Elementary school students work with Roseville High rec admin students to practice physical education. Now that students cannot visit elementary schools, the class needs new curriculum.

For the elective class Recreational Administration, going to online school took a large shift in curriculum. For the remainder of school, the students were supposed to put the recreational organization skills they have learned to use by teaching P.E. to students at Spanger and Maidu elementary schools.

In order for the class to go online, Rec. Admin teacher Emily Dodds has had to create new curriculum. The assignments have consisted of students creating presentations, researching assigned topics such as “Benefits of Living a Physically Active Life,” and reading articles about recreational activities. 

Junior Tanner Duncan, a Rec. Admin student, knew that this was going to cause a dramatic change for the class, as they planned on teaching kids for the rest of the year. 

“It’s definitely a new feel for all of us in the class. We didn’t really know what we were going to have to do, since most of the class is teaching P.E. to our students,” Duncan said. “But we knew that Mrs. Dodds would have to give us something to do… The online portion of the class is alright but there isn’t much else that she could’ve given us.”

He is also sad that he isn’t going to be able to continue teaching the students he got to know before RHS went online.

“I’m pretty disappointed that I won’t be able to see the kids because I made a connection with most of them and I wish I could see them again,” Duncan said. “But I won’t be able to.”
