Keizer District and Curriculum
Educators at Salem-Keizer Public Schools combine the standards set by Oregon’s Department of Education and their creativity to provide students a quality education. The standards which are used establish a series of learning objectives and benchmarks to make sure that every student receives the same high quality education and is capable of work expectations at the post-secondary level. They call on students to do increasingly complex and analytic work as they progress towards graduation.
We currently cover the following Keizer-area school district: Salem-Keizer School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Keizer District Curriculum
Students are introduced to the reading curriculum at Salem-Keizer Public Schools from the beginning. In the elementary years they learn the different features of different genres. They learn how to find text features in non-fiction so that they discover that once they learn to read, they can read to learn. The students continue on, to develop an appreciation for reading by using a digital library which has various topics to catch the attention of any student.
Science, at Salem-Keizer Public Schools, begin by exposing children to science topics as cross-curricular opportunities. One educator has the students study penguins. The students learn about characteristics of these animals by graphing the height and weight, they also learn about their habitat and their life cycles. As the students mature they also learn to use different technology to study science. An example of this is would be a lesson that links the class to a weather station to see the importance of the topic they are learning about to the world.

Chalk Talk: Travel Activities
Whether going on a day trip or on an extended trip, children can often become bored. To help overcome these doldrums there are several ideas to keep in mind. One fun game is a geography game. One person names a geographical place such as Ohio, and then another person has to come up with a location that begins with the last letter of the place. This can continue for however long is desired. Another activity requires any old maps that may lay around the car, now that GPS is used by many. Have the child cut out an interesting outline, such as a state, from the map and, given a plain paper and markers, allow them to create a picture from this shape. Another fun activity requires the children to use a global map and whatever food items they may come across on the trip. Using the packaging from the food, have the children see where the food came from. Then have them take a string and stretch it from the location of origin to where they now. Then using the map legend they can see how far their food has traveled before they can eat it.
