Ann Arbor District and Curriculum
Ann Arbor Public Schools make use of the resources available to them- including the University of Michigan. The two organizations have teamed up to create the World Languages Program which delivers Spanish language instruction to all elementary students and provides even more language options at the secondary level. Ann Arbor Public Schools are also working hard to close the achievement gap so all students graduate ready for college or the workplace. With many joining National Honor Society each year and a high percentage continuing on to college, AAPS helps students achieve the high expectations the district sets out for them.
We currently cover the following Ann Arbor-area school district: Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ann Arbor District Curriculum
The district's English and Language Arts curriculum gives students a rich literature and language experience. There is a strong focus on vocabulary and word study at all grade levels and upper elementary students take a reader's workshop approach which includes small group instruction and discussion. The curriculum also ensures students are reading authentic texts from a variety of genres at the middle school and high school level. Special emphasis is also given to writing and students ability to create written works for a variety of purposes.
The district uses a well-respected program called Everyday Mathematics to teach numeracy skills and problem solving in the elementary grades. At the middle school level, students learn through lessons but also participate in guided investigations that teach mathematics through discovery. High school students are required to take four years of mathematics and are given a range of options, such as algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus, from which to choose. view all Ann Arbor tutors

- Music Education Programs Honored - Ann Arbor's Huron High School was recognized in 2012 as a semifinalist by the Grammy Foundation for excellence in the area of music and performing arts. Students have a wide range of band, orchestra and choral opportunities and are encouraged to explore music through technology.
- Greening of the Schools - Over a dozen Ann Arbor schools received recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council for their efforts in increasing recycling and reducing waste in their buildings. These improvements certainly mean that the district is harnessing their energy budget, but also provides for countless learning experiences for the students.
- Digital Dialogue - Students at one of the area elementary schools had an opportunity to develop their writing skills through a program called "Digital Dialogue." Students are linked to students in another country over the internet to have conversations, form new bonds, and learn about different parts of the world. The upside is that all this is done while the students are writing in an authentic context.

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of Small Group Instruction
Teachers use flexible small group instruction to work with different reading levels within a classroom. However, this doesn't mean students receive different sets of expectations. Instead, all students receive instruction on the same reading skills, things like finding the main idea or identifying main characters, but since texts are selected to match reading levels, everyone will be able to read and practice those skills. These groups can also be used so that students work together at similar levels or are grouped for proximal, peer-to-peer learning.
