STUDENT CENTERED TEACHING AND LEARNING

 

THE INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM AT ASHS SITES IS DESIGNED TO MEET THE ACADEMIC NEEDS OF STUDENTS WHO ARE PREPARING FOR THE GED TEST, TWO AND FOUR YEAR COLLEGES AND THE WORKPLACE.

 

After registration and placement testing, students are assigned classes based on reading levels.  At each level of instruction, Basic, Pre-GED and GED, students have an opportunity to improve their skills in each of the five areas on the GED test:

 

       Language arts writing

       Language arts reading

       Social studies

       Science

       Mathematics

 

Instruction in the subject areas is enhanced by using computer assisted instruction and internet access. In addition to content area studies, GED classes focus on the development of higher order thinking skills such as analysis, application and synthesis. Mastery of these skills is important for success on the GED test.

 

FLEXIBILITY IS THE KEY

 

ASHS teachers employ individual, small group and whole group instructional methods to help students learn subject matter, develop higher order thinking skills and master test taking skills.  ASHS administrators and teachers know that students have a variety of learning styles, and that one key element in the learning process is flexibility. 

 

Each student progresses at his own pace, and takes the GED test when hes attained a required score on the school administered practice GED test or predictor.

 

Students attend classes in one of three convenient time slots:

 

 2 hours in the morning from 8:30 A.M. to 11A.M., Mon. through Fri.

 2 hours in the afternoon from 12:15 P.M. to 2:45 P.M., Mon .through Fri.

 3 hours in the evening from 5:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M., Mon. through Thurs.
