Despite having written these words on March 13 Day 5, I’m not particularly good at asking for help for myself. I’m much better at asking for help for others.
A student contacted me saying that they were not going to be completing the online homework for a while and didn’t want to be penalized. As a non-essential worker, they no longer had a paycheck and they couldn’t justify the expense of access to the online text and homework system. Once the trial period ran out, they were done.
So I asked my text book representative for help. An access code arrived. I shared it with the student and welcomed them back to the class. I understand that textbook manufacturers can’t do this for everyone but I am grateful they came through for this one.
