Dear white people, For days you’ve asked me what you can do to help. I’ve finally found an answer. Let your guard down and listen. https://t.co/74SVv8XOqp
If you or someone you know needs a primer on why #BlackLivesMatter, your #WhitePrivilege, and why all of the protests, rallies, and riots are justified, I suggest you turn to children’s books. They’re used to explaining complex topics in terms the youngest understand.
As a middle school educator, I have students that run the gamut of comprehension. Some can interact with more adult material and some need it much more simplified. This thread breaks it down perfectly and will help me in reaching my students. #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/N7JeDXVDrF

Week 5 - Virtual AP Academy: Is social justice education an inherent part of my leadership & my school? HIT THAT RT https://t.co/zWnqqEdaBp
A4: I am already working hard in my district to make sure other teachers know how to use a variety of tech tools so they can better reach their students. I’m also trying to have more of those difficult equity conversations because in rural MO it needs to be heard. #crazyPLN https://t.co/1Yc365xAe7
A3: It all comes back to education. We need to find ways that encourage families to be more involved in their child’s education. It won’t look the same in every district, but we need parents to be involved and to understand how important education truly is. #crazyPLN https://t.co/XSQMH8x5xo
A2: This is hard because this situation has made the inequities in many areas so obvious. I do think it needs to start within districts. There needs to be more PD at the individual level regarding equity and then actionable steps to make that learning visible. #crazyPLN https://t.co/NJllBgZDza
Good morning #crazyPLN! I’m an 8h grade science teacher from Missouri and excited to learn this morning!
"Distance learning has pushed us to reflect on teaching practices. Q1: Moving forward, what teaching strategies would you get rid of and what strategies would you keep? #CrazyPLN https://t.co/CpcVPhm5RN
A1: One big thing I’m going to try to get rid of is the adherence to a strict pacing for students. I would really like students to have more autonomy in their learning where they can work at their own pace and move forward when they can show mastery. #crazyPLN https://t.co/FBsETnO0MS
A4: I’ll be incorporating more activities that are self-paced, even going to far as to allow some students to move forward in units once they’ve shown mastery. I don’t know what it’ll look like yet, but I want students to have more say in their own learning. #EduGladiators https://t.co/W0hXjwoDzV
A3: I’ve renewed my love for crochet and for completing puzzles. It’s going to be hard when we return to school, but I’m going to have to go back to that need for a schedule. I’m going to have to make the time to do the things I love. #EduGladiators https://t.co/MwMNKwlljs
A2: The two I’m going to be focusing on are equity and #edtech. I liked to think I was good about meeting the needs of all learners, but this reality has shown me that I have a lot of work to do. I’d like to incorporate more edtech to make learning more accessible. #EduGladiators https://t.co/ynB4J7KoFi
