M.O.O.S.E. Elementary

M.O.O.S.E. (My Open Online School Experience) is a blended learning program designed for elementary-aged children of an ELL background.
M.O.O.S.E Program

Xspace is excited to be launching its first elementary program, M.O.O.S.E. (My Open Online School Experience). Targeting K-7 students of an ELL background, M.O.O.S.E. seeks to provide a personalized educational journey for children through a dual-instructor model that can bring the most appropriate digital and online resources to each child. One instructor creates and adjusts the curriculum based on each student’s learning ability; the other instructor facilitates class activities in a virtual group setting and engage students with course materials. Although classes happen in an online setting, course assignments extend to the offline environment where children and family are invited to explore their local community for a hands-on learning experience.

Curriculum

Currently, M.O.O.S.E. offers English Language Arts courses to students. M.O.O.S.E. English courses are based upon the British Columbia Ministry of Education English Language Arts curriculum, focusing on reading and responding to a variety of materials, including story and informational text, and on Canadian content and worldviews. Students will develop strong communication skills, an understanding of English language and literature, and digital literacy skills important to 21st century learning. Students are guided to think critically, creatively and reflectively, while building a sense of personal identity and being respectful of various perspectives and worldviews.
