Beacon Press (the publisher of my book, The Hardest Questions Aren’t on the Test) put together a great blog that compiles the summer reading lists of education authors. Click here to see what books I enjoyed this summer (many of which are from Boston Arts Academy’s summer reading list!)

In talking about my summer reading, I also describe my dear friend and mentor, Vito Perrone, who passed away this August. The Coalition of Essential Schools posted this tribute to Vito’s life and legacy. Vito was a true inspiration to me and I will miss him more than words can say. I highly recommend reading his books A Letter to Teachers and Teacher with a Heart to inspire your practice of teaching and learning.
