Firebaugh District and Curriculum
The districts in Firebaugh follow an objective and standards-driven curriculum, the California Content and the Common Core Standards. These have been developed by looking at best practices nationally and internationally, ways to develop and frame the expectations for learning at each grade, and what it is that students need to be able to do in college and as professionals.
Math and Language Arts fall under the Common Core Standards as they are foundational subjects. Math uses the topics of numbers and quantities, algebra, functions, modeling, geometry, statistics and probability as a general framework where students learn basic skills that prepare them for the more advanced topics of complex numbers, vector and matrix quantities, equations and inequalities and many other areas.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Firebaugh District Curriculum
In Language Arts, reading and writing are emphasized but listening and speaking are also elements to the curriculum expectations. Students read literature and non-fiction, write about it and discuss it. These habits of reading and discussion help to raise the critical thinking, which is an intended outcome for the curriculum. Language development and the conventions of usage are also expected to be learned.
Science is organized around the development of a base of knowledge in Biology, Life and Earth Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. The process of scientific inquiry and the processes of formulating and testing hypotheses are also goals of the Science curriculum. Students are given many chances for hands-on learning and are exposed to a variety of specialized scientific topics in high school. Technology is a part of the curriculum in Science, but also as a part of the entire framework for learning. The technology emphasis is continuing to increase and students are expected to have a variety of opportunities to use, study, and innovate with technology.
