Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Commerce City District Curriculum
The standards based curriculum in English Language Arts begins instruction in kindergarten in reading and literature, composition and language. Students in the elementary schools study vocabulary, read fiction and nonfiction, and write for a variety of audiences and purposes. Over the years, these activities help students develop the analytic skills necessary to understand the purpose of different texts and to recognize literary devices used by authors. As students develop research skills, they also become able to evaluate the quality of information.
The Science curriculum helps students to see natural phenomenon in the way scientists do. They learn how to formulate and test hypotheses and how to communicate their observations and conclusions. Another component of the Science curriculum is its emphasis on technology and engineering, and other practical applications of the sciences. Students are also expected to see how technology, and other scientific knowledge, impacts society as a whole.

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of Cooperative Groups
When students work in cooperative groups more motivation is generated and the feelings of connection lead to positive group relations. Group members also learn from one another and more intellectual activity is created in contrast to independent learning. Positive feelings toward one another also help in combating isolation and loneliness and helping to build relationships and positive views of peers. Self esteem is increased through working with peers, and this increases with increased skill in working cooperatively. This method has also been proven effective with at-risk students and disruptive activity. The cooperative method can also develop social skills and empathy while at the same time providing an academic support system for low performing students. Groups of two or three should be the foundation of any cooperative program and give students the chance to become familiar with each task or skill before they are expected to handle more group members.
