Great information. My remote learners didn’t like some lessons. The current format is pdf. It would be great if the lesson could also include Google slides. A few of the lessons were too young for 8th-graders.

My class has a lot of behavior issues, so we couldn’t do many activities. But the ones that we could do the students loved!
