Laura Cooper begins class at eight o'clock each morning in her basement, behind her foosball table. She records videos of herself that go out to her kindergarten students in Washington state. They've been learning how to read from home since the Covid-19 pandemic closed their schools.
Becky Cary is a biology instructor at Duke University in North Carolina. She balances emails and assignments from students sometimes 14 hours ahead of her, having left campus and returned to their homes around the globe.
So much has changed for teachers, students and parents in the last few months, and we asked you to send in stories about how you've been adapting. On this episode of the Educate podcast, we hear from Cooper, Cary and listeners like you.
