Well, I learn something new every day. Suggestions from the Heritage Foundation that sound valuable for everybody at any time:

Families, schools, and free markets are rising to the challenge of schooling during a worldwide pandemic.  

Here are ten resources to check out for your own family: 

  1. Project Gutenberg is
    an online library of more than 60,000 free eBooks of the world’s great
    literature. These great works are available in full online for free
    because they are older works for which U.S. copyright has expired. 
  2. The Ashbrook Center’s Teaching American History Project is
    a treasure trove of history resources that “explore themes in American
    history and self-government through the study of original historical
    documents.” 
  3. Mike McShane of EdChoice recommends Brain Pop,
    which offers online resources, interactive activities, quizzes, and
    lessons in everything from science and social studies to art and
    engineering.  He also recommends the Cincinnati Zoo’s page, which offers
    a Facebook Live safari every day at 3 p.m. Eastern.  
  4. The entire Core Knowledge Foundation curriculum is now online for free.  
  5. Get a crash course in homeschooling through the Home School Legal Defense Association’s homeschooling through high school page.  
  6. The Space Foundation partnered with Peanuts to create ten free lesson plans, in its “ongoing quest to catalyze the next generation of space explorers, innovators, and entrepreneurs.” 
  7. Beginning next Wednesday, Code Break will
    offer a live, weekly webcast to teach students computer science at
    home, even offering learning options for students without computers.  
  8. The Bill of Rights Institute has a wealth of history curriculum resources.  
  9. More advanced students can check out the University of Dallas’ Arts in Liberty courses in LogicRhetoricGeometry and Arithmetic, and Astronomy.  
  10. Open Cultureprovides access to free online courses from universities worldwide as well as audiobooks and documentaries, and EdXoffers free online courses from universities on topics such as language, business management, and engineering.
