Kit Camp, Catlin’s woodshop teacher for Middle and Upper Schools, was nervous as to how his classes would translate to remote learning.
The shop was an “equalizer for all students,” he said. “The space allowed every student access to the same tools, materials, and teacher input. I was used to being able to touch the students’ work and interact with them directly on their projects.”
One of the ways in which Kit has adapted his classes is by having students build analog-style, using their hands. And, he’s delighted to report that students are “rocking it!” The list of creations is already long.
Students are building furniture, carving spoons, and a chess set with a Swiss Army knife; baking breads and making soup dumplings; building a pig house and raised beds; sewing stuffed animals, patching holes in their jeans, embroidering designs on shoes, and latch-hooking; creating detailed maps for Dungeons and Dragons, making puzzles, and crafting a mini Skee-Ball game from foam core; modeling a miniature basketball court and building a diorama of the shop.
