December's book: Paperweight by Meg Haston

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.

    *Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

    *What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

    Audience: Special education teachers, service providers, and staff

    Dates: 2/11/2020

    February's book: The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving by Jonathan Evison

    Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

    Participants are asked to:

    -attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

    -come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

    -be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

    *Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

    *What feelings did this book evoke for you?

    *What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

    *Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

    *What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

    Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.

    Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

    Participants are asked to:

    -attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

    -come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

    -be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

    *Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

    *What feelings did this book evoke for you?

    *What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

    *Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

    *What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

    Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.
