Emmett District and Curriculum
The Emmett Independent School District values its students as our greatest resource. They believe that students deserve a safe learning environment. The school’s curriculum is rigorous but supportive. Teachers are given the opportunity to tailor their lesson plans to the needs of their students, so that all students can succeed, regardless of their backgrounds or learning needs. The hope is that students will become engaged in their own learning and take personal responsibility to become lifelong learners.
We currently cover the following Emmett-area school district: Emmett Independent School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Emmett District Curriculum
Emmett Independent School District’s curriculum stresses critical reading. This means that students read many types of texts, from non-fiction to novels and poetry, in order to challenge and build their comprehension and analytical skills. Students read for understanding but also are expected to delve below the surface and figure out the intent and true purpose of the writing. Through classroom discussions, students learn how interpretation takes shape and ways to communicate their ideas about the issues or text being discussed.
Students read hard copy and digital texts so that they will be prepared for challenging reading in the future. Students are also required to write analytical essays using evidence gathered from their reading. This strengthens their abilities to build rational, thoughtful arguments based on evidence, rather than just opinion.

Chalk Talk: Recommendations: Who to Ask?
Colleges tend to want an average of two recommendations for applicants, written by classroom teachers they’ve had either junior or senior year. These recommendations provide a clear portrait of the student’s classroom engagement, work habits, and attitude, among other things, so they are of great interest to admissions committees. So who should applicants ask for a recommendation? Teachers for classes close to the student’s future major are a no-brainer. This can be expanded reasonably; a student who wants to study law, for example, would want to provide a recommendation from a humanities teacher who can attest to the student’s writing ability. Many science degrees have large math components, so a math teacher can provide a useful recommendation. And students with an undecided major can simply choose to ask one humanities teacher and one math or science teacher to provide a good range of perspectives.
