Our choices: Summer Reading 2013 – The Art of Questioning

My previous post, Summer Reading 2013 – Flyer and Choices, describes our summer reading plan and choices.  We offer choice of book and choice of platform, when available.  Here’s what and how we selected to read:

My favorite new communication about faculty learning and our reading comes from Rhonda Mitchell (@rgmteach), an avid reader.

“Just so you know, I am putting my name on the list for Make Just One Change because I don’t have that book.  I’d like to participate in the Embedded formative assessment discussion.”


We have invited faculty to blog their notes and ideas on Flourish, our community blog.  The 4 As protocol will serve as our framework for note taking and discussion of the books when we return in the fall.  I think (and hope) that by sharing what we read on Flourish through the summer will encourage reading and will help with the fall discussions.

As far as instructional design goes, I’m now wondering if our teams for the book discussions should group readers of the same book or different books? Are we going to discuss the book or the art of questioning – or both?
