Making Learning Work

A Family Guide to Supporting Your Child in Hybrid and Remote Learning

As many children across the country continue to participate in school via hybrid or remote learning, we are excited to share a resource to help families support their children’s learning and growth. Download these materials, which are available in English and Spanish.

How To Use The Family Guide

To use this resource, begin by watching a brief welcome video in English or Spanish. Next, read the introduction in English and Spanish, which asks a series of questions that will help you decide which pathway guide might be best for you and your family.

There are three pathway guides:

For each pathway, the guide includes checklists that help you both celebrate the ways you are already supporting your child and identify new ways to extend or deepen that support.

For more information on how to use these guides, visit our workshop series.

Tell Us About Your Experience

Please complete this survey to provide feedback on the pathway guides and gain access to future CPRL resources. The survey is available in English and Spanish.

Thank you to the more than 150 families, community organizers, family engagement leaders and staff members, and local and national education experts who supported the creation of these resources. This work would not have been possible without the tools and guidance produced by the organizations whose resources are linked and described throughout these resources. Thank you!
