What’s new on the Staffroom Teachers’ Resources Bookshelf?

With the mid semester break fast approaching and especially for those of you wondering what is best for reading under a blanket by flashlight during Nyepi, here is a list of the latest works to be found on the ever more exciting shelves in the staffroom. Feel free to peruse any works that take your interest. Feel even freer to write a comment about any of the resources on this forum.

Hover your cursor over the title of the work and a snapshot preview will give you details about the work. Clicking on the title will take you to where that book is on Google Books- you can read a lot more about each work from there if that is what tickles your fancy. Of course you could just browse the books themselves over coffee or lunch in the staffroom.

    I would be interested to hear other people’s views on Three Cups of Tea. Despite the overwhelming need for improved education for girls in Pakistan, I found it hard to be sympathetic to the ordeals endured by the people of the Asia Institute. Sometimes I felt they were very self-righteous?
