What the 2020-2021 School Year Taught Us About Science Teaching and Learning
I was recently reading the May/June 2021 issue of “The Science Teacher” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the section “Editor’s Corner” written by the editor, Ann Haley MacKenzie. Ann wrote an article entitled “What the 2020-2021 School Year Taught Us About Science Teaching and Learning.”
The school year has drawn to a close, although many schools have extended learning into the summer to address the gaps in learning experienced this year due to COVID. Some schools were remote all year, some have been face-to-face, and others have been hybrid. The year was surreal and reminded many of their first year of teaching or starting teaching all over again.
