Thanks to our state partnership with the New England Literacy Resource Center (NELRC), you are invited to join the online launch and overview of the new fall 2020 issue of The Change Agent, which focuses on the pandemic.

This issue is full of powerful, multi-level writings by students about how they are coping with the virus at home, in their communities, and at work. The Change Agent Editor Cynthia Peters will walk you through the issue and show where you can find activities and discussion questions aligned to the College and Career Readiness Standards that make The Change Agent issues classroom-ready. She will also guide you through the online features (including audio versions of articles) that make this a great resource for distance learning.

Because this webinar is offered through NELRC, please register here, not via the SABES Calendar.
