I am new to my position as a middle school instructional coach and have enjoyed the school, students, and culture of my new school. It has been such a rewarding experience.
I was talking to my assistant principal about an idea I had that wasn't of interest in my previous district. I wanted to start One Book, One District. She was all on board!
We hashed out our mission and vision and some action steps, she shared it with district level personnel, and it looks like we are going to get moving on this!
We are a K-8 District so I'm thinking we may have to do two books, one for the middle school and one for the elementary kids. I'm guessing we will want the same theme. Some book titles that stand out to me, but I'm afraid a majority of kids have read are Out of My Mind and Wonder.
So, I guess I'm looking for ideas on book titles and activities. What have you guys done that has worked? Thank you for reading!
