One of the most frustrating things for parents and teachers alike is when a student is struggling, and it is unclear how to best assist them. No one wants to see their child struggle to learn to read, and not knowing how to make the highly complex and multi-layered reading process accessible to students with reading disabilities, such as dyslexia, can be heart-breaking. You may be surprised to hear that font style, font size, and the color of paper can help students with reading and reading comprehension issues! Studies have found that students with dyslexia may benefit from using different color paper or paper overlays because it reduces stress on the eyes.
If there is one place you can count on finding a consistently abundant use of paper daily, it’s an American public school. However, with a push towards computer literacy and virtual learning, is paper still necessary in education? In short, the answer is yes, and the reasons extend far beyond the convenience of printed paperwork. The development of a strong student’s brain is an incredibly complex process and utilizing paper in the right ways can assist in cognitive development.
In 2020, the image of a classroom has changed significantly as we move towards a virtual teaching format. Many teachers have been faced with the new challenge of teaching from home as we enter a new school year with a new cohort of students. We now must ask ourselves how to best decorate our at-home “classrooms” in order to normalize the idea that a virtual classroom is still a classroom. The challenge is figuring out how to appropriately decorate in a way that is economical in both finances and space.
The 2020-2021 school year is certainly not starting as expected, and many teachers have expressed that they feel as though they are starting from square one, no matter their level of experience. A lot of schools have decided to adopt a hybrid or fully virtual learning model until more is known about how to return to school safely. However, ready or not, the school year is coming, and teachers must adapt to make sure students are equipped and prepared for their new learning environments.
