Blog watch: A couple of reviews

September 10th, 2009

Several fellow bloggers have written about Stenhouse books in the past couple of weeks. Here is a taste of what they said about the books and how they use them in their classrooms:

At A Year of Reading Franki Sibberson, Stenhouse author and blogger, wrote a review of Jennifer Allen’s new book, A Sense of Belonging. Franki recounts her mentor at the beginning of her teaching career: “She treated me as a colleague–a colleague who she enjoyed working with–from Day One. But more important was the fact that she got to know me as a person.” Don’t forget to join our Ning book study group that will begin discussing Jen’s book Sept. 17.

Another review of Jen’s book is at She’s the Apple of my Eye, where mother-daughter teachers Dayle and Courtney blog about Courtney’s first year of teaching.

Ruth Ayres from The Two Writing Teachers read and reviewed Liz Hale’s book, Crafting Writers. “I started reading and was soon totally immersed in the book and the work Elizabeth was describing,” Ruth writes.

Sarah Amick from Amick’s Articles wrote about The Daily Five and The Cafe Book, both by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser, “The Sisters.” She recommends reading The Daily Five first and gives a chapter by chapter overview of The Cafe Book.

Amanda from Snapshots of Mrs. V read Jeff Anderson’s book Mechanically Inclined over the summer. “Initially, I thought that there would not be a whole lot new as far as background information. I wanted the book for the additional lesson ideas; however, there actually was a lot of additional information as well,” writes Amanda.
