Learning At-Home Resources

Mississippi Department of Education Compiles Learning-at-Home Resources

JACKSON, Miss. –  The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) has compiled a host of learning-at-home resources for students in pre-K through grade 12 to support student learning during the extended school closure. The resources are available online at www.mdek12.org/LearningAtHome.

 

The learning-at-home resources do not replace what children have learned at school, but instead, help students practice the skills and strategies taught by their teachers. The resources are intended to help parents and caregivers engage students in continued education. 

 

MDE content specialists have selected all resources, which include dedicated webpages for students in pre-K-grade 1, grades 2-3, grades 4-5, grades 6-8 and grades 9-12. Also, resources for students with visual or hearing impairments are available and guidance on social-emotional learning.

 

During this unusual time of extended school closures nationwide, it is important that students continue to read, write, and engage in social studies, science and math activities.

 

MS Public Health Institute Resources

Parents and Families, 

The MS Public Health Institute (MSPHI) has compiled resources to provide resources to families.  Resources are grouped into  three categories:

 

  • Information for Parents, Teachers, and Principals on how to explain and cope with infectious disease outbreaks like we are currently experiencing

 

  • Information for Parents, Teachers/Principals, or any adults working with our youth that can be used as tips for talking to them about substance abuse or as reference sheets for accurate information about different substances (alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and prescription drugs).

 

  • A series of informative documents entitled, “The Truth about _______”. This packet contains information useful to teens as they struggle to decipher the truth from all the rumors about different substances.
