ILA Resource Collection: Addressing the Impact of COVID-19 in the Literacy Classroom


The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic had many in education wondering how long it would be before we could return to normal. But as we began to navigate the new “normal,” what we learned is that the only way to move forward is to evolve.

This ILA Resource Collection considers the needs of today’s students, teachers, and other school-based professionals—and what culturally responsive and trauma-informed practices should be carried forth to ensure that literacy instruction not only bridges lingering learning gaps and mitigates residual effects of lost instructional time but also reimagines more equitable possibilities for students impacted by the pandemic.

In short, practices that ensure better outcomes for all.
