Welcome to the 2021 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge! Wow, that was some school year. What did we just do? Let’s reflect.
It has been a long time since March 2020 and hopefully, you have had a chance to reflect with peers, family, or friends. But if not, this blog challenge is your shot. Sharing our reflections can be part of our debriefing process. Let’s share the experiences that many of us struggled with and triumphed over. Let’s consider what to retain from this year and what to let go together!
Share the idea of blogging with your colleagues as a way to process the full year of multiple formats. Take the ideas of the friends in this challenge and hopefully build a future teaching repertoire prepared for multiple formats!
Describe relationships with those you taught this year.
