During a conversation with teachers in early childhood, middle school, and high school classrooms, a theme emerged regarding the difficulty some students are having with in-person learning. Students who had acclimated to the freedom of remote learning were having diffculty adjusting to the time constraints of the classroom. They seemed surprised (or aggravated) that they couldn’t just enter the classroom on their own time schedule, go the restroom when the need arose, walk around if they felt a need to stretch. For some students, the anonymity of virtual learning led to diminished courtesy and respect for others when they re-entered in-person classrooms. Others were having trouble focusing on subject matter as their levels of anxiety remained high. The sense of uncertainty and the potential for serious illness or death created by COVID, also seem to have undermined some students’ motivation for pursuing educational goals. Although the news media focused attention on “the lost year of learning,” less attention was given to the types of re-adjustments the teachers in the conversation are dealing with. Another teacher pointed out that in hindsight more thought should have been given to a planned transition back to in-school classes. Schools are still working to establish a new normal, so it was unrealistic to expect that students could just jump in and pick up where they left off. As a teacher or administrator, what has been your experience as the 2021-2022 school year has been evolving?
