Schools and Families As Partners in Remote Literacy Learning

Remote literacy learning is a collaboration among schools, families, and students.

Working Together

Schools Should Families Should
Include information on how families can access and use technology, like the learning management system, apps, online games, or technology assisted programs, to support their children’s literacy learning. Coach your child’s literacy learning at home.
Use these technologies to enhance, not replace, what you are already doing instructionally. Turn everyday experiences into literacy learning opportunities using household items.
Continue to provide literacy intervention to children who previously received it, even though it may not look the same as it did in person. Not feel that you need to take the place of teachers.
Make the instruction accessible to students with disabilities and follow goals and supports identified on a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Remember that remote learning will look different for every family.
Seek input from families and students to help you to know what is working and what can be improved. Provide input to help the school to know what is working and what can be improved.
Suggest resources and activities for families. Convey that everyday experiences can be turned into literacy learning opportunities. Have confidence that you can use the resources and guidance from schools and your own research to help your child!
