2022 Professional Book Study Series

Spring 2022 | Dates and times vary

Our Regional Professional Book Study Series is a powerful way for educators, administrators, parents, and community leaders to deepen their knowledge, join a community of practice dedicated to innovating in education, and directly influence their daily practices at the classroom, school, district, and community level.

This spring, we’re offering three free book studies to our community. All book studies include:

  • A copy of the book
  • Clock hours or continuing education credits for educators
  • Six virtual sessions with colleagues, leaders, and changemakers from across the region, including at least one session with the author

The books were chosen based on the priorities identified by the Region 16 Comprehensive Center Advisory Board, which is made up of educational leaders from across AK, OR, and WA. Each book study is facilitated by expert instructors covering content areas pertinent to today’s K–12 schools. Topic areas include:

  • Equitable classroom practices and collaborations
  • Rethinking data collection
  • Centering students and families to reimagine systems
  • Working toward collective impact in education

Our book studies are designed to help participants work together to interrogate current practices in education and build networks to support systemic change. Our goal is to support participants on their journey to creating equitable educational systems in their communities that center student and family experience. Participants should be prepared to vulnerably engage in conversations that radically reimagine current practices and prepare to leave with a tangible network of support and a plan of action.

All book studies take place for six consecutive weeks, meeting for 1.5 hours per week. We hope you’ll join us!
