In early Spring 2020 I was approached by a publisher asking if I would like to write a book about hybrid teaching.
I was thrilled at the opportunity, but as I began writing I realized that the information within this book was needed immediately in order to prepare teachers for the upcoming school year in a COVID world. Whereas the publication date wouldn't be until 2021.
My goal in writing this book was first and foremost to help teachers help kids.
That is why I published an abridged version of my book FREE as a PDF download, at the time my goal was to get 30 readers... as you might imagine, in the summer of 2020, the download number far exceeded that.
After the release of the survival guide, the publishers asked if I would still be interested in releasing a published version, this time focusing on what teachers might be able to learn from their experience during COVID hybrid teacher and take back with them to the classroom. So that's what I did!
If you've already read the survival guide, you'll see lots of new content and chapters in this book including sections called, "Bring it back to the building" where I describe how to translate online activities to in-person activities.
And new chapters, such as "Keep Design in Mind," "Executive Functioning," and "Social and Emotional Learning."
If you found this book or the survival guide helpful, please spread the word on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Reddit, via email to your district or wherever your online teaching community is.
