As a member of both Theatre Production and Musical Theatre, junior MJ Kelly has had to bring the usual theatre experience to her home. This year, with the separation between online and in-person students, many hands-on classes had to adjust to the new way of learning. “Theatre is still amazing, especially considering what we’re working with,” Kelly said. “But the lack of performances and shows, the main point of theatre, is making it a lot less [interactive] than usual. It’s just the way life is now in the pandemic.”

From Hands-on to Cameras On

Students Discuss Adjustments for Interactive Classes

Whether they have chosen to attend school in person or online, students have had to adjust to the new learning style that comes with each. Some classes have an easier time adapting to new regulations and schooling options. However, for classes that are more interactive and hands-on, present and future lesson plans are more uncertain. In classes such as culinary, theatre and art, activities can either be more difficult or easier for online students depending on the resources available. Similarly, new rules and regulations have impacted the classroom environment for students attending in person.
