Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Junction District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum provides students with their education in the literacy skills involved in all areas of learning. From reading strategies that help them recognize point of view in non-fiction to the ability to recognize the literary devices an author uses in a piece of fiction, students learn how to make meaning out of what they have read. They are also taught the skills to write in a variety of formats from professional to creative, and learn how to craft their own persuasive messages in writing. Media viewership and the use of technologies to make presentations are also skills gained.
The Science curriculum begins by teaching students how to investigate the natural phenomenon around them. By middle school, students have a solid basis in earth science, life science and physical science with which to take on topic-specific courses in high school. The expectations of 8th graders require that they develop an understanding of forces of energy, how organisms grow and how living systems interact.

Chalk Talk: Small Learning Communities
The effort at providing small learning communities within large school districts is driven by the goal of ensuring that all students are able to have the best education for their pursuits. Small learning communities can be built around any of a number of concepts: they can specialize in an area of learning like STEM programs or they can be designed to provide a different structure to the school day for students who need an alternative environment. Some small learning communities focus on career and high tech skills but they require that students demonstrate proficiency in their core subject learning as well. By establishing these small communities, students are able to find an environment that supports their goals and will also benefit from working with peers who have similar interests.
