    I love How to Meet Standards, Motivate Students, and STILL Enjoy Teaching! by Barbara Benson. It's not the bible it was for me a few years ago, but helped me structure my units and courses with PURPOSE.

    I Read It, but I Don't Get It: Comprehension Strategies for Adolescent Readers by Cris Tovani is an excellent choice for facing reading challenges at all levels

    Framework for Understanding Poverty by Ruby K. Payne gave me a sort of lens through which I could start to understand some of the things about my students that absolutely confused my "Boring, Middle Class White Person from the Midwest" self. I also like that Payne clarifies that this is not an exhaustive explanation without exception.

    Holler If You Hear Me by Gregory Michie is not exactly about teaching techniques, but it honestly depicts life in the classroom. In that vein, I also liked Teacher Man by Frank McCourt.

    Why Are All The Black Kids Sitting Together In The Cafeteria? by Beverly Daniel Tatum is very interesting for its perspective on diverse learners.
