Opening Minds with a book chat and #cyberPD

I'm so excited to be hosting our second annual summer blog book chat along with Cathy Mere and Jill Fisch! So many thoughtful bloggers joined us last year as we dove into Patrick Allen's Conferring book. It helped me so much in my journey with conferring this year! We're looking forward to another great event this year as we explore another great book.

This year, we've chosen Peter Johnston's Opening Minds. We noticed that a lot of us had this book in our summer reading stacks, and it is a title that will apply to a wide audience!

Everyone is welcome to join in the fun, even if you aren't a blogger! You can read the book and participate by:
-using the #cyberPD hashtag on Twitter
-writing your own blog post reflection on the designated chapters
-reading and commenting on blog posts from other participants
-another way that we haven't thought of yet!

For those of us who are bloggers, you'll be able to link your posts on the host blog each week to make it easier for us to find you. The schedule of events is as follows:

July 11: Cathy at Reflect and Refine - chapters 1-3
July 18: Jill at My Primary Passion - chapters 4-6
July 25: Me at Our Camp Read-A-Lot - chapters 7-9
July 26: Twitter #cyberPD chat (specific time will be announced later)

So... what that means is that you have a month to grab a copy of the book and decide how you'll participate! :) The more, the merrier!


  1. Really learned a lot from last year's cyber studfy. This one looks equally as interesting!

  2. This is going to be fun. I need to get my copy ordered. I keep hoping it will be available in Kindle format by July.
