Distance Learning Resources

At Pop Culture Classroom, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to incorporate pop culture into classroom learning. As schools across the country have closed and moved to distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to continue to innovate and capture the attention and imaginations of our youth.

Below, you’ll find a growing list of resources that Pop Culture Classroom has created to help parents and educators navigate learning at home — including videos, resources, blog entries, digital workshops, and more. Please enjoy these free tools, tips, how-tos, and other valuable information. Check back regularly for new additions!
