Mountain View Christian Home School has drawn inspiration from the conventional textbook format and divided it into bite sized, achievable workbooks called PACEs.
Each PACE provides about the same amount of learning and time requirement of a textbook. Each level consists of 12 PACEs in a subject. PACEs integrate Godly character building lessons into the academic content. They are carefully designed to develop thinking skills and create mastery learning.
Students begin their PACE work by setting their goals. These goals include the concepts they will learn, a Bible verse, and a corresponding character trait. From the very beginning of each PACE segment, they know what is expected of them, and they assume the responsibility for their own learning.
Full color explanations and illustrations add excitement to each lesson, and innovative learning activities reinforce the interesting text material. This will help your student learn quickly and in ways that are helpful to them.
Each PACE contains checkups which are mini tests covering a section of the PACE. If mastery in an area is not achieved, the checkup will reveal the weak areas. Students can then take the time necessary to review and learn those concepts. This helps to provide mastery of the subject in your students.
Upon completion of the activities and checkups, the students prepare to take the self test with a practice test. Here, students evaluate themselves and a supervisor or tutor determines readiness for the final test. When the self test is successfully completed, the student turns in the PACE and takes the final test the next school morning. The final test objectively measures student mastery of the material, and will allow your student to move on to the next PACE.
