I’ve just been sharing the resources that I feel to be particularly helpful and adding them to The Best Advice On Teaching K-12 Online (If We Have To Because Of The Coronavirus) – Please Make More Suggestions!
At a certain point, however, it just gets to be too much.
I’m probably approaching that time, and will likely begin reducing the number of related resources I’ll be sharing, though I am definitely interested in publishing guest posts from teachers who are trying to support their students online (see LET ME KNOW IF YOU’RE TEACHING K-12 STUDENTS ONLINE BECAUSE OF COVID-19 & WOULD LIKE TO WRITE A GUEST POST ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCES).

This is a 3 week K-8 EL distance learning plan with NO tech. We took @MrsMCESL's plan and added a week of our own. We made this optional since home life varies and our service mins are different. @FortMillESOL @FortMillSD #ellchat #distancelearning https://t.co/TqRsO3LzCc
