Collaboration.  Empowerment.  Student Leadership.  Are these things that you are developing in your students?  This summer, I'll be blogging my way through the book "Learn Like a Pirate" by Paul Solarz.  My guess is if you are an avid blog follower and Pinterest lover like I am, you probably spend a good chunk of your summer working on making your classroom better, fine tuning, and perfecting what you do.  This book is an excellent way to begin developing a classroom that is student-led!

So what's with the Pirate theme?  Pirate is an acronym for:
Peer Collaboration
Active Learning
Twenty-First Century Skills

I would love for you to grab a copy of this exciting book and read along with me!  I'll be hosting a giveaway for you to win a one of a few FREE copies of this book to kick off the launch of this stimulating book study!
