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.

Hopeful Minds

Hopeful Minds is a project developed by the International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression (iFred). It is based on research that suggests hope is a measurable and teachable skill. It impacts all outcomes in life, including academic outcomes, athletic performance, health, and resilience. Our aim is to equip children, educators, and parents with the tools they need to create, maintain, and grow hope even during the most trying times.

The Hopeful Minds curriculums reinforce all eight National Health Education Standards as set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and meet social and emotional learning (SEL) guidelines. We offer all of our curriculums free, as we believe hope is a human right and must be available to all. It is easily adaptable in different cultures, and uses activities and examples to enhance lessons. Learn more.
