Utilize post office to deliver engaging, flexible content which student can complete at their own pace and mail back.
Tell us about your idea
Equity issues during the pandemic have focused on getting computers and internet access to low-income students and families. While this is admirable, how about also using the U.S. Mail to send materials to those who are cut-off from technology. These lessons should be fun, engaging, and encourage student voice and creativity (i.e. not just worksheets). The student can complete at their own pace, then return the postage paid materials back for assessment and feedback. Prizes could also be sent through the mail to keep kids motivated.
