Back in 2015, Heather shared her Novel HyperDoc for The One and Only Ivan which she created for her middle school English students.

5 Tips for Designing Asynchronous or Remote Learning While real-time class time is often most familiar and preferred, it’s not always realistic given home circumstances.
