YOU are invited to join the Shake Up Learning Book Study!
I am #superexcited to announce the 2020 dates for the official book study of my book, Shake Up Learning: Practical Ideas to Move Learning From Static to Dynamic. (Scroll down to the bottom to see ALL of the book studies for 2020!)
The Shake Up Learning book was designed for book studies! I couldn’t just write a paper book. I had to make it an interactive experience and give you extra resources to go deeper and make reading the book a dynamic learning experience.
About the Book Study
When: This six-week book study will start on October 1, 2020, and end on November 5, 2020. (See all 2020 book study dates at the bottom of this post.)
Miss the book study? We regularly update this page with new book study dates all the time so come back soon!
Where: This book study will take place in an exclusive POP-UP Facebook group that was created just for this study.
Feel free to participate in the discussion each Thursday when questions are posted, or asynchronously as is convenient for you and your time zone.
How: Each week, you will read 4 chapters (the chapters are short, like mini-chapters) and complete optional challenges.
What: I will post discussion questions from the book, and issue a challenge or choice of challenges related to that section of the book. We will share #booksnaps, ideas, lessons, failures and success, links, and a whole lotta ways to Shake Up Learning!
