If you’ve been enjoying this design thinking series, you might want to take a deeper dive by checking out Launch: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student. You might also be interested in joining a Launch book club. I’m a huge fan of book studies as a form of professional learning but I also know we all have different preferences in how we engage in book studies. This is why I’m offering three options for the book club.
#1: Book Club on Facebook
Join our Launch book study on Facebook. This month-long book study will start on May 1st. Every few days, I will ask a new question related to the chapter we’re reading together. I’ll also encourage people to post their own questions and generate new discussion. I’ll be limiting this private Facebook group to 100 participants. Just sign up below and I’ll share all the information.
#2: Face-to-Face Book Club
With this option, you can lead your own Launch book club. Access a free Launch guide with questions you can use for a book study within your school. Sign up below and I’ll send you the Launch guide later this week. I can also send you information on bulk orders if you’re doing a schoolwide study.
#3: Self-Paced Book Club on Google Classroom
This option is similar to the Facebook book club. However, this will be an on-demand, self-paced option. I’ll post all the questions ahead of time and you can chime in and join the discussion when you feel like it. I’ll also experiment with using some annotated Google Docs to add another option for conversation. This is ideal for teachers who might want to do the book club in the summer. Look for the course to open by the end of this week.
