NAAE Virtual Book Club

The 2020 Book Club has ended, please check back in 2021 for the next book club! In the meantime, join the NAAE Virtual Book Club Communities of Practice page and the Facebook page to get notified of updates.

The NAAE Virtual Book Club is a fun way for agricultural educators to personalize their professional development. NAAE members can participate in the Virtual Book Club and earn professional development credit or CEU's.

The NAAE Virtual Book Club seeks to develop agricultural educators in the following ways:

  • build understanding of students' needs as readers by engaging in reading and reflection
  • experience professional development as an engaged learner inquiring into and reflecting on teaching and learning goals
  • engage in deep conversations, layer personal experiences with literacy learning, and probe instructional issues

2020 participants will read Teach Like a Pirate, by Dave Burgess. You can purchase the book at your local bookstore, on Amazon, or on the author's website. Hard copies and electronic versions are available.

Participants will be required to read the book and engage on Communities of Practice in the NAAE Virtual Book Club group, participate in small discussion group conference calls, and complete a Personal Performance Plan. Professional development credit will be awarded at the end of the last scheduled virtual event and after NAAE receives the participant's Personal Performance Plan. This year up to 12 hours of professional development credit will be awarded.
