Monday Must Reads: Volume 66

It's Monday! For my school, that means it's a distance learning drill day. We are face-to-face Tuesday through Friday. Each Monday, we have a distance learning day to practice learning digitally in case we need to pivot to full-time distance learning. I don't know how those of you who are teaching virtually everyday are doing it. After six google meets in the span of three hours, I am exhausted. So kudos to those of you doing this everyday. I am in awe of you. You are amazing. 

I should really be planning lessons for the rest of this week, but I decided to take a bit of a break to scroll through my twitter favorites from the last twoish weeks. I hope you enjoy this new volume of Monday Must Reads. It's my weekly-ish attempt at capturing the amazing ideas shared by mostly math teachers with a few inspiring science teachers thrown in as well. I hope you find an idea worth using or adapting for your own classroom. 




I've really enjoyed scrolling through Shannon Fusina's twitter feed and seeing how she is modifying her chemistry classes for distance learning. I think we could all learn something from her and her creativity!
