Need help with homeschooling? Join our virtual event for parents about education in the era of coronavirus

David Web/ISO republic

There’s a reason the hashtag #Homeschoolingin5Words (“Alexa, teach the kids something”) has been trending on Twitter.

It’s challenging.

With school closures extended at least through much of April, what do teachers know that could make learning at home easier? Which resources do they recommend? And how are they structuring the day with their own children?

Join five top Illinois educators in a moderated discussion with Chalkbeat on how to make remote learning more effective for families. The conversation, which parents can attend for free online, will be at noon Thursday, April 2. RSVP here so we know you’re coming, and so you can receive the information to participate.

In addition to your questions, the conversation will cover what to do when your kids don’t want to study, how to deal with distractions, how to actually see growth academically, and at-home activities that families can do together.

We’ve partnered with Educators for Excellence, TeachPlus, and Golden Apple to bring you this discussion.

The COVID-19 outbreak is changing our daily reality

Chalkbeat is a nonprofit newsroom dedicated to providing the information families and educators need, but this kind of work isn't possible without your help.
