Ali’s Book list of summer reading for 2021

Currently I am in the middle of:  Coaching for Equity by Elena Aguilar (which is fantastic!) and I am looking forward to finishing this one!

Quotes/Concepts I like already:

  • “Human beings are challenged by a paradox: we are social animals wired for connection to other humans, and we are wired to sort people into categories, withdraw into our groups, and fear what seems different from us.  We ache to be seen in our full humanity, and fear of what we don’t understand pulls us back from seeing the complex humanity of other people.”  (p. 4)
  • “Educational equity means there is no predictability of success or failure that correlates with any social or cultural factor- a child’s educational experiences or outcomes are not predictable because of their race, ethnicity, linguistic background, economic class, religion, gender, sexual orientation, physical and cognitive ability, or any other socio-political identity marker.” (p. 6)
  • “Coaches should never be used as enforcers, reporters, or evaluators.  This approach demeans the field of coaching and makes teachers rightfully suspicious of coaches… Research has found that coaching is the most effective form of PD for teachers.”  (p. 32-33)
