2 1. The High School Model Take a class not available on your campus Make up lost credit Amend a scheduling conflict Earn concurrent college [HS] credit Prepare for the ISAT [ACT, SAT] Review for the AP exams [prepare for AP] from TFHS Registration Guide p.55 [shows amendments] Reasons to take IDLA courses include: (i.e. reasons TFSD will pay for the course)

3 1. The High School Model Resources Needed: 1. A computer at the back of a teachers room to be used during a class or 2. A mini computer lab with an adult assistant 3. The Autonomous Learner Model Type of Credit: 1. Elective: to offer a course not available on campus 2. Core: Taken in the summer at parents cost so they can make room in their schedules for more on-line electives during the school year 3. Core: Taken in the school year because the advanced level is not offered at the school

4 2. The School Mentor Model Resources Needed: 1. A computer 2. School mentor 3. One period not scheduled 4. Alternate work when the on-line course is finished Type of Credit: 1. Core: Parents pay This may be through IDLA or HS credit given through on-line universities

5 3. The Compacting Model After students are given a short time to study the next chapter, they are given a test to see if they have reached mastery. If so, they can work on the on-line course.

6 3. The Compacting Model Resources Needed: 1. A computer in the Core Classroom 2. The Autonomous Learner Model Type of Credit: 1. Elective: a course that allows investigation into a subject of interest to the student and requires application of skills learned in the compacted class 2. Core: an advanced course, the same subject as the compacted class, that builds on the skills learned in class

7 4. The Team Learning Model 1. To be with other GT students Where intensity is accepted and valued 2. To Allow Content Acceleration Breadth: going faster means more content covered 3. To Allow Content Enrichment Depth: going faster means many details about one idea are explored A team of 3-5 students take the same IDLA class at the same time. Created to meet these needs:

8 4. To Promote Social Skills Allowing students to work as a team and develop synergy, feeding off each others ideas 5. To Teach Leadership Skills Understanding roles and working towards goals (7 Habits by S. Covey) 6. To Teach The Positive Aspects of Competition 4. The Team Learning Model
