SOI® CERTIFIED LEARNING teaches each student individually. It employs a tutorial model of instruction designed for classroom-sized groups.
The overall goal is to optimally prepare each student for the transition to the more advanced curriculum of the middle grades.
Students learn as independently as possible at their own rate.
Students get immediate help when they experience learning difficulties.
No progress is made without demonstrating learning. Advancement is conditional on documented mastery of the lesson completed.
Students learn perceptual skills, body control, and basic concepts taught at a concrete level. Students are taught, individually, in small groups.
The program requires a minimum of one hour per day. During that hour, each student cycles through three different learning centres.
Students develop basic skills, acquire fundamental learning abilities, and practice skills application. Student progress is monitored, individually, in small groups.
Students are taught by computer-administered lessons. The lessons cover concepts for understanding basic skills and skills application in reading, math and science.
