Recommended Reading

(en español)

Following is a list of books in my personal professional development library.  I have categorized them as either Education Texts or Psychology Texts.  These categories are general categories, and you may see, for instance, anthropology texts in the psychology section.  I have given each book between one and five stars based on how valuable I have found the book for myself as a teacher.  If you are a regular reader of this blog you may have a sense of what I find useful in the books that I read, but these are very subjective ratings and not to be construed as universal recommendations for all teachers.

If you have any recommendations for books you would like me to blog about please make a comment on this page.  If I get a lot of recommendations I will prioritize books that I’ve never read but that I have in my library (see the Unread section) over books that I’ve already read or books that I don’t currently own.
