Teachers and students are finding unique ways to continue learning and growing during the quarantine. Perhaps students who live in rural communities like Baker have it easier than students living in urban areas because there is more for them to do outside. They aren’t cooped up in houses or apartments; in addition, many of their families welcome the extra help they can provide. This is especially true of all the farmers and ranchers in our area who are grateful for all the support they get during this busy time of the year.
In speech class, students were asked to prepare and present “How To” demonstration speeches. The students were able to record themselves performing tasks and then present them to the entire class online as YouTube videos. In Spanish class, students were asked to compile a two week diary of their activities, focusing on the new vocabulary they are learning involving household and family chores.
