SNOW-DAY SCHOLARS: College Credit Plus Government students participate in a Zoom
session with scholars from the National Constitution Center on Tuesday's snow day.
No freeze on learning—even on a snow day!
Tuesday's snow day presented Social Studies Department Chairperson Mrs. Molly Schneider with a dilemma.
She had previously arranged for her College Credit Plus Government classes to participate in an online scholar exchange with experts from the National Constitution Center. With school closed for the day, she was faced with the choice of canceling the exchange or giving students the option of participating from home. She decided to go ahead with the program and see if anybody showed up.
Mrs. Schneider was thrilled when 39 of her students paused their snow day celebrations—or naps—to log on to the Zoom session.
"They asked good questions and interacted thoughtfully with the session facilitator and a federal judge who spoke with us about the Constitution," she said.
