Coronavirus has altered school as we used to know it. As teachers have moved their classrooms online, parents are taking on the role of educators. It might not be the ideal situation for families but Brainly is giving high schoolers a chance to share how parent support while learning from home has helped them to succeed.
Power of Parents Scholarship from Brainly
Brainly’s new Power of Parents Scholarship gives U.S. high school students the opportunity to write a 300-400 word essay about some of the biggest sacrifices their parents/guardians have made to support them while learning from home. This $2,500 scholarship open to any students who are in high school, plan to go to college, and have home-school experience- which is every teen these days! Eligible students just need to submit their essay by April 30, 2020.
Some questions students could potentially address in their scholarship essay submission include:
- How is your parent/guardian helping you navigate this new world of online learning to make sure your education doesn’t skip a beat?
- How are you as a student being supported while learning at 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?
Brainly is the world’s largest free online learning community. When students join, they’re able to access a global student network of 150,000 users for assistance with homework. They can share knowledge of subjects to help others while getting assistance in learning content that is confusing.
It’s the perfect way to get help in real time during school closures and social distancing!
Brainly is student led, with subject expert moderators ensuring accuracy, and preventing simple answer swapping. It’s a great way for students to learn from their peers, especially during a time of at-home learning. It also serves as a positive way teen can reinforce their knowledge because one of the best indicators of learning is being able to teach someone else.
