Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blair District Curriculum
Students in grades K-12 learn a great deal in reading, as it is a spiraling curriculum. Standards include: using many genres of literature to evaluate, analyze, and make connections and inferences. The students are taught to master these skills using different genres of text to aid in critical thinking skills and to reinforce comprehension. Branching over into history, a variety of nonfiction is read, such as historical texts, biographies, and books on varying cultures are analyzed.
Mathematics, which also builds on foundations, has standards that contain goals such as showing relationships among complex numbers (secondary level), exploring irrational numbers, comparing and contrasting numbers that are complex, as well as their properties, and the demonstration of operations using real numbers. The development of mathematic literacy, understanding of practical applications, and ability to communicate mathematic thought are all central to the curriculum.

Many lessons have technology incorporated into them, and this not only helps the teacher with the delivery of content, but the students as well. Technology usage, such as iPads, computer labs, laptop mobile labs, and Smartboards keep the students engaged and their minds enriched. Many schools have funded a variety of technology tools, and the students are enjoying school much more as they discover much more!
