Summer 2013 Professional Reading List


Thinking about your summer reading?

Each year our Professional Development Committee selects the summer reading for our faculty and staff. The school buys the book of choice — eBook or print version — for each faculty or staff member. When we return in September, we divide into book groups for discussion.

Here are this year's selections:

Whistling Vivaldi - Claude M. Steele
Punished by Rewards - Alfie Kohn
Packaging Boyhood: Saving Our Sons from Superheroes, Slackers, and Other Media Stereotypes - Sharon Lamb & Lyn Mikel Brown
Packaging Girlhood: Rescuing Our Daughters from Marketers' Schemes - Sharon Lamb & Lyn Mikel Brown
Quiet: The Power of Introverts In a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain
Smart But Scattered: The Revolutionary "Executive Skills" Approach to Helping Kids Reach Their Potential - Peg Dawson & Richard Guare

I was fortunate to hear Susan Cain speak at the Inbound 2012 conference in Boston last summer. She is a terrific speaker—warm, funny, and connected. The too-often overlooked introverts have a champion. I read her book and was instantly absorbed. I think this is a great choice, Dane, and that the book will be a quick read for your staff.
