Arizona Center for Afterschool Excellence (AzCASE) update for June 10 — Resources & Summer Reading Ideas for Afterschool Professionals

| June 10, 2019

Summer Reading for Afterschool Professionals

We all know it’s important for the youth in our programs to read, but it’s just as important for us adults. As the quote from Charles Tremendous Jones says: “The only difference between who you are today and the person you will be in five years will come from the books you read and the people you associate with.”
AzCASE Staff are reading the following books this summer to challenge our thinking and improve our insight:
  • “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance” by Angela Duckworth
  • “Maybe You Should Talk to Someone” by Lori Gottlieb
  • “Becoming’ by Michelle Obama 
  • “The Secret History of Wonder Woman” by Jill Lepore
  • “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit” by Beth Kanter
  • “Daring Greatly” by Brené Brown 
  • “A New Earth: Awakening Your Life’s Purpose” by Eckhart Tolle
Here’s an article from the NAA with more information and recommendations:
Early Bird Rate, May 1-July 31: $95
Group Rate for 10+ attendees: $95 per person May 1-October 1st
Encouraging Students to Develop Resilience
A framework called Habits of Mind can help students improve their ability to recover from frustrations and get back to learning.
