Foundation – Students build a foundational understanding of subjects, establishing proficiency given different learning styles through the use of video, class notes, texts, and audio explanations of key concepts.
Application – Students learn to apply skills and lessons, internalize concepts, and make them their own’ using critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.
Mastery – Students demonstrate mastery and proficiency by showing how key concepts can be woven together to build bridges that connect to bigger broader issues. Students extend tasks to “authentic” contexts and realistic scenarios, which in turn relate back to students’ own lives, or to help students to build a better understanding of the world.
Teachers record videos designed specifically to reinforce the unit’s conceptual framework.
Units include assessments and project-based learning opportunities designed to draw connections between the content and the student’s passion.
