I was alerted to this list by this tweet.
Looking for summer reading? Every teacher should have read Plato, Rousseau and Dewey as a minimum. https://t.co/eEgAoFjxLw

I’m ashamed to say that I’ve not read many in total (ok, it’s one, and I bet you can guess which one). I’ve bumped into bits of the others, and ideas from them. That’s not to say that I have not read other books on education – obviously I have, and currently I’m finishing two that I started last year. I tend to read them more slowly – just as I do everything, as I find I really need to understand their arguments. It’s the same way with books on the philosophy of history. I once spent an entire evening going over one sentence in Developments in Modern Historiography. I did get it, eventually. I’m a slow reader, just as I am a slow blogger!
