What the Pandemic is trying to teach us
March 31, 2020
I’ve been isolated and out of a job for three weeks now. Getting bored, because this is the first time in my life I had a chance to be bored. End of quarter projects are trickling in and I spend a lot of time on Facebook. But as I feel sorry for my seclusion, I have come to realize what a great learning opportunity this has become. Let me pass on some of the things I am learning from this Pandemic classroom I find myself in:
While I wonder if my students are getting enough learning during this unexpected break, I look at this list I’ve compiled and think, “If these are learning objectives, it would take me a school year to cover them all.” So maybe I should think in terms of learning some life lessons to go along with the language arts lessons I teach them.
