As the COVID-19 pandemic continues on, St. Mary’s students are taking on distance learning. The St. Mary’s faculty and staff had prepared for weeks leading up to the pandemic in case these steps were necessary, so we are incredibly fortunate for their planning and dedication to ensure lesson plans were in place and accommodations to their current teaching methods were made in order to most effectively communicate the material to their students.
St. Mary’s follows a collegiate model, which works on a weekly cycle. All material is assigned to students on Monday, which they then have the week to complete, with assignments due on Sunday evenings. Teachers then offer office hours and virtual classes via Google Classroom for students to attend.
It has been an adjustment, but one all students and faculty members are taking in stride!
