What Activities or Lessons Are You Doing With Students to End This Crazy Year?

By Larry Ferlazzo — May 10, 2020 1 min read

The upcoming question-of-the-week is:

What activities or lessons are you doing with students to end this crazy year?


As we approach the end of the school year, I’m going to end the series of 60-plus posts that have appeared here supporting remote teaching with this final question.

We all know, and research reinforces, the fact that how school years end can have a long-term effect on how our students think about schools and learning going forward.

I invite readers to contribute your plans—in 200 words or less—about how you’re planning to end the year with your students. What kind of celebratory or reflective activities or lessons do you have in mind?

The deadline for responses is Sunday, May 17.

You can send them to me, along with a one-sentence biography through one of several ways:

* By leaving a comment on this blog

* By sending an email to me at at lferlazzo@epe.org

* By contacting me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo

I look forward to seeing your responses!
