  • LEARNING The challenge now is for an education system based on an agricultural calendar and organized after an Industrial Age model to transform itself to provide a 21 st century education that prepares students for the Information Age. New circumstances demand not a reinforcing of Industrial Age structures and systems -- but rather a building anew with new initiatives, tools, and institutions for our time. Our nation needs a revolution in the way we educate students in order to meet the expectations of excellence set forth by No Child Left Behind. This is the strategic role of technology.
  • The advantages that Odyssey brings to you and your students are…. We will be looking at these more in depth during today’s session
  • Offereings in English, Science, Math, Social Studies provide tools for secondary teachers to maximize their effectiveness. Each of the courses feature Critical Mistakes matrix which identifies the most common mistakes that students make.

Courses are aligned to state standards and include alignment to state end of course exams where applicable. Courses can be reorganized to align with district scope and sequence and current textbooks.

  • English courses contain enough seat time hours for a year long course and offer a variety of activities. Research paper is culminating lesson in each of the courses. This provides lessons that teach the research process and then the students actually write a research paper. The writing lesson guides the student through the completion of a research paper. Preceding the research writing, the research chapter uses articles that relate to the research project. Communication lessons teach the purpose , elements and structure of various modes of communication for example verbal and non verbal and then the students learn how to participate in an interview----a real world scenario.
