Blackfoot District and Curriculum
The Blackfoot School District strives to produce students who demonstrate independence. In English and humanities classes, students are expected to understand and evaluate different genres of texts across different disciplines. They must construct effective arguments and convey intricate or complex information. On a basic level, students must be able to understand a speaker’s key points and ask critical questions. Students build on others’ ideas, share their own ideas, and confirm that they understand the speaker’s ideas. Vocabulary and standard English are focused on.
We currently cover the following Blackfoot-area school district: Blackfoot School District #55.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blackfoot District Curriculum
Blackfoot High School students are taught to become independent learners who seek out resources to assist them. Students are taught to comprehend as well as critically discuss their subjects of learning. By remaining open-minded and discerning readers and listeners, students become able to understand what an author or speaker intends, while also questioning an author’s or speaker’s basis for their argument. Students also learn how to cite specific, relevant evidence in their oral and written interpretations of assigned and chosen topics.
Students also are taught to use technology and digital media with ease. Through thoughtful use of technology, they enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use. Because of this understanding and familiarity with technology, students will be well-suited to face coming changes in technology and to utilize it for their own success.

Chalk Talk: Community Colleges
There is an unfortunate stigma around community colleges for some students; community colleges are seen as places one goes because one has to. But there are some advantages to attending a community college. Community colleges offer basic classes that most students would have to take, regardless of major. If a student is undecided about what to study, community college allows that student the opportunity to get the basics out of the way while they decide. Of course, the cost is a major factor; community colleges are significantly cheaper than even state colleges, and this can be perfect for a student who is undecided about his/her major, or whether s/he even wants to go to college. Community colleges are often conveniently located, as well, so that students can commute to classes, which can save money.
