Special Issue April 2020: A New Reality

New Reality, New Ideas

How do we get remote learning right? This EL issue is a concise and manageable approach to the ins and outs of our "new reality."
Brandon Hubbard-Heitz (@bhubbardheitz)
I truly depend on EL. I save every issue and read and reread for inspiration. Thank you for always being there with relevant, thought-provoking, solution-oriented articles.

Thank you for these excellent articles, particularly with special consideration for students with IEPs.

I was in a call with about 20 curriculum directors and chief academic officers from around the Central Ohio region, and they brought up this edition as a valuable and timely resource. I am so proud of our ASCD staff and their hard work in providing solid information to educators during this pandemic.

Meeting SEL Needs Remotely

What a comprehensive piece by Jessica Minahan ["Maintaining Connections, Reducing Anxiety While School Is Closed"] on how to meet students' SEL needs from a distance. I almost feel like I should get a grad credit after reading this piece it was so informative.

Equity Check

This article was everything! ["Why COVID-19 Is Our Equity Check" by Dena Simmons] Our district equity team is using it to guide our conversations. Also, [her] article on racial justice and voice and agency was on point!

April 2020 issue: Deeper Discussions

Digging In With Discussions

Enjoying this month's issue of @ELmagazine, especially the article by Zaretta Hammond on "The Power of Protocols for Equity."
Carl Cruthis (@CarlCruthis)
So many powerful articles in this month's issue about the importance of student discussion! This quote [in Terry Roberts' "Opening Up the Conversation"] really stuck out given the current challenges we are facing: "In the coming decades, prosperity will result from a creative response to complex challenges. In anticipation of that world, students need to think about the curriculum, not just consume it."
Kelly Looman (@MrsLooman)
