Learning Support includes many benefits for students, including teacher expertise, student accountability, structure, group discussion, and camaraderie. Students must move at a regular pace determined by the syllabus and adjusted by the teacher as needed. Students must be able to meet deadlines.
Small class sizes allows teachers to pay attention to individual students in a group setting. Class size is limited to ensure maximum benefit to all students. Teachers are available for questions outside of class, as well, both by phone and email. It is MODG's intention that the Learning Support classes will facilitate discussion in your home and enhance your child’s learning experience, without replacing you as the primary educator.
Our goal is that all MODG students benefit from these classes. However, students who may need to go at a slower pace than the syllabus due to learning challenges with particular concepts may want to consider utilizing either the new Special Services Learning Support classes or Teacher Services at the Directed or Enhanced Directed level, in lieu of standard LS classes.
