The Etude Group, the non-stock corporation that oversees IDEAS Academy, The Mosaic School and ESAA, has chosen to pilot a program at The Mosaic School and IDEAS Academy in which students will use electronic textbooks.
The Humanities curriculum at IDEAS Academy will consist of three separate course offerings: American Studies, Global Studies and an individualized Global Issues course. Students will earn one social studies credit per course as well as .5 English credits per course. Students will earn additional English credit each year through Academic Writing (.25) and Communications (.25), totaling one full English credit. The social studies credit will be founded upon extensive historical analysis, research, interpretation and application. The English credit will be offered based on the standards of writing, listening, reading, speaking, research/inquiry and vocabulary development.
