Field Notes – Relearning How to Talk with Each Other with Stella Jones

We’re in the midst of some crazy times and we’re also in the midst of a radical shift in our teaching and learning. While this might seem like the time to keep our heads down and stay focused on taking the next right step, here at Bits & Pieces, we also recognize the importance of sharing and celebrating what is working with each other.

So we launched Field Notes: Stories from teachers about what is working. This is a new series of videos and reflections by teachers who are finding ways forward in the world of remote learning. We hope you will find a little time during your day to watch these and that they will help inform your practice along the way.

It’s important for us to not only listen to and learn from each other but also to celebrate the amazing work that y’all are doing.

In this episode, Stephanie and I were lucky enough to sit down and chat with Stella Jones who teachers Spanish at Beaver Lake Middle School. As a teacher of foreign language, Stella has done some deep thinking about the best ways to replicate and re-imagine how students in her classes can practice and demonstrate their growing language skills.
