Over the next few months, many students will be experiencing a prolonged summer slide, lasting as long as five months and creating a big challenge for educators as they prepare to return to school in some form in the fall. Edgenuity’s Continuity of Learning solutions are designed to help schools and districts offer additional learning opportunities to mitigate learning loss resulting from school closures.
Learning Loss Courses are designed to help ensure that students learn the content, skills, and standards in the four core subjects addressed during school closures. Teachers can customize the content in these courses, which provide an effective learning solution so students are ready to learn new material, and support both progress monitoring and accountability to help meet state or federal funding requirements.
Learning Loss Courses are designed to be completed in nine weeks.
Booster Courses prepare students for grade-level ELA and math courses by providing explicit, direct instruction on the most important concepts and skills from the previous grade. Students begin by taking a 50-question diagnostic assessment to determine their understanding of the overall course content, and to customize their learning path.
Each lesson in these courses begins with pretesting to assess the student’s proficiency of the skills covered in that lesson, enabling students to place out of individual lessons so they can focus on skills and content they have yet to master.
Booster Courses are designed to be completed in eight weeks, but can be completed more quickly depending on prior knowledge.
To further support students and educators, we also offer:
As students work through these courses and modules, valuable data will be collected so teachers can see individual student progress and get a better understanding of where additional instruction and support are needed. Students can work on these courses throughout the summer and fall semester to help fill any gaps in their learning and reinforce what they’ve already learned.
As schools and districts continue adapting to the changing needs of their communities, educators need focused training to offer their students instruction and support so they can continue learning. To help, we have developed webinars and courses that offer additional training and guidance for teachers and administrators.
Much of this training is delivered via prerecorded webinars, enabling educators to watch and review them as needed. The training covers topics such as enrolling students in Booster Courses, customizing course content, and grading and monitoring student work. All of these videos and courses are designed to cut down on the amount of work educators need to do to transition to online and hybrid instruction, leaving them more time to focus on helping their students.
