Exciting new learning opportunities are here at Pelion Middle! In an effort to meet the needs of our 21st Century Learners and to provide an education that will ensure they are College and Career Ready, we have implemented Blended Learning in our Math and ELA classrooms. Students will experience a variety of learning opportunities through small and large group direct instruction, collaborative peer learning activities and individualized digital learning programs. Instruction will be more individualized and student-driven. Daily formative assessment data will be used to meet each student’s changing needs!

We are excited to introduce our students to two new digital content providers that are very respected in the education community. ELA students will be interacting with Newsela, which is a program that provides reading/writing content and activities tailored to meet each individual student needs. With a massive database of high-interest material that increases daily, Achieve 3000 meets students where they are and provides rich learning opportunities to ensure their continuous growth.
Math classes will be utilizing ALEKS Math, which is an exciting web-based learning system that has rapidly been adopted by public schools and colleges throughout the US, due to its proven ability to improve student learning in math. Again, ALEKS meets students at their learning level and provides rich, individualize learning opportunities to improve their mathematical content knowledge. The fact that the ALEKS digital learning program does not involve the use of multiple choice questions makes this program unique. ALEKS continuously monitors student work and adjusts to meet the student’s needs. To learn more about ALEKS, watch the video below or click on the link to read an overview of ALEKS.
Once again, we are very excited about Blended Learning at Pelion Middle. If you have questions concerning the implementation of Blended Learning at Pelion Middle, please call or email Mr. Matthews (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Whisennant (email@example.com) for more information.
