With the ability to see grades and progress for all courses at once, this modern, clean view helps students to prioritize their learning time.
The new course map incorporates due dates, alert icons, estimated time for activities, and scores for completed work, helping students visualize their own progress.
Students have quick access to their eNotes, a printable assignment calendar, and progress and attendance reports.
Students can learn online based on their schedule, with 24/7 classroom access.
Students can access their classroom in any location where Internet is available.
Educators can personalize learning to meet each student’s unique needs.
Each student can learn at a pace that’s best for his or her own academic goals.
Edgenuity’s direct-instruction videos feature expert, on-screen teachers who explain concepts, model strategies, provide examples, and make real-world connections.
Students stop to complete tasks that check for understanding. They can also pause or rewind videos to take notes or review concepts as they progress through instruction at their own pace.
Meaningful assignments ensure students master key concepts and develop analytical and critical thinking skills. Throughout our courses, students will read, write, explore, create, practice, predict, and much more.
Formative and summative assessments test for mastery and provide immediate, actionable feedback for students and teachers.
Our CloseReader™ tool supports the active reading of complex texts, with embedded comprehension questions, text and audio prompts, and contextual definitions of new vocabulary words. Transcripts and video captions allow students to follow along with the on-screen teacher as they deliver direct instruction, ground concepts in relevant real-world applications, teach comprehension strategies, and offer clear and concise explanations of subject matter. And the CloseReader™ tool helps students to become more active and engaged readers.
Students can receive support in their home language. Throughout Edgenuity’s® courses, students can translate text into over 60 languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. Additionally, students can hear text read aloud in Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.
In each lesson, students are explicitly taught academic and content-area vocabulary words. Through direct instruction and practice, students learn how to apply these words in new contexts. Students also have access to an embedded glossary tool, which allows them to review words introduced in each lesson and look up new words.
