As our minds turn to plans for the fall, many districts are making “what if” plans for whether and how to return to in-person teaching. Guest host Kelly Kluthe brings guidelines for Missouri schools to consider how teachers can make use of safety recommendations in their classrooms.
Later, we read an article about using critical analysis of online teaching to create humanizing pedagogy. We look at how to approach making inclusive spaces for online learning.

We drink Spiritual Unrest and Hold onto Sunshine, from Treehouse Brewing Co. in Charlton, MA.
Thanks to Beer Vizier Aaron Mathieu for providing the beers for this episode. His notes:
Hold onto Sunshine 7.6% ABV Milk/Sweet Stout
This is very nice example of a milk stout. Silky, creamy mouthfeel roasty malt notes that you want from a stout that linger in the finish. Way too easy drinking for the ABV.
Spiritual Unrest 8% ABV Milk/Sweet Stout
This is a sweet milk stout. Coffee more prominent in the nose and then comes back in the finish. There is a lactose sweetness in the middle. As it warms, the coffee flavor comes through along with a subtle blueberry flavor in the finish. The blueberry eventually have an alcohol note too.
