VIDEO Series: Inside Taft Classrooms
Taft continues to offer hybrid instruction with the majority of students studying in person on campus and some studying remotely (77 this spring). Specialized cameras and microphones in each classroom allow our remote students to study synchronously or (when time zone necessitates) asynchronously by watching recordings of classes. To get a sense of what teaching and learning look like this year, view a titration experiment, check out a DNA extraction lab and a CRISPR lab, or take a peek inside Taft’s STEM lab. Interested in arts? See students in action at the potter’s wheel and drawing in the art room.
