Program of Instruction
Leadership Learning Academy’s Ogden campus will offer the innovative and unique teaching model of Project CHILD. Currently, Leadership Learning Academy is the only public school in Utah that offers this research-based instructional model. The Project CHILD model is not only unique, but it has proven to be very successful at Leadership Learning Academy.
Project CHILD is managed by Innovative Educational Programs and is a research-based teaching and learning system. Our model emphasizes reading, writing, and mathematics. Science and social studies curriculum are incorporated throughout day-to-day instruction.
Project CHILD is a three-dimensional model that differs from the traditional model which is designed around a single teacher in a single grade. The CHILD triangulated design changes the traditional classroom in several dynamic ways:
- Three teachers form cluster teams (one teacher for reading, one for writing, and one for mathematics)
- Cluster teams work across three grade levels (grades 1-3 for a primary cluster, and grades 4-6 for an intermediate cluster)
- Teachers work with the same students for three years, which provides an opportunity for teachers to become experts in each student’s individual strengths and abilities as well as an increased understanding of how to work with each student’s weaknesses
- Teachers collaborate with each other and discuss effective instructional techniques for each individual child and create a three year team-teaching method.
The teaching methods in CHILD are also different than the traditional one-teacher/one-classroom teaching style. After direct instruction from the teacher, students work independently and then in collaborative groups at three types of “learning stations” within their cluster. Students rotate to the three classrooms in their cluster for 90-minute rotations each day. Each classroom has a Computer Station for technology-based work, a Textbook Station for paper/pencil and project work, and three Activity Stations in that specific subject area for hands-on work. There is also a Teacher Station in every classroom for small group tutorials and individual assistance. There are six stations the students may attend each day.

The Project CHILD model is not only innovative, but it has been enthusiastically embraced by our stakeholders. LLA is excited to provide Ogden with this incredible option and we look forward to serving your students.
