The Parliament, Grades 4-12

erin1The Parliament is open to students entering grades 4 through 12.  Mornings spent in this program will target reinforcement, remediation or enhancement in the core academic areas of reading, writing and math. Students enrolled in this program will experience our successful blended learning approach. Blended education combines the best practice of direct instruction by a highly qualified staff member, with repetition, review, and reinforcement through a computer mediated instructional program.

Teachers use a multi-sensory based approach for learning with engaging activities that facilitate learning. We design your student’s academic learning path based on his or her individual needs. Whether your student needs an emphasis in math, reading, writing or a combination of these core subjects, we will reinforce skills, work on filling academic holes and assist your student in being prepared for the following school year.

An Overview of The Parliament:

Circle of Power and Respect (CPR) Circle of Power and Respect begins the day by creating community.  CPR has four components:  Greeting, Sharing, Group Activity, and News and Announcements.  By starting out with a CPR, it gives students stability allowing them to do what they most want and need to do: connect with their peers.
Reading, Writing AOWL uses an individualized blended learning approach for instruction.  This means that students rotate between working in small groups of 2-3 directly being instructed by the teacher, working independently and reinforcing concepts learned through a computer-mediated program.  Depending on the student and his/her needs, examples of small group instruction might include guided reading groups, skill building or writing activities. When students rotate into their independent workstation they spend this time applying the skills learned in small group to an activity that might include writing a summary, working on vocabulary or a hands-on-activity.
Math Math is very similar to reading and writing in that AOWL uses an individualized blended approach for instruction. Students will again rotate between a small group setting, independent work and a computer-mediated program.
