Talking with children about COVID-19: Messages for parents, school staff, and others working with children
A Practitioner’s Guide to Responding to COVID-19 Series: Guides and Tools for State and Local School Administrators
In response to questions and concerns about COVID-19 from state leadership within Region 7, a series of annotated bibliographies was created to inform stakeholders about the potential impact of increased out-of-school time and possible strategies to mitigate harm to students’ academic development. The purpose of the series of bibliographies is to address three main questions.
- Question 1: What will the impact of COVID-19 be on out-of-school learning loss?
- Question 2: What impact do extended learning programs (summer school, afterschool programs, extended school day, or year-round school) have on student academic achievement?
- Question 3: What initiatives have demonstrated success in offsetting out-of-school learning loss?
- This bibliography addresses guides and tools that may be useful for state and local administrators when planning for offsetting out-of-school learning loss.
