California State PTA is excited to announce the launch of its new online Resource Library. It is our hope that it can function as a no-cost tool to support the learning needs of all children and families as we navigate a new learning environment.
This powerful new tool offers PTA members, families and educators a wealth of vetted resources to support learning, including activities that children can do at home while schools are physically closed. Additionally, parents can access articles and videos that can inform and empower them as they advocate for a full curriculum and educational equity.
The materials found in the PTA Resource Library cover a broad range of subject matter areas, including many specifically aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), whose implementation California State PTA has long supported. This is particularly relevant today, on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
“California State PTA is proud to offer this important tool as a resource for our members, especially at this challenging time when distance learning is the new normal,” said Celia Jaffe, President of California State PTA. “Having access to such a library can benefit parents, children and educators by offering resources and activities that support learning across the full curriculum, including STEM/STEAM, the arts and more.”
The Resource Library can be found at http://www.capta.org/resource-library, and is accessible to the public. Users can search the contents by keyword and sort results by age, topic or type.
