Part 3 Reflection :
This article made me realize the impact the coronavirus pandemic had on young teens in school . Limiting your social environment from not being in-person school causes a negative impact on teenagers . Not being able to communicate with other people or communicating with the same people caused bad effects . Sharing one computer or a room is stressful to students, especially students in poverty . The motivation for students continue was slim . I can relate to this , I was restless when I had all my classes remote . The Wifi was always slowing down because of how many people were in the house , on top of that we had the cheapest internet plan . I do feel like Covid had a negative impact on students . I understand the disconnection that students might have with their classmates is nerve racking getting back to in person classes .
