    Dear Colleagues,

    A new volume of Journal of International Social Studies is online This is a special issue of JISS entitled Social Studies Classroom in the Time of Pandemic: Experience, Practice, and Advice From the very beginning of the pandemic, we all have faced the question of how to adapt to new extraordinary circumstances. We in the NCSS International Assembly and Journal of International Social Studies believe that one of the most efficient ways to help is to exchange experiences and best instructional practices accumulated by social studies professionals during the first months of the pandemic. With this idea in mind, we invited colleagues to share their ideas and practices regarding how to respond to the current challenges. Eleven essays in this special issue involve helpful advice on how to design an online class, develop electronic social studies content materials, establish relations with students in online classrooms, and use the pandemic as a way to educate responsible citizens. The authors of the essays are classroom teachers and university instructors. We intentionally planned to publish this special issue before the school year starts to make sure our readers can use some advice in their instructional planning.
