Brighton District and Curriculum
The Brighton School District uses Colorado Academic Standards to formulate the academic plan for all students. The curriculum is standards-based and details the overarching goals that students should meet in each subject. The curriculum also explains the connections to real world learning that students should be making. Students are assessed at key junctures to ensure they are meeting all learning standards. Additionally, for all students, community service and character education are also supported through curricular efforts.
We currently cover the following Brighton-area school district: Brighton School District 27J.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brighton District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum combines the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, research and media viewing. Students are able to read and view a range of different genres of books and works of media that help them build analytic skills and learn how to recognize point of view and authorial intent. They learn about literary devices and how literature is crafted, but also learn about how to use text features in non-fiction.
The Math curriculum starts with fundamentals in numbers, operations, patterning, shape recognition and measurement and these form the basis of students later operational, algebraic, and geometric abilities. Mathematics learning during high school focuses on building the skills of problem solving and reasoning to better comprehension and application of algebra, functional mathematics, and quantitative decision making. The ability to work with and communicate about quantitative data and use statistics to make decisions is also emphasized.

Chalk Talk: Independent Reading Strategies
When students read independently, they must keep track of their comprehension and note things that they find interesting and questions or misunderstandings—this can be done using sticky notes. A double-entry journal allows students to note important sentences or phrases and their responses to them. The think-pair-share strategy can be used again after students read. Teachers can also have students summarize what they read and use the “Question the Author” technique to help clarify what the writer was trying to articulate. KWL charts can be filled out before (what students already know about the topic and what they want to know) and after reading (what they learned, or the answers to their questions in the L column) and help students to return to the pre-reading predictions or thinking they had, which is crucial in making the before reading component meaningful. Teachers can provide older students with anticipation guides, which are beneficial because they cover all three phases of reading and can be used in all content areas.
