English-Language Arts: Students will use EL Education for English-Language Arts curriculum. Our approach to curriculum makes standards come alive for students by connecting learning to real-world issues and needs. Academically rigorous, project-based learning expeditions, case studies, projects, fieldwork, and service learning inspire students to think and work as professionals, contributing high-quality work to authentic audiences beyond the classroom.
Mathematics: We are adopting enVision Mathematics for our curriculum. Lessons start with Problem-Based Learning (PBL), where students must think critically about a real-world math problem, evaluate options, collaborate, and present solutions. This is followed by Visual Learning to solidify the underlying math concepts. It’s the best way to help kids better understand math ideas.
Science and Social Studies: Teachers will use a project-based approach to teaching the science and social studies standards.
Instructional Strategies: Teachers will use project-based learning, service learning, and social emotional learning strategies to engage students. Students will also receive direct instruction, small group instruction, and effective integration of technology.
