"This new era of teaching is filled new possibilities because it’s never been done before. We get to make our new norms.
During distance learning, I realized more than anything that my students wanted to be seen and heard. My themed class meetings were the best thing that came from my experience with virtual teaching this past spring. I created various virtual events like pajama night, game night, and flashlight talks!
The students and I gathered online and used the weekly themes to guide our discussions as a class.
This gave our virtual meetings purpose, brought in laughter, and reminded the students that we were still together. The success from these meetings reminded me to continue challenging what I’m used to doing and try something new."
