BLOG - Resources for Education during a Pandemic
by Alison Noyes, Assistant Director, Emerging America (We will keep this post updated through school closure.)
The nationwide closure of schools across the United States in March, 2020 changed all teachers’ plans. With email inboxes flooded with updates, it is hard for anyone to keep up.
Here at Emerging America, we offer a clearinghouse of information specifically for teachers of History, Social Studies, and Civics. In this post we gather the resources that have been made available to teachers who are rapidly retooling their curriculum for remote learning and enrichment for students sheltering at home.
Throughout the closure, this post will be updated with new additions and changes (we welcome submissions!). Headings for the annotated resources include: Remote Teaching for History, Social Studies, and Civics: Pedagogy • Social Studies Links • Pandemic content to teach • Current Events • Museums and Virtual Tours; Resources for Schools: Compendiums of links • Standards and Resources for PD and IEP & 504 Needs • Online Learning Platforms; History, Social Studies and Civic Engagement Opportunities for Students: Resources • Projects • Community Service; New Dates for Previously Scheduled Events.
