I have a number of regular weekly features (see HERE IS A LIST (WITH LINKS) OF ALL MY REGULAR WEEKLY FEATURES).
This is a relatively new addition to that list.
Some of these resources will be added to The Best Advice On Teaching K-12 Online (If We Have To Because Of The Coronavirus) – Please Make More Suggestions! and the best will go to The “Best Of The Best” Resources To Support Teachers Dealing With School Closures.
Here are this week’s choices:

Summative Assessment in Distance Learning is from Edutopia. It points out that performance tasks make a lot of sense in this situation.

How Keeping a Pandemic Journal Builds Students’ Historical Thinking Skills and Helps Them Cope is from MindShift.
Exploring the Evidence on Virtual and Blended Learning is from NYU. I’m adding it to The Best Summaries Of Research About Online Instruction.
I’m adding this tweet to A BEGINNING LIST OF THE BEST RESOURCES FOR LEARNING ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS:
