The MAIA Pilot will…
Ease the burden on schools that have a limited amount of qualified English Language teachers.
Ease the burden on teachers who have a limited amount of time to teach English Language students.
Enable English Language students to practice reading, writing, listening and speaking in content areas.
Enable teachers to track student progress in language skills in content areas.
“Beginning in the 4th grade, students are expected to know how to read well enough to learn academic content by reading informational and literacy texts writing in more complex language than they have encountered earlier in school. This is the point at which many English Learners falter.”
– The National Academies Press
We invite any teacher who has 4th and 5th grade ELLs in their classroom.
Students will be assigned four AI powered frontloading lessons; one each in Science, Math, Social Studies and Language Arts. Each lesson is approximately 20 minutes in length with a 10 minutes quiz following the lesson.
The Pilot will be open on October 28th and will end on December 15th, 2019.
Teachers will be provided with login details and access codes for the students to use in the classroom.
The National Academies Press states that “Only 63 percent of ELLs graduate from high school, compared with the overall national rate of 82 percent.”
To review student progress during our pilot, teachers will have access to a limited set of features as our platform is still being developed based on ongoing feedback, including:
- Add & manage students
- View lessons
- View student results
- View student pronunciation and spelling errors
