With the pressure of preparing students for high-stakes tests requiring teachers to focus on Math and ELA instruction during the school day, little time came be left for enrichment activities, such as STEM and Robotics programs. After School programs are a very effective way to provide extra help to struggling learners, along with incorporating additional activities that may not fit into the regular school schedule.
Acellus can leverage After School programs in providing customized academic support targeting specific areas of weakness. Acellus courses are taught via video instruction, and combined with adaptive and interactive assessments on each concept. Using Vectored Instruction and Prism Diagnostics™ Acellus adapts the course of instruction to the specific needs of each student, providing customized, personalized instruction to fill specific holes in their understanding. This method of differentiating instruction is very effective in helping students master course content – even for courses previously failed. By filling in foundational gaps in their learning, students are able to quickly catch up to grade level expectations.
