Principles of Teaching at Home: When Parents Become Learning Guides

Many parents are faced with new and unique challenges during this unprecedented period of school shutdowns. This includes:

  • Lack of preparation for their new role as learning guides
  • Competing demands of work and home
  • A disconnect between school expectations and parent capabilities
  • Confusion in trying to follow directions for different children in different schools with different teachers
This is not the world they bargained for, nor the world that schools envisioned either. But now more than ever, the family-school partnership is a critical one, demanding understanding and support from both sides.

Watch this OnDemand webinar as Edmentum’s Vice President of Learning Design, Lynelle Morgenthaler, explores building the structure of a school day, creating a productive environment for learning, dealing with anxiety, and more.

This is a previously recorded webinar from April 28, 2020.
