I‘ve been a member of the Educational Arm at Asymptote for about a year and I‘m really happy to share our Spring 2019 Educators‘ Guide! If you are looking for lesson plans and ideas for teaching world literature, please check it out! #teachersoflitsy #asymptoteforeducators
I‘ve been busy with the start of the new school year and took a couple weeks off reading, so this is the first book I‘ve finished this month! It is translated from Japanese and explains the ideas of psychologist Alfred Adler in dialogue form.
Usually I follow the same rating system as Gretchen Rubin: if I care about a book enough to finish it, then it‘s a pick! This month, things were different. I did not like How to break up with your phone (too obvious), Adnan‘s Story (too repetitive), The Skin above my Knee (not enough about music).
I‘m really glad to have spent time reading The Warmth of Other Suns and Sisters in Law ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
All picks, but Dreamland Burning and Firestarter might have been my favorites! Books tagged in the comments
