Some new books coming across my desk.

Mitch Pearlstein’s Broken Bonds (Rowman & Littlefield) looks at family structure but has education implications.

Hugh Price takes a look at what the military can teach schools in Strugglers Into Strivers (Small Batch Books).

Doug Lemov has updated Teach Like A Champion (Jossey-Bass) with a 2.0 version. It’s not just some new stuff, it goes deeper. One wag said recently that when your favorite band puts out a deep tracks album, of course you buy it. So if you’re a Lemov fan, there you go.

Dan Willingham is out soon with Raising Kids Who Read (Jossey-Bass)Classic Willingham deconstruction of the confusion around an important issue.  For parents and teachers.

Liz Arney has a sensible and sober look at educational technology in Go Blended (Jossey-Bass). Based on her work at Aspire Public Schools it’s about the hard work of making ed tech pay off for students.

Jack Jennings takes a look at the history of federal policy and some new ideas for next steps in Presidents, Congress, and the Public Schools (Harvard Education Press). Worth it for the history alone.
