The e2020 Educational Model for Learning embeds the principles of Universal Design
for Learning (UDL) in its foundational framework. e2020’s team of highly-qualified
teachers, instructional designers, and content-area experts prepares for and constructs
unique course scopes and sequences by layering UDL principles with Quality Standards
for Online Courses in accordance with the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
and conducting research on state and national standards.
e2020 then designs each
lesson with student-centered objectives that maximize the use of Bloom’s Taxonomy
of Learning Domains. Lessons are designed in order to provide the student with an
optimal learning experience that is unique for each course. Students progress through
the lesson with a series of activities such as, direct instruction videos by certified
teachers; vocabulary instruction; interactive lab simulations; journals and essay
writing; 21st century skill activities that include projects, design proposals,
case studies, on-line content reading; and homework/practice before being formatively
assessed with a quiz. Topic test and cumulative exam reviews are provided to reinforce
mastery prior to students’ taking summative assessments.
- Prescriptive, formative and summative assessments Students receive
randomized test items that are aligned to the lesson's objectives even after customized
content changes are made.
- Individualized study plans Create an optional prescriptive curriculum
that only assigns the content that has not yet been mastered.
- Direct Instruction A highly-qualified teacher in every lesson presents
content in video-lecture segments and visual whiteboard displays.
- On-demand feedback Students receive immediate feedback during activities
and can track progress and performance on their home screen.
- eWriting and eNotes Using the Six Traits of Writing rubric, writing
and note-taking opportunities are integrated into each lesson.
- Show Me Tutorials Students can elect to receive additional support
from a new teacher-tutorial during homework practice.
- Integrated online content Media-rich sites supplement additional
content to apply concepts, engage learners and extend instruction.
