BrightThinker provides quality, character-based digital learning options that equip students to be academically successful, with ample opportunities for practice, deeper learning, and proof of mastery.
Teachers and parents are invested partners in the students’ learning. BrightThinker courses are flexible for teachers and students to use or modify to meet individual needs in a blended environment.
Courses are academically rigorous and provide different levels of learning to meet all necessary state assessment requirements. Throughout the curriculum, students build vocabulary and become better readers by taking
ownership of their learning. Students also receive character education which is embedded within the course material to encourage a life of moral excellence.
BrightThinker curriculum allows students to progress at their own individual rate. Students who are more skilled or have previous knowledge may proceed at a quicker rate in the areas of their strengths. Students who need
more time to grasp academic concepts are encouraged to do their best, but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable. Each core subject consists of 10 units. Typically, students work on one unit in each subject daily. Most students complete at least 60 units per year.
WHAT IS A UNIT?
BrightThinker has taken the traditional-style textbook and divided it into bite-sized, obtainable worktexts called units. Each grade level consists of 10 units in each core subject for a full-credit course. Half-credit courses are usually 5 units.
BrightThinker stands out from other curriculum providers with its individualized, self instructional, mastery-based approach. With minimal assistance, units allow students
to absorb subject material according to their own learning abilities rather than being pushed forward or held back by their abilities and age. Students may move ahead in
some subject areas and proceed at a slower pace in others. Overall, students progress forward once they have demonstrated success.
