Smaller Learning Communities Option at P-CEP

Post Date:01/10/2019 9:28 AM
  • School NameP-CEP

PCEP Class of 2023 logo on green backgroundSmaller Learning Communities are a personalized, interdisciplinary approach to learning for 9th grade students. The goal of our 9th grade Smaller Learning Communities (SLCs) is to assist students in making a successful transition from middle school to high school and to be able to offer rich learning experiences that connect and are relevant. Teams of two teachers (World History and World Literature/English 9) support students academically and foster connectedness with peers in smaller environments within students’ home buildings.

● The student’s SLC team (World Literature/English 9 and World History) is assigned approximately 60 students in a two-hour block of time.
● Students are mixed among their other classes rather than scheduled with the same group of students each hour.
● Teachers may plan integrated lessons and projects, confer regularly regarding student progress, and take part in assemblies and field trips.
● Projects based learning and cross-curricular instruction between World History and World Literature/English 9 may possibly be explored.
