Improve the performance and retention of your virtual students with Calvert’s PLUS research-based instructional approach to online curriculum. This pedagogical approach promotes active and project-based learning. Students collaborate with peers on fun and challenging projects that demonstrate understanding.

PLUS Framework:
Calvert’s new research-based, digitally-supported, instructional approach

PROJECT — Projects are tailored to add fun and engagement to motivate student learning through standards-based content. These activities support student collaboration, allowing them to engage in a sense of community with teachers and other students.

LEARN — Through our careful choice of interactive digital activities, students are encouraged to think for themselves. Frequent Quick Checks provide formative assessment opportunities, and quick feedback can easily suggest additional remediation or enhancements as necessary.

USE — At the end of every lesson, we formally check that students have achieved the deeper learning (i.e., mastery) of the concepts. These assessments are standards-aligned, constructed response, and sometimes technology-enhanced items designed to show mastery.

SHOW — We provide many creative opportunities for students to showcase what they’ve learned in exciting ways, driving them closer to a meaningful understanding. Students also have the chance to get helpful feedback from the other students they’ve been collaborating with in addition to celebrating successes.

All delivered through the Calvert Teaching Navigator (CTN) or integrated into your school’s online learning management system.

We’ve loved many things about the Calvert curriculum. Everything is so user-friendly, so vetted, so proven – really, second to none.  Student achievement is a natural result of Calvert’s decades of experience. We’ve even attracted new families because of Calvert… the Calvert legacy speaks for itself.
