With CLEF’s help of purchasing Chromebooks and classroom cameras, all CLEF schools can offer hybrid or remote learning as needed. Due to the shift in classroom settings, project-based curriculum has never been more necessary. Five of the schools in the CLEF network (Bethesda International Academy, Good Shepherd Christian Academy, Grace Christian Academy, St. John’s Lutheran School, St. Philip Lutheran School) are receiving the MyView and MyPerspectives program.
MyView is a literacy program for grades K-5 that offers both an entirely digital and print based format. This program is structured around a workshop approach to reading and writing instruction. To continue with CLEF’s work in bringing innovation into the classroom, the program also offers a project-based learning unit every few weeks that give teachers and students the chance to engage in meaningful inquiry.
The MyPerspectives program is offered for students in grades 6-8 that is an entirely digital format and print format, too. The program has an ideal balance of teacher led instruction and independent student-centered focused activities. Teachers and students have access to a digital library of 140+ eBooks. The resources in this program are abundant and are specifically designed to prepare students for the 21st century competencies.
These new program materials are all made possible through generous donations to CLEF!
