Congratulations! You made it to the end of the first semester of this unconventional school year. Enjoy your much-deserved and well-earned break.
We encourage you, however, to take advantage of your time off, too, to reflect on your work so far. You’ve likely experienced some great successes in becoming more flexible and creative with your teaching than you ever thought possible.
But when it comes to developing professionally, sharpening your skills, and perfecting your craft, there’s always room for improvement.
We know—from our own experiences with teaching remotely—that one of the biggest challenges for teachers is creating online lessons that are engaging and effective.
Check out these 18 tools that will make online lesson planning a lot easier on you and the learning experience way more meaningful for your students.
