Denver District and Curriculum
The Denver public school system recently released a strategic plan outlining the fundamental teaching and learning needs for its instructors and students. Priority has been placed on providing teachers with valuable resources, helping secondary students excel, and ensuring each student progresses both academically and socially. Achievement of these goals will be measured by the Colorado Student Achievement Program.
The strategic plan aims to build the District’s literacy program at all grade levels through a new and rigorous Language Arts program. For grades K-5, the Denver Elementary Literacy Program has been established which provides three hours of instruction in reading, writing, and comprehension daily. Secondary students participate in a similar program, Studio Course, which provides reading, group discussion, and diverse writing style activities for 90 minutes daily. These programs in concert with an updated curriculum aim to strengthen literary accuracy and comprehension skills.
We currently cover the following Denver-area school districts: Denver Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Denver District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum at Denver Public Schools is focused on maintaining consistency throughout District classrooms by using rigorous research based materials to reinforce basic mathematical principles. The program for elementary schools is focused on teaching essential mathematical concepts with the middle school program emphasizes repetitive and frequent application of mathematical skills to diverse problem sets. At the high school level, students use specialized software to solve real-world problems in both individual and group settings.
The Science curriculum has established the following elements as key criteria for academic success: a focus on principles (big ideas) in earth, life, and physical sciences, incorporation of a research-based, constructivist approach to learning, teaching science as inquiry, and providing literacy strategies through scientific ideals and hands on learning. Students in grades 6-12 are taught a curriculum focused on the scientific principles of thinking, tools and technologies.

Chalk Talk: Critical Thinking Across Subject Areas
Within each subject, the curriculum specifies what types of critical thinking students will become able to do in their courses. In Math, students gain the ability to reason abstractly, proportionally and spatially as well as to employ logic. In Science, process-oriented thinking and testing of hypothesis are key facets of thinking which students develop. In English Language Arts, the ability to analyze, interpret and evaluate information are learned over the years. These critical thinking skills are essential for post-secondary academics and career goals which is why significant emphasis is placed on critical thought within curricular goals.
