Each series of hands-on learning activities corresponds to an online course and covers four core subjects: English language arts, math, science, and social science. T. Under every project, there is an authentic and cross-disciplinary challenge. A good project solves a problem! Learners have the opportunity to express creativity, use problem-solving skills, and apply learned content to real-world problems.
Both the learner and parent partner with a credentialed teacher to dive deep into the weekly content, which culminates with a project related to real-world skills. Our facilitator does the hard work for you: from supporting growth opportunities to providing feedback and assessing your child’s strengths, parents can partner as little or as much as desired.
Weekly live sessions allow for engagement with other students and parents, conversation with the facilitator (teacher), and live learning activities and support.
Learning Experience 1: The Selfie Project(Quarter 1)
Social Science, Language Arts & Science: The selfie project adventure will explore the fundamentals of the United States government, science and writing. Learners will analyze how and why the 13 colonies declared independence from Great Britain and the significance of the development of American constitutional democracy. In science learners will investigate the properties of matter and how atoms interact in chemical reactions. For the Big Project learners will answer the driving questions of Who are you? Who do you want to be? How do you want to describe yourself? Learners will dive deep in self-reflecting and building emotional intelligence by discovering more of who they are. They will develop their own constitutional mission statement, declaration of independence and create a photography piece that reflects their purpose and chemical self. At the end of the project learners will participate in a virtual photo gallery exhibit.
Math: Learners will begin their pre-algebra journey by improving their foundational mathematics concepts and develop essential skills needed to be successful in the high school mathematics curriculum. The standards taught include arithmetic, algebraic reasoning, basic geometry concepts, and fundamental statistics. This course is provided to give the student the tools necessary to enter Algebra or Integrated Math.
