Red Comet offers a complete online program that is both rigorous and engaging. Red Comet is approved by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) in Washington State as a “Multi-District Online Course Provider” and as a “Multi-District Online School Program Provider”. Red Comet’s online program excels not only in the breadth of its offering but also has received the best ratings for student satisfaction in OSPI student satisfaction surveys. Red Comet’s online learning is engaging and presents even the most challenging topics in a way that students can understand. Students taking Red Comet’s online high school classes are challenged using a variety of learning techniques which makes learning interesting while keeping them motivated to complete their courses within the allotted schedule.
Red Comet’s updated curriculum emphasizes effective study habits in a student. Students are expected to study on a regular basis. Consistent effort is encouraged throughout the course. The curriculum exposes the student to many different types of learning, including – exploratory, visual, audio and independent thinking.
Red Comet’s updated curriculum stresses reading comprehension skills; students are required to read passages related to course content and answer quizzes correctly before moving to the next material. The restructured curriculum exposes students to research skills since they have to research new material outside of the course content – either at their school library or on online resources and write essays on the required topics. Students develop writing skills as part of their assignments and essays and develop critical thinking skills when critiquing reading passages.
Red Comet’s online program emphasizes cross-disciplinary curriculum at every possible opportunity. The program looks to introduce the same topics in different course material so the students learn the same concept from multiple perspectives. Red Comet teachers have experience teaching courses in different subject areas. It is very easy for them to draw parallels on subject matter from different areas. For instance, when discussing chemical reactions, the teacher might use the basic principles of algebra to help the student understand how to balance equations.
“The Red Comet online curriculum supports success for all students—from those not prepared for grade-level academic challenges to those capable of advanced course work. School districts can successfully use our online curriculum to meet needs ranging from credit recovery to original credit, from building foundational skills to creating opportunities for advanced course work,” said Dr. Jay Srinivasan, Managing Director of Red Comet.
“The updated curriculum uses several of the new technologies that are currently available including audio, video, images and animations. Several new courses are developed and added to the updated curriculum. The Red Comet curriculum supports many different styles of learning – auditory, visual, human-interaction based and exploratory learning. Students can use multiple methods to absorb the academic material,” said Ms. Sapna Ganeshan, President of Red Comet.
