps us to find ways to do this.

Question 1 - Can you think of a student that you struggled to love? If you could go back in time, what could you do to change your behavior towards that child?

Question 2 - Thinking ahead to this school year, what strategies can you try when a student really gets under your skin?

Chapter 18 Questions - I went into teaching for the light bulb moments. I know they get me through the day to day activities that are not so fun. Focusing on these moments and being truly present in your day will create a more positive environment for you and your students.

Question 1 - How can you keep track of/acknowledge the small moments of accomplishment?

Question 2 - Really think about smiling. Do you think you do this enough during the day? Too much? Have you ever even thought about this? Explain.

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!
