Is this a hypothetical assignment, or are you actually going to be leading the book study? If so, are there literacy areas that your staff would be more interested in, or maybe topics that they could use work in? I am an obsessive reader of professional books, so if you have a topic in mind, I might know of something.

One that I like that is easy to read and has lots of great actionable recommendations is "Who's Doing the Work: How to Say Less So that Readers Can Do More" by Jan Burkins and Amy Yaris. I work at a school with a large ELL and refugee population so it is really easy for our teachers to fall into the habit of doing all of the thinking and work for the kids. This is a great resource for how to increase independence and accountability for students in all areas of literacy instruction.
