Parent involvement has always been a vital part of any child’s education, but the pandemic and resulting remote instruction require that parents and educators partner at a deeper level.
Following the tremendous success of The Distance Learning Playbook, K-12, education authorities Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie have teamed up with New York Times bestselling author and parenting expert Rosalind Wiseman to bring you the consummate guide to support your child's academic, social, and emotional development in any learning environment – while not overwhelming you in the process.
This essential guide will arm you with the tools and insight to
- Create an environment conducive to learning, establish routines, and most importantly, take care of yourself and your child
- Maximize the time you spend supporting learning by focusing on what is proven to work best in education
- Help your child develop the cognitive attitudes and habits that foster creativity, critical thinking, and increased responsibility for their learning
- Support the development of your child’s social and emotional learning skills, including the ability to navigate social interactions, build friendships, and regulate emotions at a time when they have never been more important to have, and more challenging to maintain
"If you want to be a Jedi master of distance learning, read this book! It’s a guide for mental strength, practical know-how, and social-emotional support. This is the only pandemic parenting book you’ll need, and I’m telling all my parent friends about it."
"The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents is brilliant and timely. The tips in the book are fabulous—what every parent needs. Every educator should be recommending that parents get it."
"The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents isn’t just for parents. It’s for older siblings and all caregivers, too. Even teachers can gain knowledge from this book! It leads you down a path of understanding from the perspective of children and teachers, and advises parents to be compassionate during this strange time of distance learning. Every parent across America should buy this book—it can help you make a step- by-step plan for your own household while your student is learning virtually."
“The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents is an amazing book. As a parent of a 4-year-old and a 9-year-old, I now feel equipped to handle the challenges that distance learning presents. This book gives me the tools to develop routines and strategies I can use to help my children in their distance learning process. I was feeling lost and stressed out about how I was going to handle the school year. Now I feel empowered, and I understand how I'm going to tackle the upcoming year.”
“In a time of uncertainty, parents need to feel encouraged and validated. This resource does exactly that. Families need to understand that distance learning is not going to damage our children’s education. Our children will succeed as long as parents, teachers, and students communicate and work together. We are not in this alone. We must remember to take care of ourselves so that we can be supportive and helpful to our children.”
