Help! I Don’t Know How to Be a Teacher! Home-schooling Parents, Teacher Trainers Offer Advice During Coronavirus Shutdown
Parents across Ohio had a surprising new role thrust upon them this week: teaching their children.

The Plain Dealer asked two groups of people for advice for parents’ new role: Home-schoolers, who teach their children at home every day, and professors at teaching colleges, the people who teach teachers how to teach.
Across the board, they told parents to stay calm.
