22. Pedagogy texts: Use 'em or lose 'em?
There are a few that I've liked, but in truth I didn't actually read them front-to-back (have only ever read excerpts from Wong's First Days of School). Two that I liked that were lessons-based: Mechanically Inclined and Writer's Workshop(Ralph Fletcher). If it's a book full of cool or fun resources, yes; if it's a book about politics or classroom management or learner-types, no. I know, I know... I'm a big fat phony. Other bloggers talk about a certain pedagogy text they just picked up or want to read, and I admire that gumption. But personally, the idea of picking up one of those texts in my spare "me" time just sounds painful.
