Good morning from Maine where it certainly felt like winter this week. We had snow flurries every morning and some afternoons this week. My bike riding has become an indoor activity. And all the leaves have fallen from the trees except for some stubborn oak leaves.
This week my school was 100% remote, again. While I feel comfortable teaching online I know that a lot of my colleagues and readers here don’t feel the same way. If you have a question for me about teaching online classes, please feel free to email me.
As I do every week, I’ve compiled a list of the most popular posts of the week. Take a look and see if there’s something interesting and helpful in it for you.
These were the week’s most popular posts:
