Back to Different

Several articles in this issue grapple with what the 2021–22 school year will look like.

But this issue is not exclusively focused on COVID’s impact. Different can be transformative in good ways, too, as Joseph D. Martin demonstrates in “Motivate, Situate, Evidence, Illustrate.” He outlines a way to move beyond the primary–secondary source binary and suggests how recategorizing sources can open up new, powerful possibilities for students.”
