#cbadSpotlight September-November 2020

Last year for the 5 year anniversary of #classroombookaday, I decided to celebrate by finding a way to connect educators around some of the same books and also to do more to promote some of the books I most highly recommend, especially from BIPOC creators. I appreciated a chance to share some books I think are important for students to hear and educators to know about, and want to continue with this next iteration of #classroombookaday.

For this second year of #cbadSpotlight, I am making a couple of adjustments. First, I will be spotlighting 4 books each month, so you have a weekly selection to connect to what others doing #classroombookaday are sharing. I also figured out one of the reasons I was having trouble making my decisions on this year's books is because I was feeling the pressure of having to make choices now for 8 months in the future - having no idea what kind of state we will be in by then! So, in order to be able to be responsive and sensitive to the times we are in, this year I will be releasing titles three months at a time. I hope you find titles you are excited about, some new to you, and ones that will support your efforts with your students this fall!

Here are the first three months of the 2020-2021 #cbadSpotlight selections!

You can shop my lists at Bookshop to support independent bookstores + my work.

If you missed the inaugural #cbadSpotlight books, for the 2019-2020 school year, be sure to check them out!
