Modular/Lab-based Model for English

A modular approach breaks the learning sequence into smaller pieces referred to as modules or units. Technology is often used to facilitate students’ progress through the course content to create an accelerated learning sequence, so this model is often, but not always, implemented through use of a computer lab.

Pearson offers technology solutions to support modules across the curriculum: MyWritingLab™, MyReadingLab™, MySkillsLab®, and MyFoundationsLab®. Each program offers adaptive tools to give students a personalized learning experience, while allowing them to move through course content
at an accelerated pace.

Adaptive Learning and Acceleration in MyFoundationsLab

Students get started in MyFoundationsLab by taking a Path Builder diagnostic assessment, designed to cover developmental math and English competencies. Based on their Path Builder results, students then receive a personalized set of content modules, in a format called the Learning Path. Each content module in a student’s Learning Path covers a general concept such as “Basic Grammar.” Once inside a module, a student takes a shorter diagnostic, called a Skills Check, which defines the exact topics a student needs to understand in order to prove mastery for the module. These topics, for example, might include “Verbs” or ideas related to the larger module concept.
