Compass Learning for 3rd Grade

My students need individualized and differentiated curriculum that Compass Learning provides.

  • $5,036 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

As a teacher, I need more time as the "guide on the side" than the "sage on the stage." An effective classroom blends whole group instruction with individualized instruction. I need tools in order to increase the amount of time students are working on high quality curriculum at their own pace.

My students come from homes that value education and success is expected.

The students are involved in many extra curricular activities that limit the amount of time they are able to complete homework at home. As a result, every minute in the classroom must be maximized.

My Project

My students will be able to log onto Compass Learning Odyssey in the classroom on a daily basis. Students will experience personalized learning across the curriculum. Compass Learning tailors learning objectives, content, and pace to each student's needs. The program evaluates strengths and weaknesses in subject areas and prescribes personalized learning pathways . This will enable each child to work at their own level. I will be able to spend more time as the "guide on the side."

When logged onto Compass Learning, students will receive direct instruction through reading passages, manipulatives, videos, and animations.

Students will be exposed to rigorous content in every subject aligned with Common Core State Standards. It is a great challenge to differentiate each subject matter for 27 students with varied skills and abilities. Research indicates that this tool will improve student achievement immediately and provide for significant gains in 21st century skills.
