Learning Heroes shares resources that help schools form strong partnerships with families that advance social, emotional, and academic development. Resources begin with building a plan to start the school year on a positive footing, evaluate and take steps to promote student progress, and provide tips and tools to support continued learning over the summer. Other tools include discussing racism, planning tools for teacher/parent communication, and interactive guides to grade-level expectations.

In the Classroom

Discover and use the many researched-based ideas found on this site to enhance and build community and parent partnerships in your school. This site includes tips on using the resources to strengthen family outreach. Start with these tips and expand your outreach by including teacher and student interactions to demonstrate ideas. For example, schedule virtual monthly meetings and workshops using Zoom, reviewed here, that includes information on current assessments, tips for improving study skills, or discussing your current curriculum. For parents unable to participate, create a screen recording using Screencast-O-Matic, reviewed here, and post the video on your class website. Be sure to feature student work within your activities. Adobe Spark for Education, reviewed here, is an excellent resource for curating and sharing ideas by creating short videos, websites, or flyers.
