Project ESCOLAR

Project ESCOLAR aims to improve science learning for your child. This project is designed to help all students learn, and may be especially helpful for students with learning disabilities.

Collaborative
Online Learning

Your child will complete Collaborative Online Learning units 
in the following subject areas:
Image
These are called Collaborative Online Learning units because they help students do projects together to learn science. Students use technology tools to learn in different ways—with games, videos, text, interactive features, and computer simulations.

As they go through each unit, students use an online forum to discuss what they are learning with other students, in their own classrooms and in classrooms at other schools. Students also keep online notes to record what they do in their lessons.

How to Help Your
Child Succeed

When parents/guardians are part of their child’s education, that child has a better chance of succeeding in school. You can help your child succeed with ESCOLAR by taking an active part in his/her learning.

Hover over the image to see how you can help your child learn science with ESCOLAR units. 

• Ask your child what part of the unit s/he is studying so you know what s/he is learning and how s/he is progressing.

• With your child or by yourself, review the part of the ESCOLAR unit your child studied that day.

• Look over your child’s notes and quizzes to check whether s/he has completed all the activities at each stage.

• Ask your child if s/he has completed the forum activity. If not, support him/her in doing so.

• Relate what your child is learning to everyday life. For example, if your child is studying viruses, talk about ways s/he can stay healthy.

• Watch your child’s progress on the website, and make sure s/he is keeping up with the class. If your child is behind, encourage him/her to catch up by doing activities on the unit at home.

Student Outcomes

Project ESCOLAR’s Collaborative Online Learning units take advantage of Project-Based Learning principles to engage students in science.

Hover over the image to see some benefits for students who study with the ESCOLAR units.

• Free access to online science resources.

• Increased science knowledge (documented in studies with sixth- to eighth-grade students, including English language learners and students with learning disabilities).

• Improved proficiency in academic reading.

• More positive attitudes towards science.

• Opportunities, with an online forum, to collaborate with others in their class and in other schools.

Homeschooling Your Child?  
ESCOLAR is a Great Fit!

ESCOLAR is a great resource for homeschool parents, who may have very little knowledge or experience with science subject areas. Homeschool students can advance through the curriculum at their own pace, and parents can help them carry out their own scientific investigations and experiments.
