I fear it's going to end up in total chaos with every teacher demanding something different and using a different method to do so.
That has been the situation so far. My wife curses our kids` teachers for sending crazy amounts of work which first should be found on the net, then copied, done and sent back to the teacher. It takes a lot of time and she has been fed up with it already.
Lesser Poland`s Head of Education Board issued an appeal to teachers to ease up on the schoolwork they assign. She openly wrote that parents are furious. Also mentioned the situation which happens in our home - when a few siblings want or have to work at the same time. We have two PCs and other gadgets but it is still not enough.
TEACHERS, LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!!! hahaha
I don`t blame those teachers, though. They are doing what they think is the best in the situation. But some don`t know what moderation is.
"do page 33, tasks 1/2/3' and nothing else will be banned.
Yes, that`s what she advised teachers to do - you can assign such homework in history or Polish. What about maths or physics without class explanation?
then we'll go into the school to print them en masse. We'll then take all ~220 packages of work to the Inpost depot
Wow, going to such pains means you are really dedicated. Respect! :)
but attendance won't be obligatory -
That`s the only way out.
this is a private school with resources. It won't reflect reality in 90% of schools.
Currently, I am not bothered what they will come up with in my area. I will wait and see and adopt whatever they devise. So far I have been contacting my students through e-class register or email. Some teachers use facebook, I don`t coz not all of my students are my friends. :)
On a lighter note: I can see in our e-class platform what tasks my colleagues assign to our students. Some subjects directly refer to the virus situation. Religion class - say prayers for the disruption of the virus spread. Geography - assess the changes in Polish foreign trade due to the virus effects. And the teacher of Polish told students to read The Plague by Camus. Very funny.
