What a Year
I was recently reading the November/December 2020 issue of “Science and Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the “Editor’s Note” column written by Elizabeth Barrett-Zahn. Her article was entitled “What a Year.”
As we move toward the early winter of 2020 we look back at schools following a patchwork of face-to-face, hybrid, and virtual models of instruction. All teachers, at whatever grade-level, have been returned to their “rookie year” of teaching as they struggle to find ways to meet the needs of learners in their physical classrooms and on screens.
