It is Saturday and I just got my power back last night. I was very concerned that I would be going back to work on Monday (still not a guarantee) without power. I am very concerned for my students as some of them may still not have power when we return to school. The question I am asking myself is what can I do to help my students adjust to school after this hurricane? My first thought is review of past material. I plan to start with some problem sets and group work. Maybe some Halloween candy will be a good idea as many have had the holiday postponed till this week. I will also look for a video or two on Discovery Streaming to support their content. I can then download them and put the videos on itouches we have at school for the students to take home (fully charged of course) and watch. I also know that homework the first few days my be difficult to complete. I plan to make allowances for that week depending upon the power outages my students are experiencing. I really don’t know what my students have experienced this week but I know I need to be sensitive to it. I would like you to comment on this post with your ideas. I think we could also set up some resources for the students in NY and NJ who were the hardest hit. When they do get power I hope our DEN family can provide the support I know they will need.
