Highly Unique Blended (HUB) Middle School Model

  • Dr. Johnson at McConnell Middle GOC has developed a blended middle school model in which local middle schools partner with GOC to deliver online courses to face-to-face students in two different models. The first model is a whole class approach in which students all take the same GOC course together during the school day. The second model is an a la carte model in which many students take a variety of classes at the same time. Both models utilize a GOC teacher as the teacher-of-record and a local school staff member monitoring the students.

    The start of the 2019-2020 school year launched a new partnership between Gwinnett Online Campus (GOC) and McConnell. A blended learning team has been formed to serve 7th-grade students in a virtual classroom for social studies with their GOC teacher and a traditional classroom setting for other subjects.
