Professional Development on Facebook? Why haven't I heard about this sooner? What a great way to make professional development accessible! Recently, I found an online book club sponsored by the Michigan Reading Association. During the month of May, they will be discussing the book Readicide by Kelly Gallagher. Facebook users are invited to "attend" the event, where they can post their reactions to the book, network with other educators, and read posts from the book's author. I have been posting my own responses to the first couple of chapters, and I look forward to reading the posts of others. I hope that this book club is successful enough to encourage the MRA to continue hosting this online professional development forum.
