Talking with children about COVID-19: Messages for parents, school staff, and others working with children
Considering how COVID-19 may impact the upcoming school year, the Region 7 Comprehensive Center (R7CC) Advisory Board has requested information about best practices on distance and blended learning. In response to this inquiry, R7CC developed two Fast Response reports that address these issues. This Fast Response report provides a brief summary of effective instructional practices related to distance and blended learning described in the literature as well as special implementation considerations for reflection. The second report in this series summarizes what other states are doing to address distance learning.
