Several times over the past years, I’ve posted about reading lists. And, for reasons that I’m still not clear about, I decided to create a sort of ‘ultimate’ reading list compilation. Not saying it’s definitive, for several reasons.
First, it’s only books. That is, published tomes. You may read them online or in print, but they’re books, not articles, for instance. So, Cognitive Apprenticeship isn’t on it.
Second, they’re my preferences. And I have biases. I’m biased towards cognitive perspectives. I lean in to learning. I’ll be swayed by presentations that resonate with me. Likewise towards people I respect. Your mileage may vary.
And, it’s fluid. I’m sure I’ve missed some things. I’ve already added Will Thalheimer’s Smile Sheets book, for instance, as an oversight. New things will cross my radar. I’ll find out certain people got their knickers (appropriately) in a knot since I missed them. And I may drop things, on reflection, or upon discovery of better choices.
Finally, I simply haven’t read everything. So it’s limited to my experience.
And a couple of other things. It’s broken down in several ways, like I did earlier. That is, there are entry level and more advanced, and some are different directions.
And it’s intended to be fluid. If I find more things, I’ll put them in. If I change my mind, that can happen. So, don’t take it as a given.
So, there it is. My reading list compilation. For what it’s worth. Feedback, suggestions, etc all welcome.
