I haven’t written many articles this year outside of blog posts here and for Education Week.
As most teachers understand, the 2021 classroom has taken a lot more energy from educators than it usually does!
Katie Hull and I did finish the second edition of the ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide, and that will be out in early April.
I did write a series of columns this year for The Washington Post, primarily on the pandemic. Here they are:
- A teacher’s deepest fears about 2021: Students who disappeared, covid-19 myopia and six more
- Teacher: What’s missing from calls for summer school to stem ‘learning loss’
- Thirteen things that should happen in schools now — but most probably won’t
- The kind of teaching kids need right now
- The pandemic is affecting the third straight school year — and this teacher is very, very worried
- Teacher: 10 things school districts should do right now
- There was a lot of education news in 2021. Here’s the best and worst of it — by a veteran teacher
I also wrote what I thought was a particularly useful Ed Week piece last spring: Ten Ways I’ll Be Teaching Differently Next Year.
8 1/2 Things That Have Been Working This Year & 6 That Haven’t is another Ed Week column I wrote.
