I am talking with schools to see how they’re responding in the wake of this global pandemic. I invite you to join me for the Coronavirus Chronicles, a series of 10-minute check-ins with educators all over.
Episode 025 is below. Thank you, Shannon Hancock, Rania, and Trinabh, for sharing how the International School of Amsterdam in the Netherlands is adapting to our new challenges and opportunities. This was my first episode with students and of course you were FANTASTIC. I appreciated hearing how ISA has been implementing a full International Baccalaureate program via distance learning, and your Stories That Move project that we discussed is an awesome example of student agency that makes a difference in the world. For those who are interested in learning more about the project, here are some resources from ISA students Rania, Trinabh, Leilani, and Zozi:
- Stories that move
- Email and screencast for faculty
- Student-created lesson 1 for grades 6-11 (with modifications for English as an Additional Language students)
- Student-created lesson 2 for grades 6-11 (with modifications for English as an Additional Language students)
- Student-created lesson for grades 3-5
- Stories that have moved me: Honest dialogue on honest dialogue
See the complete list of episodes, which also are available as a podcast channel on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. If you and your school(s) would like to be featured in the Coronavirus Chronicles series, please get in touch.
