The Guided Learning Process
A fully Internet-based curriculum, ODYSSEYWARE enables teachers to effectively direct individual learning experiences for academic success. Using the following Guided Learning Process, teachers and students move through units and courses that are directed toward student mastery.
Through placement testing, teachers identify a student's skill/knowledge base for appropriate grade level placement.
Based on the outcome and student learning style, teachers recommend an individualized strategy and customize curriculum to guide students toward meeting academic goals and performance objectives.
Through the use of organized, structured, and developmentally sequenced instruction supporting established objectives, students direct their own guided learning through each course.
Teachers are able to analyze student progress easily through observation and ongoing formative and summative assessment. Differentiated learning plans can be adjusted as needed.
As the learning process continues, teachers evaluate student performance, determine the level of student mastery, and make changes to strategy as needed to ensure a student's academic success.
Guided learning is an effective teaching and learning method when properly implemented and proficiently delivered.

OnTRACK materials for high school are organized into ten courses, one for each subject area (Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, U.S. History, World History, World Geography, and English I, II, and III). OnTRACK materials for middle school will be organized by grade level, beginning with Grade 8 Mathematics, Science, ELAR, and Social Studies, followed by Grade 7 Mathematics, Science, ELAR, and Social Studies. Within each course are dozens of lessons that align with the STAAR™ requirements. Each lesson includes content written by Texas classroom teachers, opportunities for interactive learning, assessments with meaningful feedback for students, and additional resources.
The following courses have been released to the service centers and are ready for distribution to districts.
Remember, the OnTRACK courses are free for districts to use. To receive copies of a course for use in your district contact the Project Share representative at your service center.
OnTRACK courses have also been developed for use in the Texas Virtual School Network. Region 10 ESC will serve as the online course provider for OnTRACK Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
OnTRACK lessons are written by Texas classroom teachers. Curriculum experts who are former Texas teachers are working to closely align the lessons with State standards, assure the quality of the content and assessment items, and organize the learning materials for online delivery.
