Broadcast class video showcases teachers reading, singing, exercising

Schools may be closed, but their creative teachers and students are very much in session. Students in Beyond the Rock, Rockford High School’s award-winning video production and broadcasting class, put together a snazzy video to showcase all the ways teachers have reached out to students following the March 16 school closure. 

Program teacher Kris DeYoung invited staff to submit photos and videos about the ways they are connecting with their students and encouraging their learning at home, whether reading stories on Facebook, posting videos of sing-alongs or posing art challenges on Instagram. One teacher even created a virtual field trip to Lansing in place of the canceled real thing, and another is taking care of her classroom’s fiddler crab at home.
