Assessment and SBL:


  • Translating the NGSS for Classroom Instruction. Rodger Bybee. This will be my reference as we transition to NGSS in my district. And the more I read, the more valuable I think this book is, especially to someone who needs to learn how the standards read first.


Project-Based Learning

I’m lucky enough to have both Suzie Boss and Jane Krauss in my backyard. They are accessible and always willing to share. Suzie collaborated with my school last year with our PBL grant, funded by NBPTS. Read all of these books, and stay tuned for a new one.



  • Teacherpreneurs: Teachers who Lead but Don’t Leave. Barnett Berry.  The title bothers me a bit, but there’s great wisdom from people I know who are amazing teachers and visionaries for our profession. It has always puzzled me why admins feel threatened by teachers who advocate for our profession. It would really be most flattering to admins if they recognized great work and reaped the benefits of working with accomplished professionals. No one’s trying to make them look bad.
