- how many days per week I might see students
- what % will be virtual versus what % will be in the school building
- what the 'rules' will be for remote-learning this time around in terms of grading, acceptable amount of work, expected reliance on internet devices, etc.
It's the middle of July, and usually at this approximate midpoint of summer vacation I already have pages of plans & potentials for the following school year. New essential questions, revised grading & assessment systems, some primary/secondary source possibilities, etc. Not yet, though! What is the point when I don't even know...
Who is this flipping guy?!
