Resources for Educators
- Accessibility — posters on how to design for students with various challenges.
- Diagnostics — A few diagnostics I've developed for incoming students.
EnhancedReadings — readings to help students build background knowledge before (or in some cases, in place of) grade-level readings.
- Know Your Rights — information to help teachers and families understand what schools are required to do to support students. Mostly about English Learner students at the moment.
