Getting Colleagues Excited About a Professional Book Club
Find Your People
This is a book for administrators and teacher leaders. It is a perfect book to encourage conversations about inspiring transformational change in a school.
Consider someone you would like to invite to read the book with you. Copy pages 3-4 and slip it inside a note with an invitation to read the book together. (If easier, you could text the invitation.)
Share Matt’s article “Feedback is Overrated: First Focus on Building Positive, Trusting Relationships” and have a conversation. If there is interest and energy around the topic, suggest reading Leading Like a C.O.A.C.H.
Takeout Book Club
Consider a creative approach to book club like Heather Fisher shares in her article “Takeout Book Club.” In Heather’s school she organizes a book club during lunch and arranges for take out lunches. You won’t have to worry about people wanting to join book club if takeout lunch is part of the deal!
