Announcing the Coronavirus Stories Archive

Please Share Your Stories

On behalf of the WAC Clearinghouse we ask,

What Are Your Teaching, Learning & Personal Experiences in the Time of Coronavirus? 

As fellow educators and students, we’ve been in a frenzy reading and sending emails and participating in local listservs about some of our hardships—educational and personal--as we work our way through school closures, the conversion of our face-to-face classrooms to online instruction, basic necessity shortages, bills, housing and dorm evictions, to name a few.

We would like to collect and archive our stories about this important time. The Coronavirus Stories Archive ( allows you to share your experiences—anonymously or otherwise—so that we can understand how, as a community, we reacted, adapted, and came through the pandemic.

On a national and international level, the stories saved in this archive will serve as a resource for our community of scholars, teachers, and students to learn more about the impact the pandemic has had on us and on our larger communities.

As one of our colleagues observed, if we don’t collect and preserve our reactions to this crisis, others writing at some future time will define what they were. We hope you might contribute your stories so that we can understand this important moment in time and learn from our collective experiences.

Please feel free to share this project with as many teachers, students, administrators, and listservs as you can.
