Transitions – Workbook Introduction

We also want to invite you to contribute meaningfully to our understanding of what works and what doesn’t. Our commitment in this moment is to learn and to share what we learn.

Based upon the stories that we hear about things educators actually try, both successfully and not, along with the lessons learned from the real experiences of re-opening  (and then possibly re-closing and re-re-opening), we will compile a more comprehensive response to the moment to be published by Jossey-Bass in the Summer of 2021.

If you are open to being a part of this effort we would be extremely grateful.
