    Episode #47: 6th grade graduation in the time of COVID-19

    01/07/2020 Duração: 09min

    A couple of weeks ago, we had the chance to take part in a collaboration between the Vermont Agency of Education and Vermont Public Radio (VPR), celebrating the strange and wonderful ways this year's graduation differs from those in years past. The hourlong program featured students and educators from around the state, performing music, giving speeches and simply musing on the ways in which the class of 2020 made. It. Work. So as an excerpt, and leading us towards the end of the podcast's fourth season, here's the piece we produced for the show. We spoke with students, educators and families from two schools who approached graduation very differently: The Warren School, in Warren VT, and Poultney Elementary School, down in Poultney VT. This is a tale of two sixth grades.

    Episode #46: A Quarantine Homeschooling Dispatch from Super Sisters Academy

    15/05/2020 Duração: 15min

    "It feels really weird, because in some ways it's kind of cool to see how you can be homeschooled. But then in other ways you're like, "Ohhhhh, it’s kind of scary." Because we are staying home because of the virus that’s going around and for our safety and other people's safety and everything. So it’s mixed feelings I guess." Today on The 21st Century Classroom we're going to explore quarantine homeschooling in the age of COVID-19: What are we learning during it? And what are we learning *from* it?

    Episode #45: Hunter education In Vermont

    14/05/2020 Duração: 21min

    In Vermont, fishing and hunting license sales have taken off since the beginning of the COVID pandemic. Turkey hunting license sales increased by 26% for the recent start of the spring turkey season. Combination hunting & fishing  licenses are up 24%. It seems like since the Stay At Home order, where our work, school and social spheres got smaller, Vermonters have been heading outdoors to hunt. Not just adults but whole families. Which bring us to two questions: 1) What does it take for a young adult in Vermont to get a hunting license? And 2) what do young Vermonters find so engaging about hunting? Especially as it’s an activity they do with their families? A full transcript is available at https://wp.me/p4r2oE-6GW
