COVID-19: EMERGENCY SUPPORT FOR DISTANCE LEARNING - World Book International

Dear Educators, Parents, Guardians, and Students!

The events over the past few weeks and uncertainty about what is to come are unprecedented, but it is a period that we will get through together as a community, as we always do. Whether you are directly or indirectly impacted, we know that COVID-19 is placing a significant strain on the ability of educators to reach their learners, causing much stress for schools and libraries, as well as for children and their parents. World Book has been a partner supporting the education community since 1917, and we are here to continue to support you today and through these challenging times.

For over 100 years, our missions have been aligned. To further support you and your remote learning efforts, we are providing all of our valued educators with access to additional Pre-K to grade 12 learning resources through May 31, 2020. To gain access to these additional complimentary resources, please click here.

We created this guide to support you, your team, parents, grandparents, caregivers, or anyone using our resources remotely. To further support virtual learning, next week we will be launching Wizard, an adaptive learning resource for math, science, social studies, and language arts. This resource can help augment teacher and parent efforts by:

  • Ensuring that kids retain content taught earlier this school year, and
  • Providing teachers and parents the opportunity to assign new learning topics and to monitor students’ progress on each topic, ensuring that they are learning and mastering standards-based content.

When you click to gain access to the additional complimentary resources, you will automatically have access to Wizard when it becomes available next week, without any further action.

If we can do anything more to help in your efforts, please do not hesitate to contact us. Our hearts and thoughts go out to everyone in your community.

Best,

Geoff Broderick
