Corwin: The Distance Learning Playbook for Parents

Corwin is the premier publisher of professional learning resources that equip educators to improve teaching and learning. Throughout the COVID 19 pandemic, Corwin has been committed to supporting education professionals, students, and parents through the swift transition from physical instruction to remote and hybrid learning environments.

Following the tremendous success of The Distance Learning Playbook, K-12, education authorities Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Hattie teamed up with New York Times best-selling author of Queens Bees and Wannabees (the basis of the movie Mean Girls) Rosalind Wiseman to bring parents the consummate guide to support your child′s academic, social, and emotional development in any learning environment – while not overwhelming you in the process.
