Despite reflecting with and sampling opinions across members of staff in my department, this term we seem to have reverted back to an isolated way of managing our classes. This could be for any number of reasons, a few are listed below:
- Lack of preparation time for classes coming back
- Blended learning worked differently for each class and transitioning from that was a challenge
- Each teacher wanted a chance to rebuild a relationship for their class with no common courses required.
- Those who did not create units for whole yeargroups before now no longer had the time to, and some who did no longer had the will to.
This has, unfortunately, led to a lack of equity to some extent across classes.
