This week, in an attempt to alleviate some of my many worries about the fall, I wrote up very tentative plans for each of my upcoming fall classes.
I want to emphasize the word “tentative.” In fact, I’ve already made changes to them since they were originally published.
I still have to write one more post to complete this series but, based on the feedback I’ve received so far, teachers seem to be finding them helpful – even if they aren’t teaching the same classes.
I’m adding this list to Best Lists Of The Week: Teaching Online Amid School Closures, where you can find all my resources related to the school closure crisis.
Here they are:
