Teaching during COVID-19: How do we respond?
How do we respond through our teaching during COVID-19? In episode 19 of the Amidon Planet Podcast, Tom Andres talks about how circumstances can determine your attitude…if you let it. The basic message, and one that we gleaned from the book Fish!, is we get to choose our attitude and how we respond to the circumstances we are put in. When he said those words I don’t believe Tom had any idea we were on the verge of a global pandemic, but the idea is still the same. We get to choose how we respond. We get to choose our attitude.
The purpose of this page is to share how I am responding to the COVID-19 global pandemic through my teaching. As I learn more I will post more.
Even though we need to be social distant it doesn’t mean we cannot learn together as a community.
