We are completing our 17th year of homeschool this year. Doing the math, you can see that we began homeschooling far before it was “cool.” And well before it was mandated due to the coronavirus.
When COVID-19 began shutting down schools, most of our country’s students began homeschoolers. Perhaps not in the traditional sense, but they did have to school at home.
E-learning, or distance learning, became mainstream terms. Educational apps and resources began popping up everywhere as businesses came forward to help.
Brainly is a knowledge-sharing community where 200 million students and experts put their heads together to crack their toughest homework questions.
Many students are learning from home, which means parents and guardians are sometimes having to serve as de-facto teachers.
Now, Brainly wants to know how your parent/guardian is helping you navigate this new world of online learning to make sure your education doesn’t skip a beat?
Power of Parents Scholarship
Brainly would like to know how you, as a student, are being supported while learning at home.
They are looking for a 300-400 word essay that answers questions such as:
- What are some of the biggest sacrifices your parent/guardian has made to ensure you’re successful while learning from home?
- Has your parent/guardian put in extra hours helping you figure out homework questions they didn’t know how to answer themselves?
- What steps are your parents/guardians taking to ensure they can put in a full day’s work while you put in a full day of learning?
- How has your parent/guardian gone the extra mile to make your home-learning experience a success?
