Remote Learning Resources for ELA Teachers

If the last few years are any indication, there will likely be times in the future when you’ll have to take learning online. As we all know, that’s easier said than done. Adapting English language arts lessons to the remote classroom can be challenging, especially when circumstances suddenly change with little notice.

At Prestwick House, we want to help you tackle remote learning with meaningful ELA lessons that build critical skills rather than just give students busy work. Whether you’re teaching online for one day or one year, these downloadable lesson plans, digital programs, and other materials will help keep you and your students on the road to academic success.
