I've obviously been posting a lot of tips from teachers who are dealing with the school closure crisis, and sharing my own, as well.
And there's a lot more to come, including a video where I talk about doing remote teaching with English-language learners, and several other series appearing in the next several weeks, including ones on:
* Reports on what has worked and not worked after one month of remote teaching
* Reflections from students on how they would evaluate their distance-learning experiences
* Specific posts on teaching literacy, math, science, and social studies remotely
I thought readers might find it helpful if I brought all these past and future posts into one place. I'll also add the upcoming links.
*Start the Year With a 'Primary Focus' on Relationship-Building
Four educators share ideas on how to start a pandemic-effect school year, including by organizing scavenger hunts and having students share and write captions for their favorite photos.
*Steps to Make Your Students Feel Welcome This Fall
Three teachers explain how they are going to start the COVID-19-affected new school year, including by sending videos or letters to students before classes begin.
*Classroom Activities to Start Your Online or Hybrid New Year Strong
Katie Hull Synieski and I share a book excerpt offering ideas on building relationships as our online or hybrid school year begins, including question starters and "show-and-tell" activities.
