Review: Comfort Detox: Finding Freedom from Habits That Bind You

Comfort Detox: Finding Freedom from Habits That Bind You
Comfort Detox: Finding Freedom from Habits That Bind You by Erin M. Straza
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Simultaneously challenging and encouraging. The author doesn’t resort to guilt tactics, rather she inspires the reader to a deeper, more meaningful life than seeking personal comfort and avoiding risk. This is one to read slowly and “chew on.” I’ll need to return for a second or third read; I feel like there’s much more wisdom to be gained, here.

Classroom Management in the Digital Age: Effective Practices for Technology-Rich Learning Spaces by Heather Dowd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This quick, intensely practical read will help teachers adapt their teaching practices to a 1:1 setting. However, it will also be helpful for a teacher looking for new ideas for how to incorporate technology and devices in a classroom setting while keeping students engaged in the task at hand.
