Fourth-grade teacher Kim Schafer recognizes the ways in which distance learning may feel different to her students and shared a wonderful story from an online exchange with her class:
"I was talking with the kids about cognitive overload and how, even though what I was asking them to do was familiar, doing things virtually may be more complicated. I further explained that they needed to let me know if they were experiencing overload. After this wonderfully caring and heartfelt little speech, there was dead silence. Finally, after an awkward pause, one brave little voice popped up, 'Mrs. Schafer, we’re good. Are you cognitively overloaded?!'"
We're challenging Breck families to join us for a Summer Read-a-thon during the month of July. Proceeds benefit The Sheridan Story.
