The #educoach Twitter Chat has been in existence since July 27, 2011. The weekly chat is devoted to the topic to instructional coaching and leadership. We meet each Wednesday at 9pm CST. Sumer has proven to be an excellent time to read, learn and grow with each other. We will be starting our summer book study in mid-July. All are welcome.
First, we need to decide on the book we will read together! For the past week, we have been taking book suggestions. Voting begins today and will run through Tuesday, July 5th. The winning book title will be announced July 6th. The book study will begin either July 13 or July 20 depending on how long it will take for participants to secure the chosen book.
Please take a moment to vote for the book title of your choice. One vote per person. Scroll through the poll to see all choices or go to this link.
Here are links to the books in case you want to check them out prior to voting. (Note: One title was left off due to recently reading as an #educoach group.)
