Our CTQ Collaboratory colleague, Meenoo Rami, founder of the wildly popular #engchat, has written a fascinating new book that is already creating quite a buzz. Thrive: Five Ways to (Re)Invigorate Your Teaching. The book devotes a chapter to one of my favorite topics: the role of mentors in the teaching profession. The other four chapters address Joining and Building Networks, Keep Your Work Intellectually Challenging, Listen to Yourself, and Empower Your Students.
She recently announced on Twitter (naturally) that a sample chapter ( the one about mentors) is now available for download.

She’s also just done a really insightful interview on NWP Radio about the book and her experiences with forming #engchat and becoming a connected teacher.
Endorsements for Thrive read like the Who’s Who of English/Language Arts instructors today: Jim Burke, Will Richardson, Chris Lehman, Carol Jago, Penny Kittle, Troy Hicks, Donalyn Miller, and NWP Director Elyse Eidman-Aadahl.
The full book will be published soon, and I for one, can’t wait. I’m looking to join a book club chat–maybe right here in Collaboratory–on this one.
