Five Things Not To Do When Schools Re-open


Thank you for the article. Insightful.

What about "Do not see this 'new normal' as a challenge, but rather an opportunity to avoid returning to 20th century teaching practices." These are 21st century students who have been patient, but are yearning for learning environments that are engaging and relevant to THEM and THEIR culture. Don't go back, go forward!

Thank you, a great article and very much in line with our school philosophy. Our students get two recess breaks a day, 45 minutes and 30 minutes. Our key focus right now is staff wellbeing, student wellbeing and community wellbeing.
