Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Farmington District Curriculum
Farmington Public Schools use the Common Core Standards. The schools strive to implement technology and character education in the curriculum. The seventh grade math teacher posts the standards and activities students are working on each week in pre-algebra and accelerated math on the middle school’s website. High school students are offered a variety of courses in English, math, social studies, science, health, fine arts, journalism, family and consumer sciences, foreign language, agriculture, business, and technology.
The district also has a selection of college-level courses and vocational classes that prepare them for specific careers. These are offered to students who have a strong inclination in a particular field but also encompass learning required of the core curriculum. For students seeking a more generalized education, the ability to gain exposure to different career fields through the electives offered is encouraged.

Chalk Talk: Reading Skills and Strategies
When students read aloud, teachers often have stopping points during which they ask questions to check understanding. A lot of time is devoted to the actual reading of the story, but it is essential that students perform activities before and after they read as well. The before part typically is skimmed over, but it is critical for setting the purpose of the story, activating prior knowledge, and adding the necessary background knowledge. When students read from basal readers or textbooks, there are typically many aspects of the text that stand out: the title, graphics, subtitles in large letters and different colors, bolded vocabulary words, etc. Students should certainly be given the opportunity to browse such features and make predictions about what they will read. Making predictions can help excite students, as they may be eager to read on to find out whether their predictions were correct or not.
