Video Interview: Jasmine Lane on Teaching in the Age of COVID-19

I had the distinct honor of speaking with the phenomenal and always thought provoking Jasmine Lane, an English teacher from Minnesota who bases her instruction on research and not rhetoric. We talk 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.

She also makes book recommendation and expresses a strong opinion about Young Adult fiction.

Grateful to all who watched live and weighed in with thoughtful comments—below is the link for those who did not catch it live.
