LTL Ep. 1: Teaching in the Age of COVID-19 (ft. Jasmine Lane)

In the wake of the widespread closures of school districts, teachers have had to adjust to the new normal. Erika talked about the disruption with Jasmine Lane, an English teacher from Minnesota who bases her instruction on research and not rhetoric. 

Jasmine talks about how she felt when she heard schools were closing, what her greatest concerns are for students, what bright spots she has found and why it might make sense for students to continue in the fall with the teachers they have this year.

You can listen to the podcast version of the show below:
