I Am a Parent: What Is My Role in at Home Learning? Part 2

Time: 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Online

This session is the second session in a professional learning series to support parents. Part 2 will address topics that were not addressed in Part 1. Although it is recommended that you attend both sessions, Part 1 is not a prerequisite to Part 2.  

As parents, you and your child(ren) have no doubt experienced some form of “at home learning” at least once this past school year, and in fact, many of you are still engaged in “at home learning” today. Working with your child(ren) at home has most likely challenged you in ways you could not have imagined previous to the onset of the pandemic! Teaching your child was NOT a job you signed up for! The good news is that as parents, you do not have to be your child’s teacher.  But, you do have an incredible role to play in your child’s at home learning.  

Information and Registration (at no cost)

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
