Participants are responsible for obtaining their own copy of this month's text prior to the beginning of the book study. 

Join our November professional book study tailored for new and veteran teachers alike as we dive into the practical wisdom of "The Wild Card: 7 Steps to an Educator's Creative Breakthrough".

Ignite your creative breakthrough as an educator! "The Wild Card" presents seven transformative steps to unleash your creativity in the classroom. Embrace innovation, take risks, and captivate your students with engaging teaching methods. Join our book study and unlock the power of your unique teaching style to create unforgettable learning experiences. **This book would be best for elementary teachers.

Course Basics:
The Learning Management System, Teachable, is used to house discussion board conversations and group materials. MSTA's "Beyond the Book" Club is facilitated by Nicole Nowlin, a fifth-grade teacher at Lee's Summit School District and MSTA member.

Guiding questions and assignments are posted in the Teachable course. These questions provide an opportunity for participants to share and reflect on the topics and ideas presented in the reading. Teachable courses are by design asynchronous.

Participants complete a Core Concept Assignment. Participants can work on the assignment and complete it at any point during the book study. Assignment details are shared in the Teachable course and are intended for participants to apply concepts learned and discussed during the course to their own classroom.

PD Certification: At the end of the month, certificates for 8 hours of PD will be generated for participants who complete all book study components and emailed through Teachable.
