Setting Up Your Home Environment During Distance Learning

Highlander Institute Spotlight Series


Delivering guidance and strategies directly to parents and families in an important place to start when facing a school year that brings many changes and challenges. Like our previous Social Emotional Learning at home spotlight, this post demonstrates how a screencast created just for parents and families can be a powerful messaging tool. The original version of this video was created for Fenton Community High School & the Wood Dale School District in Bensenville, Illinois as leaders begin to roll out school reopening plans and want to invest in strong, ongoing relationships with families to support their learners. We do want to recognize that, while all families have the capacity to support their children in different ways, each family may have different needs. The goal is to outline some of the most effective ideas families can use to focus their efforts.
