2019 Summer Reading List: Recommended Reads From the New Classrooms Team

June 4, 2019

Summer break is upon us which means educators everywhere will have an opportunity for a brief change of pace from their school year schedule. This also means there will (hopefully) be some time to relax and enjoy doing things you love. Our team at New Classrooms has put another list of recommended books and podcasts covering topics from social emotional understanding to practical ways to manage a classroom. We look forward to diving in to some of this content and we hope you enjoy as well!


By: Tara Westover

This award-winning memoir is written by Tara Westover who was born to a family of survivalists where she did not experience formal education until she was seventeen years old. Defying the odds, she sought a path to education and was accepted to Harvard and Cambridge University. This is a fascinating read as Westover reflects on her path to formal education as opposed to the “real life” vocational education dictated by her family.
