In the conclusion of my unit 2 annotated bibliography assignment, I summarized
that my hypothesis of teachers being negatively impacted by the pandemic and has caused some to quit is correct and that it is in fact one of the reasons why we have a nationwide shortage of teachers. In my research, I found that not only do teachers been having a tough time trying to stay safe during a dangerous pandemic, but they have had to juggle the new stress and stigma it has brought along with it as well. That stress can come from health concerns and having to
reshape their whole curriculum so it can be taught online.
Since I am trying to inform people about the challenges teachers have gone through during the pandemic I want a broad audience but specifically for it to reach school officials, government officials, and parents so I think a podcast would be a good genre. Some examples of podcasts I’m basing my own off on are Just Between Us and the Bert Show.
