Teacher holds “Birdbox” inspired oral recitation with students wearing blindfolds in online class

In the new normal set-up, students are stuck at home, and classes are held via online classrooms. Since students are sitting in front of a computer or cellphone monitor for hours, it can’t be denied that they sometimes get bored because of the repetitive practice.

So, in order to spice up and make their class a little more interesting, a teacher from Agusan del Sur decided to have this “Birdbox”-inspired class where he asked his students to wear a blindfold.

To those who may be unaware, Birdbox is a Netflix film about a mysterious force causing several deaths at a certain place. Whoever sees this unknown thing, dies. In order to survive, a woman and her children embark on a dangerous journey through the woods and down a river to find the one place that may offer sanctuary.

Teacher Kerwin asked his students to recite the 7 domains and 37 strands of the Philippine Professional Standards for Teachers while wearing their blindfolds. He was even more impressed because his students still managed to pull off the recitation in an honest and commendable manner.
