Pirate Treasure: Resources & Hooks #AppSpinners

The #TLAP fleet and crew have grown exponentially since my first reading of Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess. You definitely should put this amazing book on your summer reading list. It is filled with inspiration, laughs, and captivating ideas to make your classroom a memorable experience for your students. And as we all know, engaging typically equals greater learning.

Twitter introduced me to "Captain" Dave Burgess and the #TLAP crew. So many crew members have been inspired to write books expanding the original pirate code. DBC, Inc books provide a wide range of inspiration and resources for all levels of educators. These educators are on fire for learning and helping fellow educators, but most importantly doing what is best for students. After reading several of these books, you will realize that you want to revisit important key points, ideas, and activities. So... why not create an app spinner for these wonderful books?!

The problem is keeping up with the speed at which these new books are written and released. Teach Like a Pirate Edu Resources Part 1 and Part 2 app spinners include books I have read, but there are so many more in the pirate bookcase. Most of these books also have a Twitter hashtag (#) and chat. I included them on the app spinner for each book where applicable. 

Teach Like a Pirate includes several chapters devoted to presentational hooks to reel in your students to your lessons and content with a WOW factor. Perfect for a Hooks app spinner! Spin away with twelve of my favorite #TLAP hooks. There are more than thirty discussed in the book that will no doubt lead you to brainstorming your own unique hook ideas!
