Remote Students React to HTLP 2.0

Is new schedule more, less beneficial for remote students

While many students recently returned to hybrid learning, some have chosen to stay online. The mixture of students both in-person and online has made teaching classes more challenging.

Teachers will sometimes forget the students that are online and not pay attention to them in the slightest, so it was kind of nicer to have everyone online because then they weren’t just teaching the class they were teaching everyone,” says Natalie Weinman ’24. Additionally, when asked whether or not the 70 min classes are too long, Weinman says, “Definitely. I get migraines at the end of every day in school.”

Jay Gulati ’22 agrees, “Yes I do. Even when I was in-person, back in 9th and 10th grade, I thought they were too long then and I still do now.” Since the start of the year, teachers have improved and evolved with how they teach remote classes and classes where some students are online and others are in-person. “The technology usage and the actual quality of the technology being used has improved dramatically,” says Gulati. All-remote school is not necessarily a negative experience for all.

Gulati says that “It’s a different experience than being at school physically, there’s positives and there’s negatives, but overall my experience [with remote school] has been largely positive. I think it shows that Blake instructors are committed to keeping people in the community, which is good to see.”

Sofia Perlman, Editor Emerita
My name is Sofia and I am a senior this year! I have been a writer and editor for Spectrum since my freshman year, and I previously served on the Spectrum Staff Team as Copy Editor and Student Spotlight page editor. Previously I have edited the In-Depth, Sci-Tech, Perspectives, and News pages. My favorite thing about Spectrum is the collaboration across all different grade levels. I love having the opportunity to work with people I would otherwise not know. Outside of school, I am a year-round student at Minnesota Dance Theatre and a member of MDT's Second Company. I love to travel, read, and spend time with friends and family.

Hey! I’m Noor, I’m a senior, this is my second semester as an Editor-in-Chief, and I'm currently a features editor. I've edited News, Sports, Sci-tech, Front, and Opinions and became a Managing Editor my first semester last year. I started writing freshman year and have loved it ever since. My favorite part of Spectrum is doing interviews because I feel like they’re such unique opportunities to interact with people you otherwise never would. Outside of Spectrum, I enjoy napping, hanging out with friends, and smoothies.
