Enduring Practices
Enduring Practices From Remote Teaching – After a yearlong crash course in digital tools and remote teaching, a teacher reflects on what will stick in her brick-and-mortar classroom. @sustainiverse @edutopia

Helping Teachers Prioritize Social Emotional Learning – The case for SEL is a strong one. According to Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), SEL helps young people acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, and achieve personal and collective goals. @Getting_Smart

Why Questions Are More Important Than Answers – Briefly put, questions are more important than answers because questions seek and frame and expose while answers, at their best, are temporary responses whose accuracy changes and shift and decays over time, needing to be reformed and remade and reevaluated as the world itself changes. @terryheickedu @TeachThought

Back to School COVID Myths – It’s popular to say that hybrid learning is negatively impacting poor students who generally attend schools with lots of discipline issues.
