Freedman Institute of Transitional Education (FITE)
The Freedmen Institute of Transitional Education (FITE) is an accelerated individualized learning program designed to assist students with “moving in, moving through and moving out” of life's transitions.
We do not hide the fact that we utilize technology as the primary educator in our program. Students are presented with subject content in engaging, relevant, and motivating learning experiences.
FITE’s curriculum focuses on skills and capabilities that will serve learners at work, in college, and in life. Our program addresses the essential basic and secondary math, communication, and critical thinking skills needed for success. Embedded within our instruction are literacy skills in comprehension, analysis, application, and synthesis. Students will also learn support skills to help the acquire new knowledge and abilities.
We do not hide the fact that we utilize technology as the primary educator in our program. Students are presented with subject content in engaging, relevant, and motivating learning experiences. They draw faster connections to the information and retain more of what they learn. As students work through the recommended lessons, the programs algorithms advances the student through more advanced content. The program uses dialectical instruction which involves the student in two-way conversations with the content and with their own thought processes (Essential Education, 2017). Our instructors utilize this “hack” to work 1-on-1 with their students to monitor and intervene when necessary in order to ensure success.
