Bayaan Academy 4 Differentiation Strategies From Competition

  • Teachers, as front-line members take lead in engaging deeply with the students. They personally get to know more about the student character by going into details such as who they are in a worldly sense (ethnicity, religion, culture, their unique standing, their cultural history & etc). Better understanding of the students give them the flexibility and opportunity to exploit individual strength and focus on their weakness.
  • We are constantly inculcating and encourage reflective thought (why I study this, how does it link to my life, what could I have done better, etc). In-class feedback and written feedback on work is one of the mediums we have been using for Bayaan students. Similarly, post any project, teachers are providing appropriate time for students to reflect and evaluate on their performance by focussing on skills throughout a course, as well as the content, teachers enable students to pick up useful tools to aid them in the future, meaning they can function in society in an informed manner.
  • We aim to facilitate students on their journey of education in the best way possible (in the true meaning of the word ‘education’, meaning ‘to lead’).
  • Each teacher seeking to provide students with the means of accessing knowledge, and at the same time recognize a student’s potential and encourage them to exert their best efforts to achieve this potential – this looks very different across the range of learners, as some will perform very well through focused study, whilst others may not exert any effort towards achieving their potential, but through constant feedback, and intervention measures (such as having 1-to-1s with failing students to discuss their progress, meeting with parents, setting up meetings with the principal, or ‘downing tools’ every now and again to re-focus) teachers can improve this.
  • We hope for the education to be more than ‘conveying information’ and ‘getting grades’ (even though this remains part of it), but rather want the education to be holistic, taking effect on every sphere of a student’s life/ being.
  • As well as understanding their worldly identity, students are constantly reminded, in an organic, unintrusive, non-judgmental way, about the Islamic view on anything they are presented with (connecting to spiritual/ mental wellbeing, etc)
  • This can be a small comment relating to a topic of study, or a full-fledged project centered on Islamic content, or anything in between. Students may have questions, doubts, fears, associated with their psycho-spiritual reality, and staff are open to these questions, etc. and equipped to give an answer or to signpost children in the required direction.
  • On a wider level, as Muslims, we exist by default as part of a global Ummah, and within Bayaan, as an online school with teachers, students, and other staff based all over the world, this understanding is palpable. We provide a multicultural environment with students and staff spreading across 9+ different countries.

  • Ultimately, our philosophy culminates in the ability to reflect on ourselves in order to continually strive to achieve our full potential as world citizens. In measuring ourselves as leaders and facilitators using these criteria, we hope that the same values will ripple outwards through the actions of our learners, enabling them to successfully navigate the difficult terrain of the real world with clarity, skill, and confidence.

Tailored & Focused Approach

Tailored & Focused Approach

  • We ensure that each student is encouraged to reach their potential, encouraging effort, and excellence in how they do things
  • Our approach enables each learner to get through their secular learning, gain the requisite Grade Point Average, and leave the academy with a transcript/ diploma which opens doors to them in other institutes such as colleges, etc.

Islamic approach to secular subjects

  • We follow the US Core Curriculum, covering the required essentials, yet filtering out certain content which does not accord with, or may be unsuitable for, a Muslim audience.
  • Teachers are compensated for time to pre-read material to prepare lessons and also ensure an Islamic message is cascaded down to the students.
  • Project based learning is used as a means to reinforce isamic values and history.

Convenience

  • Relatively easy to access our learning – All students and teachers have personal login details
  • Each student placed in appropriate age/ ability grade, and provided with set times for class
  • As an institute dealing with partner institutes, the timings of such are taken into account when scheduling academy hours
  • Similarly, our teachers are advised to be conscious of how much homework demands they place on students who may be pursuing Islamic studies beyond Bayaan Academy (hifz/alim(ah) course, etc.
  • 80% of our classes are gender segregation as per Islamic norms.
  • The platform is safe for students
  • No private messaging
  • Parents have full access to their child’s learning. Through the LMS portal, you can easily view your child’s lessons, homework assignments, and individual progress.

Sincerity / Transparency in our service

  • Communication channels are kept open between teachers and parents – e.g. teachers are advised to give bi-weekly updates as to student progress, using Schoology LMS.
  • Two way communication – We provide guidelines on improving the students development and parents have the option to request and schedule one-on-one meetings with their children.
  • We make note of the non-progressing students and therefore take necessary actions to inform and update the parents. At Bayaan we are fully dedicated towards the improvement of the child and therefore in cases like this we involve the Principal and a meeting is scheduled to take further joint improvement actions for the child welfare.
  • The Principal regularly updates parents/ students
  • Principal deals directly with parent complaints/ queries, and updates them about actions taken.

Islamic environment

  • We follow the US Core Curriculum, covering the required essentials, yet filtering out certain content which does not accord with, or may be unsuitable for, a Muslim audience.
  • Teachers are compensated for time to pre-read material to prepare lessons and also ensure an Islamic message is cascaded down to the students.
  • Project based learning is used as a means to reinforce isamic values and history.

Character Development

  • Soft-skills Embedded – within assignments/ projects/ classroom activities, teachers seek to embed a skills-based approach, so that students gain that which can aid them in their vocational progression beyond the classroom (presentation skills, report writing, essay research, citation, public speaking, etc)
  • Tarbiyah – 20% of our grade in each year is given over to ‘Class Participation’, and this includes students’ overall behaviour with teachers, colleagues, etc. Islamic Studies lessons center on akhlaq/adab (good behavior and manners) and strengthening a child’s Muslim identity, enabling them to know how best to act in any given situation.
  • Education with hands-on approach (project based learning), and a focus on real-world application of knowledge along with Islamic morals.
  • Our classes are open to children of all faiths while conforming to moral principles of Islam; students are expected to interact with a high level of maturity and dignity that is academically focused and God-centered.
