Revisiting My Favorite Teaching Books

by Jen Moyers (@jen.loves.books)

After four years of working in instructional technology, I'm teaching English again, and so I'm beginning to revisit some of my favorite books about teaching (and, specifically, teaching English, reading, and writing). For those of you who are teachers—or parents or other adults helping children outside of school—here are some books to check out.

Another thing to check out? Our new Teaching Tidbits episodes! We launched this new series last week, with Sara's focus on own voices books.

I'd love to know: what books would you add to my list?

Thanks for this list. Some of these books look like they might be good for students themselves to read. . .am I right? (I've never read any of them.) I've been wanting to find good books about writing especially for my 2 high schoolers because they gobbled up _Sister Bernadette's Barking Dog: The Quirky History and Lost Art of Diagramming Sentences_ by Kitty Burns Florey. When they liked it, it made me think, "Hey, what OTHER similar books might they enjoy that will get them thinking about language." Do you think any of these would fit into my plans?
