I loved the fairly new book Teach Like a Champion by Doug Lemov. It highlighted some things that I already do like infusing joy in the classroom. Also, it gave me some quick new techniques like calling on students to repeat another student's answer that I feel have greatly improved my instruction (and my principal loved).
If I were to choose, I would pick Growing Readers by Kathy Collins. By the way, I love your posts (and all of the other teachers posts) on Top Teaching, I get so many wonderful ideas for my classroom. :)
