3 Learning Models
Christ Lutheran is excited to welcome students to learning for the 2020-21 school year, whether they are on campus or at a distance!
To personalize the education path for students, families have the option to choose between three learning models – campus, distance, or blended. All three models are interconnected and offer core academics with authentic mastery that support accreditation expectations and graduation requirements.
The campus model provides teacher directed instruction with traditional and non-traditional methods in a classroom setting where students engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate through the learning process. Students are supported in executive skill development for self-directed and group learning. Collaborative activities equip students to develop communication and problem-solving skills. Students develop digital literacy skills to connect to the curriculum, boost creativity, and think and apply for redesign.
The blended model is a combination of distance and campus learning. This option is designed for virtual learning with the option to attend selected activities on campus according to the individual student. Families work with the school to develop a plan as they identify what works best for the child. This model works well for students who are successful with independent distance learning and benefit from partial on-campus involvement. Choices for on-campus activities are approved by administration and depend on the individual (may include recess, PE, art class, science lab, etc.).
The distance model is for families or students who are more successful in a different learning environment than the traditional on-campus model. The coursework provided by the Christ Lutheran classroom teacher includes core subjects and enrichment courses - Discipleship, ELA, math, science, history, PE, and art. The curriculum follows state and national standards and is a mix of on- and off-screen learning activities which emphasize skill development and experiences which connect content to curriculum. Community is valued in our distance learning option and opportunities are planned for students to meet with the distance learning facilitator and virtually connect with the on-campus classroom.
