IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE:
Welcome to class, children.
Please put your hands down, and sit at your assigned seat in the computer lab.
Yes, your cubicle partitions should be firmly in place. You will be penalized if your eyes wander into your neighbors testing… I mean learning area.
Now log on to your Pearson Competency Based Education (CBE) platform.
Johnny, are you reading a book? Put that away!
Are we all logged on? Good.
Now complete your latest learning module. Some of you are on module three, others on module ten. Yes, Dara, I know you’re still on module one. You’ll all be happy to know each module is fully aligned with Common Core State Standards. In fact, each module is named after a specific standard. Once you’ve mastered say Module One “Citing Textual Evidence to Determine Analysis” you will move on to the next module, say “Determining Theme or Central Idea for Analysis.”
Johnny, didn’t I tell you to put away that book? There is no reading in school. You’re to read the passages provided by the good people at Pearson. No, you won’t get a whole story.
