This is the computer generation, but sit back and watch. You will see a hunt & peck typing method with almost all of today’s students as they have not been properly trained. The Common Core Standards offer another major challenge: the new assessment is online.
Why is this assessment a challenge? Our current curriculum does not provide for computer keyboarding skills to be taught to our students. A basic skill that will be learned with our instruction will help your student succeed tremendously during an online assessment. This is why the iType program is critical to their success while we all experience the challenges of a new curriculum.
With the recent implementation of the more rigorous Common Core State Standards (CCSS), our local educators have been familiarizing themselves and incorporating the 6 big shifts that are affecting teaching and learning today. These are:
Research and evidence based
Clear, understandable, and consistent
Aligned with college and career expectations
Based on rigorous content and the application of knowledge through higher-order thinking skills
Built upon the strengths and lessons of current state standards
Informed by other top-performing countries to prepare all students for success in our global economy and society
These new standards involve a higher level of complexity in day-to-day learning. This is why our customized program is so crucial to success for any student experiencing challenges with the new curriculum. We evaluate the specific areas the student needs the most assistance with through the teachers, parents and the individual student.
