Excused Absences by Douglas Wilson I finished this one over Thanksgiving Break. Still thinking it over. I read it for teacher certification, but Mr. Wilson’s audience really isn’t teachers, it’s parents (and I’m not a parent…). Pretty soon I’ll have to write a response to it so I don’t have to reread it in the next couple of months.
The Seven Laws of Teaching by John Milton Gregory Okay, this was more of a re-read. I’ve read it every Fall for the past four years. This year I have already read it twice, once at the start of the school year, and a second time as I was preparing my 7 Laws Lesson Plan for teacher certification.
One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp This is not part of my required reading for teacher certification but a friend gave it to me for my birthday. I finished it a few days ago. It’s definitely worth reading…very thought provoking.
The White Thread by K. B. Hoyle I LOVED this book. It’s also not a part of the reading for teacher certification but it is on my bookshelf at school. The White Thread is the third in a fantasy series “The Gateway Chronicles” by Ms. Hoyle. If you love Lewis you should definitely pick up this series.
