Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Geneva District Curriculum
In Language Arts students focus on learning the key elements of literacy: reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. The reading of literature is balanced against learning informational text starting at the earliest grades. Students also learn how to write using documented sources and using an academic vocabulary. The use of formal English is also applied to other academic coursework.
In Math, students focus on a limited number of topics which are studied in intensive detail including computation, algebraic thinking, proportional reasoning, and statistics, all of which lay the groundwork for students to learn Algebra and Geometry in the later grades. The focus in all Math work is for students to develop mathematical fluency in core math skills which can then be applied to real life issues. The goal for the Math curriculum is for students to develop skills so that they know what math tools to use and when to use them.
