Summer Reading

June 30, 2010

A couple of years ago, the education staff at the DMA decided to form a monthly reading group to keep up with the many books and articles that relate to teaching and learning, works of art, and art museums.  Since then, we’ve met once a month to discuss a reading over lunch.

Here are a few of my favorite books from which we’ve read.  I hope that you find something interesting to add to your summer reading list!

Play: How it Shapes the Brain, Opens the Imagination, and Invigorates the Soul by Stuart Brown, M.D.

Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow by Chip Conley

Art as Experience by John Dewey

Tell Me More: Listening to Learners Explain by Eleanor Duckworth

A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers will Rule the Future by Daniel Pink

The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki

Evocative Objects: Things We Think With by Sherry Turkle
