New Book Out: Building Thinking Classrooms

In the spring I posted on my blog that I was working on illustrating a book coming out this year. And this week I got to hold a copy of the book in my hands and celebrate with the author and many Math friends with a virtual book launch!

Receiving my copy of the book! Don’t mind the unbrushed hair straight out of the tub LOL.

If you’re reading my blog then I likely don’t need to convince you of how amazing the Thinking Classroom framework is. In short, it was an overnight game changer for my classroom. It got my applied level learners solving problems, collaborating with their peers, talking about Math, succeeding in the course & even enjoying Math a little it more!

The book looks great in addition to being chockablock full of amazing teaching tips based on careful research. The team at Corwin did an amazing job with this book. I am so thankful to Peter Liljedahl, the author, for including me in this project with him!

If you wish to purchase a copy of the book you can do so from Corwin’s website here.

The author, Peter Liljedahl, announced at the book launch a new website dedicated to all things Thinking Classroom!
https://buildingthinkingclassrooms.com
It includes his first blog post titled Thinking Tasks for Online Teaching.

Last but not least, I’m hoping to get an online book club going shortly so we can all read & discuss the book together on Twitter. If this is something you’d be interested to participate in, please fill out this form to get notified of the details.

Let me know what you think of the book in the comments below!
