Math & L.A. and Writing
Acellus: My Village utilizes Acellus, an online curriculum, in both our Small Group Tutoring Program at the Palm City building and for students who are going to use the program only at home. With your child's Acellus subscription, you can choose up to 6 class offerings. My Village will provide a brief training session for parents to be able to use the program and track their child's progress. The options for the level of support are listed below.
How the Acellus Program works: First, students are given an assessment to determine their appropriate level in Math and Language Arts and then Mrs. Lisa will setup their assignments. When they begin a lesson, students watch a short (5-10 minutes) pre-recorded video of a teacher in a classroom presenting the lesson. Then, the student answers questions based on the lesson as well as review questions. Our teachers receive statistics on how the student performed with the questions in real time and provides support as needed. If the student is continuously getting a particular type of question incorrect, the system automatically teaches the lesson again. Each week students have a set of goals to reach in order to complete the grade level for the year. This helps them to stay on track.
Small Group Tutoring (in-person): My Village students, who are enrolled in Small Group Tutoring, are removed from extra-curricular classes twice a day to work on either Math or Language Arts using the Acellus Program. A certified teacher monitors and tutors students in areas of need, discusses goals for learning and challenges their thinking beyond the online platform. There is a maximum of 4 students per class period in Small Group Tutoring. In additional students use the Acellus program at home to be able to reach their goals.
Acellus Subscription with Monitoring (at home/online only): My Village will provide parent training in how to use the Acellus program to view their child's progress. Upon request, the teacher can change courses and answer parent questions regarding their child's progress or any issues with using the program. $40/month
