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:
