Each week, I publish a post or two containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
Of course, this is a crazy time for “classroom” instruction….

Here are this week’s picks:
Rubrics and the Dehumanization of Education appeared in Medium and is a bit over the top, but does make some thoughtful points about rubrics. I’m adding it to The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use).
This is a nice collection of graphic organizers. I’m adding it to Not “The Best,” But “A List” Of Mindmapping, Flow Chart Tools, & Graphic Organizers.
Your Roadmap for Teaching Controversial Issues is from iCivics. It’s free, but you have to quickly register in order to download the materials. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles On How To Teach “Controversial” Topics.
The Bill of Rights Institute has just published a free online U.S. History textbook. I have not yet been able to view it, though, so I have no idea about its quality. In order to view it, you have sign up on that link, and then register for a platform called OpenStax. That site might have the most difficult registration process that I’ve ever experienced on a website. I finally got through it, and was told I might get access in five days or so.
I have been the offense in this sequence during lessons I've taught. https://t.co/QyV7oA6M6t
