Reading is best when it is fun! Encourage students to build summer reading habits using content that is relevant, interesting, silly, or joyful. Teachers can assign texts or keep tabs of what students are reading on their own.
Spring school closures resulted in lessons being shortened, if not skipped entirely. Drive background knowledge on the topics they missed, with activities that can be teacher-lead or done by students independently.
The COVID-19 Slide all but guarantees that many students will be way behind where they need to be. Leverage collections and low stakes assessments that provide spiraled practice for critical skills across subjects.
Every teacher must be prepared for additional school closures. Give teachers early access to content and on-demand professional learning that will help them transition between the classroom and distance learning—without disruption.
