Not sharing is caring: Teachers adapt their classrooms to the pandemic
September 9, 2020
As she reassembled her classroom at Ouray School last week, high school teacher Taylor Chase was planning for two realities.
She arranged photo albums and books along the windowsill, ready for students to return and flip through the pages, and tried to visualize how her desks would be set up to meet spacing requirements for in-person French and Spanish classes.
But as she prepared to return to her classroom, she also made plans to leave it again. One of her first tasks was to pack up a blue plastic bin, labeled “go box.” It’s filled with the books and binders of curricula she’ll take home if they move back to online classes.
