I want to give some ideas and help brainstorming ideas on how to make a positive out of the current situation.
Tell us about your idea
As a student I have responsibilities to complete school work on time and complete homework. These responsibilities aren't not very difficult to accomplish during a normal school week, however during the current situation I notice many of my friends struggling to keep up with the posted assignments.
When we are allowed back into regular school, or as soon as now, schools should have a plan for prolonged E-learning times. As we have seen these situations aren't as rare as we thought they were.
I think that we should also invest time into including non-electronic lessons into students lives. Classes like chemistry, should incorporate a lab into each week's lesson or unit. These labs should be able to be completed with the items found in a regular family's home.
For classes like English, teachers should try making an assignment that make kids go outside (not in public; in a backyard, etc) and write about what they are experiencing.
These small things that teachers and school districts can do can make a big difference on student's life especially in times like these.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what inspired you to share this idea.
I am a 15 year old boy, I am currently a sophomore in high school. Frankly, this situation doesn't really effect me that much, however, my sister is a senior and she can't go to prom. All the senior's in high school and in college won't be able to experience that satisfaction of being handed that diploma in front of family and friends. This isn't acceptable, this is why I am sharing my ideas.
