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:
7 High-Impact, Evidence-Based Tips for Online Teaching is from Edutopia. I’m adding it to The Best Summaries Of Research About Online Instruction.
Effective Instructional Models for a Hybrid Schedule is also from Edutopia.
19 formative assessment strategies for online teaching is from Teach Learn Grow.
Tips & Tricks:Teachers Educating on Zoom is from Zoom. You probably won’t find anything new in their advice, but the links to technical instructions for its different features could be helpful.
Simultaneous Learning: Blending Physical and Remote Learning appears on the Teaching Channel.
This is the first time since full time distance learning began that I was actually able to do all my planning for the week just on Saturday, without it taking up the entire weekend. Next up: figure out how to get a better handle on grading

It's been a rough 5 weeks of full-time virtual learning, but I now can say I think students r learning a lot. Clearly physical f-2-f would be better, but our online classes r nothing to sneeze at. Still, big ? is if amount of required planning time to make it work is sustainable

I say hello & wave 2 every student in every class when I let them into Zoom. 2day,I was momentarily distracted by email as I was letting 1 class in. 1 student yelled out, "U didn't say hello 2 me, Mr. Ferlazzo!" Everyone wants to be acknowledged & they notice when they're not.

Number 284 in virtual teaching mistakes I've made this yr: Today, while teaching my ELL class, I assumed that when I talked to students about our "book," I they would understand it was the ONLINE book we were reading. They didn't see the online text as a book& confusion ensued
