Title IV, Part B
Backbone Communications implements 21st Century Community Learning Center programs designed to help children in at-risk schools succeed academically through the use of scientifically-based practice and extended learning time.
Our “21st Century Classroom Concept” engages students, increases interactivity within the classroom, and provides true differentiated instruction.
1. Classroom Student Response System
Provides teachers with tools to improve student learning and make targeted decisions through the use of interactive academic competitions, challenging quizzes, and automated assessments — all in the classroom setting.
- Bank of over 30,000 questions aligned to all state standards and objectives to address Nevada learning requirements.
- Students compete for points in competition-style challenges or use a self-paced quiz format for informal formative assessments.
- High-energy classroom activities motivate students to participate and focus their attention on specific learning objectives.
- Scaffolded learning design with clues and follow-up facts.

- At what level does a student function in reading and math?
- How will a student perform on high-stakes tests?
- What instruction will best benefit the student?
- Is the student progressing?
