Summer Book Club: Education Edition

In between catching up on your fun reading – The Fault In Our Stars, The Goldfinch, or Gone Girl (if you’re really behind) – and those writing projects you’ve been planning to start, make some time to reflect on this past semester and year and check out one of these Top 10 Books on Teaching. We’re all suffering a little “dire predictions for legal education fatigue,” right? Let’s make a commitment to read something inspiring about teaching and learning this summer.

James M. Lang’s list, published recently in The Chronicle of Higher Education, includes some oldies but goodies (What the Best College Teachers Do by Ken Bain) as well as some newer titles to refresh our teaching goals and commitment like Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning by renowned cognitive psychologists Henry L. Roediger III and Mark A. McDaniel, along with Peter C. Brown, published this year. Make It Stick is definitely on my reading list this summer.
