Metodology

After enrolling, each student is given credentials to access our learning platform. We use Canvas LMS. Your credentials will be sent to the email registered in your enrollment form.
Preschoolers and grades 1 and 2 use content from Education.com or Spectrum textbooks. Spectrum ebooks can be bought directly from its publisher Carson Dellosa following this link.
From grades 3 to 8, you can choose between using the Study.com curriculum or Spectrum Ebooks. Most parents like Spectrum because those ebooks can be downloaded in PDF format and printed. Your tutor will be happy to help you and show you both contents so you can better decide.  Grades 9 to 12 can only use Study.com.
Each week is presented with content from these sites, assignments, and assessments. All projects can be submitted using Google Drive and pasting the link to your work document inside Canvas LMS.

Tutoring services are available Monday to Friday between 02:00 and 08:00 p.m. Guatemalan hours. All requests for any tutoring or administrative issue must be sent using our Student Services platform.  ISEA Full English does not use JivoChat, Zendesk, or any other medium used for other programs.

 

4 Units = 32 Weeks

The school year is divided into four units; each unit is divided into eight weeks, making 32 weeks for the entire year.  Classes start in the first week of February and finish in the last week of September. Some students can complete earlier but can not send any assignments after September 30th due to regulations by the Guatemalan Ministry of Education.

After each unit, there is an assessment week. One subject that needs to be taken in Spanish is “The Mayan Language,” High School students need to do the “Diagnostic Assessment,”  (MAPGrowth) which is mandatory for all graduate students.

Once a week, and for each grade, teachers will have a videoconference; it is not mandatory to attend but beneficial; it allows students to submit questions about the content from each step. The videoconference is uploaded to Vimeo so students who did not attend can watch it later.

 

Open Curriculum, Open Minds

Each parent is also the first tutor for students enrolled in Preschool, Kinder, or grades 1 to 5. Parents can modify content, assignments, and assessments with the teacher’s approval. The student must get at least 70/100 points to pass any subject. Each student has up to 3 opportunities to do any assessment or submit an assignment. All final grades are given by teachers.

If the student needs to work on his or her English, ISEA also offers a free BrainPOP English Course.
