The Leadership Education Colloquium Book List for 2008-2009

****This is the current up to date list****

I know you have all been waiting for the list of books we will be reading for the upcoming year so here it is:
August -- Laddie, Gene Stratton-Porter
September -- Jane Eyre, Bronte
October -- The 7 Lesson School Teacher, John Taylor Gatto (Article found in the book Dumbing Us Down by Gatto)
November -- Uncle Tom's Cabin, Stowe
December-- Alas Babylon, Frank
January -- A Shakespeare Play
February -- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen R. Covey
March -- Great Expectations, Charles Dickens
April -- The Fourth Turning, Strauss and Howe
May -- Walden, Henry David Thoreau

All of these books were taken from the 5 Pillar Certification list, so if you haven't signed up for the 5 Pillar program yet, now is the time to do it. You are already reading the books for it so you might as well get the credit for it. Let's share the pain of learning together.

I ordered my own copy of Laddie. Maybe I will be able to get into it a little more if I can write in the book. The library edition just wasn't working for me.
I can't wait until my children start writing in their books. They have always been so opposed to doing it, but I feel like the book is really mine when I write notes and underline important passages.
