New Podcast: Learning Together at a Distance
Dr. Atwell talks with members of the Marlborough community about how they've been coping with the pandemic.
How are students, teachers, parents, and alums dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic? And how does COVID-19 connect to other social, economic, and political issues facing our school, city, country, and world? Dr. Catherine Atwell, Dean of Student Research, talks with members of the Marlborough community to learn about how they've been coping - and sometimes not coping - with the pandemic. And in the process, we learn about the creative ways teachers and students are learning together, at a distance.
