Distance Learning Community: Supporting Students During the COVID-19 Pandemic 

 #1 Community of 2020

Help us add lessons for distance learning, or share how your community or school is supporting students by uploading resources to share with educators and parents across the country. What resources are you sending home with students? How are you communicating with your students if schools close down? Are there projects you are asking your students to do at home? Join this distance learning community and find new ways to create, discover and share lesson plans, handouts and resources.


How to engage with this distance learning community:

Step 1: Join the Community (select the orange join community button on the bottom right).
