The reports contain vital information at a level of detail that helps the teacher not only what a student learned by how a student learned.
Our cloud technology gives students access to learning any time of day. It also allows us to measure time on task and mastery of skills.

not competes against it ”

WHY IT WORKS
Multi-disciplinary by Design
We offer teachers follow steps that help design and deliver multi-disciplinary integrated curriculum Units, customized to each student or a project team. While activities steps can tailored to meet unique needs, all DORS Lesson Activities follow this same framework and structure culminating in a completed self contained project. Each completed project can be awarded prizes from participating partners, internships or mastery of skills merit badges. Fig. A demonstrates the broad outline of this model.
Common Core Ready
Each DORS online Lesson Activity is connected to our ‘Common Core Navigator’ , linking the lesson activity to a library of online content, STEM industry mentoring partners, blended learning practices and skill building activities. As the student builds their 'Portfolios of Success' by completing the activity each one has a direct alignment with common core standards. The DORS team of education specialists reviews each activity to meet that academic, cultural and social needs of the student. All on an accelerated pace towards preparation for higher level math classes and college preparation.
Each DORS Activities then can be linked directly to a classroom teacher’s lesson and depth of knowledge plans. This extends learning time for students all documented in user friendly easy to read reports.
