School this year for me is different. I am now taking two virtual classes concurrently with other students plus three at my own pace like I have done before. All my classes have someone at my side to hold the letterboard. My classes give me new content to learn and that is good. At this point, Biology is my favorite but it is also the hardest. I spend a long time on Biology homework and since my mom is my communication partner for that subject, our communication on letterboard has gotten much better, which is good.
Now I must learn how to do group projects with other students. This has been more difficult than I expected. The other students can be helpful or difficult. How can I do my share if they don’t do their part? This is my challenge to overcome. Sometimes all I need is new insights from the teacher.
The most difficult part now is Zoom. Staying focused during a long class is hard. I am using fidgets (see prior post) to stay focused but that doesn’t always work. This will take me practice to get better.
I still want to try in-school learning again to see if I can do it. The world of school has many teams and I want to play on all of them. The school is the best place to try different types of learning methods. Sometimes the school makes the learning too hard to absorb depending on the environment so it is important that schools always try to adjust to the needs of the students
