Teaching for Change

 

If you’re not familiar with Teaching for Change, then let me introduce you.  Teaching for Change is a great not-for-profit organization that provides teachers, parents, and students with the tools needed to make schools and learning better.  The goals is to make schools a comprehensive community where students learn to read, write and change the world.  They manage bookstores in one of my favorite Washington, DC area restaurants, Busboys and Poets, which is much more than a mere restaurant.  One thing I like is their annually list of recommended books. They range in scope and content, from fiction to non-fiction, leisure reading to textbooks, this collection would have something to attract the attention of everyone who enjoys reading. I encourage you to check out the 2013 list below.  Happy reading.
