Beyond the Book Club

MSTA’s Book Club “Beyond the Book” pairs educators across the state with books that highlight current pedagogy and instructional practices. Book studies are offered monthly or quarterly, giving you more options to accomodate your schedule. Each study participants will explore a book and connect with educators in an online learning platoform. Participants will meet virtually at least once per month to share their thinking, challenges, and collaborate on how to incorporate their new learning into their teaching, classroom management, and/or toolbox.

Participants must purchase their own books.

Registration is required and space is limited. Click view details on the events below to register.


“Beyond the Book” Extended Book Studies

Looking for Career Ladder or PD hours? MSTA’s “Beyond the Book” Club has options for every educator. Educational book studies are a great opportunity for professional development. Book studies open doors for educators to collaborate while exploring new ideas and enhancing practiced ideas. As educators, we love the concept of book studies... but keeping up with everything during the school year while participating in a book study can be overwhelming. MSTA’s “Beyond the Book” Extended Book Studies might be the perfect way for you to get individualized professional development. 
The Extended Book Studies allow participants to complete a book study over the course of two months while providing additional support and resources. All Extended Book Studies are focused on a specific topic – this year, we will focus on supporting student behaviors and trauma-informed practices. Extended book studies are led by Ursulla Wadley, JAG Specialist for Cape Academy in the Cape Girardeau Public School District.
