The Art of Education's "Dog Ear" Collection (as of June, 2012)

Every once in a while, I look back at the books I have read and reflect on their influence, usefulness, and "gravitational-like" power to get me to re-read chapters.  The ones that rise to levels of respect above all others become part of my personal "dog ear" collection (named after the fact that the ones I "dog ear" the most usually find their way onto the list).  I also include in this list any Kindle books that i have electronically "dog eared" with bookmarks or notes.

As an aside, I would be remiss to forget two titles that, though not dog eared (since I wrote them), I find useful and frequently refer to - my own two Ebooks:

Paying Attention: Thoughts on Communication in Schools

Foundations: Examining Vision, Beliefs, Mission, and Philosophy

For what it is worth, here is my "dog ear" collection (in no particular order).
