About 30 educators in the Houston Independent School District joined with their leader, Ann Sledge, in a four-week after-school book club at Longfellow Elementary. The goup of teachers, coaches, and principals studied my book, Making the Most of Small Groups. I joined them for a question-and-answer session. It was great fun being part of their discussions about the chapters they read. They worked in small groups to read and choose their 3 most important things learned from each chapter which they then shared with the whole group.

Here are some photos from this meeting:
