Tasty Text Tuesdays- Teach Like a Pirate

No more pencils, no more books, no more students' dirty looks! :)

What's a teacher supposed to do with his or her time during the summer? Have a book study!

Have you ever seen a book that just screams, "I'm so good, you'll gobble me up!" Well, this book spoke to me! Welcome to the newest segment of General Delk's Army- Tasty Text Tuesday!

If you're a fellow teacher blogger, there is a good chance you've seen other blogs talking about the book Teach Like a Pirate. In fact, that's where I got the idea to read it for myself. I came across the blog Math Coach's Corner where she went through the book. I gotta say, it looked really neat!

So, here's the deal... we are going to do this Clifton Hills style! It's informal and not mandatory, but I promise it will be a lot of fun! We will officially start in July since we have another book study that is both formal and mandatory from our administrators. And, since it is in July it will be fresh in our minds for August!

Here's the outline for all of you who want to get a head start:

July 1- Part I: P, I, R

July 8- Part I: A, T, E

July 15- Part II: The Third Circle, Crash Course, "I like to move it, move it", Long Live the Arts, What's in it for me?

July 22- Part II: All the World's a Stage, Stand and Deliver, Advanced Tactics, Around the Edges

July 29- Part III: Building a Better Pirate (all)

I hope you'll chose to join me! I look forward to comments and discussions!

Pirate Joke of the day:
What's a pirate's favorite letter?
