Preparing for Schooling from Home

by Lucas Hilty

In this series of documents, Jonas suggests a framework for providing sustainable education at home. This framework seeks not to remake school as school, but to adjust in order to effectively support schooling at home if that is required. For an introduction to the need for such a plan, start with "Seeking a Right Way", then read "Preparing for Schooling at Home": https://thedockforlearning.org/contributions/seeking-a-right-way/ https://thedockforlearning.org/contributions/preparing-for-schooling-at-home/
