The Good Old Days of In-Person Learning

Ayana Jones, Writer

October 21, 2020

  This School year is unlike any other. All the other school years I have always gone to school in-person  with my classmates and teachers. I was used to getting up early in the morning to get ready to go to school. Take a shower, getting dressed, brushing my teeth, my everyday morning routine.  When the Coronavirus Pandemic hit suddenly, I wasn't able to do my everyday morning routines and go to school in person. Having Virtual Learning has been a struggle for me because I was able to see all my teachers and ask for help if I needed it. I was able to keep track of all my assignments  that were due organized in a folder, binder, in a notebook if needed as a reminder.   In-person learning makes school easier. I am able to communicate with my teachers without any problems. Although I can ask for help during Virtual Learning, I can understand better. You have more time to complete and turn in your assignments. In-person class gives you more opportunity to work together as team. While Virtual Learning you are more on your own than with others. I miss socializing with my friends and classmates; hanging out at lunch time and after school.   In conclusion,  in-person learning not only makes communication easier. It makes school more enjoyable and fun.  Also, it gives me a chance to get out of the house for a while. For example, last year I was able to do lab experiments in Biology. Another example before 2019 ended, me and other classmates presented our culture presentations to everyone and  learned more about each other. The human touch is missing online which makes this school year even more difficult. We'll get through this and everything will get back to normal....
