On the Cover

Several articles in this issue grapple with what the 2021–22 school year will look like. With debates raging on many fronts, from so-called “divisive concepts” in the classroom to mandatory masking, this school year is going to be different for teachers and students. 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.”
