When students arrived Tuesday in BJ Price’s class at Twin Falls High School, visitors from another school district were waiting to observe their class.  But it’s nothing new for Price’s biology students, who didn’t seem to be caught off-guard. “Does anyone have a laptop today?” Price asked as students got settled. A few students pulled out their own laptops and signed into an online program to work on a science lab. Everyone else went to computers at the back of the classroom. A few educators from the Fruitland School District in the Treasure Valley looked over students’ shoulders to see what they were doing. Price and fellow biology teacher Matt Harr are the only teachers at Twin Falls High with a fully “blended” classroom. Visitors from around the state have come to their classrooms to learn more about how the model works.
