A Day at Mosaic Academy Corona

There are two types of days at Corona Student Center’s Mosaic Program.

Mark is a 6th grader. On a classroom day (Wed-Fri), he participates in engaging lessons from the teacher, collaborates with other students to complete a literature project, works independently on his reading, and works with a partner to review for a math test. Classroom laptops are available to use to review math, check comprehension with Accelerated Reader, and to research science and social studies content for projects.

Mark and his mom discuss the choices and decide to explore. They go to a marshland habitat not far from their home, and they begin exploring. Mark has a journal that he uses to take notes, draw pictures, and jot down his thoughts. After a couple of hours, the two return home, where Mark completes his assignment, feeling invigorated from the learning experience. He is excited to get back to work and take a look at his choices for math…
