Monday Must Reads: Volume 63

Well, it’s a new week, and it’s time for Monday Must Reads. The world is still an insane place. My school is meeting virtually today to start putting into place a plan to do distance learning starting next week. I still can’t wrap my mind around what this is actually going to look like.

A tiny silver lining? This extra at-home time has given me some time to start working through my backlog of Twitter “likes” that deserve to be shared in the form of Monday Must Reads. It is my hope that you find some useful ideas that you can apply now or in the future in your own classroom.
