My Summer Reads 2015

My school year here in India has come to an end and I’m off to pastures new over the summer.  Before we head into the break here’s a quick look into a few of the things I’ll be reading this summer:

The Learning Powered School – Guy Claxton

This was recommended to us by our new school and is essentially a practice manual for the whole school implementation of concepts such as Growth Mindset and character education.

Creative Schools – Ken Robinson

I love Ken Robinson’s work and can’t wait to read his latest books looking at how schools themselves are revolutionising the approach to education.

Schooled – Anisha Lakhani
I’ve had this floating around on my ‘to read’ list for a while but it always seems to slip by – I’m hoping this summer I get the chance to read what is supposed to be a funny and interesting read!

The Peacock Emporium – Jojo Moyes
For a great summer read to relax and forget the world what could be better than a book from Jojo Moyes; although I’ve read her more recent works I’m looking forward to reading The Peacock Emporium immensely!

The Sunlit Night – Rebecca Dinerstein
A summer love romance with travel and adventure woven in – what’s not to love about this book?!

I never know how much of my reading list I’ll get through but with a lovely break coming up I can’t wait to dive into at least a couple of these!
