Maybe your school has spring break. Maybe you have an extended break. Maybe you are planning for some online delivery of instruction/contact with your students. Here is a collection of resources for you to peruse.
If lists make you crazy because you have to make decisions, think about your needs first. What do you want? What do you need? What supports are you looking for that will enable your students to engage with some academics and yet have a life?
Maybe then you need some “Author” resources, Drawing with Jarrett, and 1 professional resource?
