MEK Learning Circles Overview

The MEK Learning Circles combine the one-on-one learning values of step-by-step concept instruction, immediate application, and instant teacher feedback with the group class benefits of active interaction and engagement. In small student groups of 8 or fewer, students meet with their teachers to complete           practice work and review work immediately, as well as participating in group activities that enhance classroom interaction and engagement.

 

Upon completion of an MEK evaluation test based on Common Core State Standards (CCSS), students are assessed in order to be placed into small groups, of which all students have similar skill levels and needs. This allows for a more individualized approach to learning, as all students’ needs will be met.

 

All Learning Circles are available for students in grades 4-8. Classes are once a week for 90 minutes each.
