My Students

Can you imagine having 24 hours to prepare your students for distance learning for two weeks, then a month and now the rest of the year. Because of this pandemic, our students have been forced to learn at home. Learning at home away from friends and teachers is difficult but for my seniors this is almost devestating.

Currently my students are home working diligently to finish the 2020 school year, unsure of what lies ahead and wanting to know when they will return.

They are trying hard to manage their emotions and focus on distance learning. Through our daily and weekly emails and Zoom conversations I can see the joy of learning leaving. Distance learning is a sturggle with borrowed and sometimes outdated laptops, or condensed versions on their cell phones or using pencil and paper to complete an essay and then pictures of their work. This is our new educational world for now.

My Project

This year we were thrust into distance learning with little to no planning and while I am doing my best as an educator to provide my students with the emotional and learning support they need, I am seeking additional resources. It essential that I have multiple modialities to reach my students. Some students do better with writing projects, while others thrive with Powerpoints and blogs. Distance learning has caused me to think and plan differently for my students.

We are apart, so I want to make the learning as differentiated as possible to fit the needs of all my students.

I need engaging activities that allow students to be reflective and practice their critical thinking skills. I also need more independent projects that students can work on without their classmates. Teachers Pay Teachers has always been an excellent resource that provides a multitude of lessons, activities, projects and resources. These resources will allow me to plan individualized lessons for my students. The lessons, projects, activities are all created by teacher for teachers.
