Dedicated to Teachers


Book Talk Live with Kelly Gallagher and Penny Kittle

180Days_BookWelcome to our Book Talk Live with Kelly Gallagher and Penny Kittle, authors of 180 Days: Two Teachers and the Quest to Engage and Empower Adolescents.

The idea for this book started with the question, "How do you fit it all in?" And their very honest answer is, you don't, and that's the point. As the year ebbs and flows, plans change based on students' needs. Kelly and Penny teamed up to connect their classrooms from California to New Hampshire to co-teach for a year. They spent their time planning, teaching, and revising together to come up with an entirely new approach to classroom learning. This became two teachers and their quest to engage and empower adolescents, as their subtitle suggests.

Penny and Kelly join us in this video from our Book Talk Live on Facebook Live:
