Lake Oswego District and Curriculum
Lake Oswego School District helps create strong leaders for tomorrow by using the Oregon state standards and creating a strong curriculum which adheres to those expectations. The standards conform to the nationally-adopted Common Core Standards and similarly focus on developing a scope of knowledge within key topics of each subject. Students are taught a core of basic academic knowledge in Math, Science, English Language Arts, and Social Studies, all of which are supported by technology and presented in integrated manners so that students see the connections between the subjects they learn about.
We currently cover the following Lake Oswego-area school district: Lake Oswego School District.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Oswego District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Lake Oswego Schools believes that science should be a hands-on experience. From observing plants growing in the classroom to visiting a watershed to participating in an Invention Convention, the students discover science from an up-close perspective. This approach continues as students learn how to work in a laboratory setting and the process of designing an experiment, observing its results, maintaining lab notes, and communicate scientific findings.
Children build a love of reading from their first day of school. Young children learn about different authors and genres. They also learn that there are different types of books for different topics. In the elementary grades they have a Reading Night where they invite parents and children to share a night with an author. These students also participate in the Scholastic Reading Counts program which is an achievement program that helps build strong readers by beginning at the level that the student is at and building comprehension skills from there.

Chalk Talk: Building a Child’s Confidence
There are times when a child may know the material in a classroom, yet they do not have faith in their work or in their answers, or they do not want to ask questions because of some of these same reasons. There are things that can be done to build this confidence. Encourage the child to ask questions away from the classroom. Anytime that a child comes across something that they either know about or would like to know more about, encourage the child to talk, or question things. At the end of the school day, take turns with the child to ask and tell about the best and worst parts of the day. Another activity involves asking some of the child’s friends to visit. While they are there ask if there is any area of their school day that they had difficulty with. This shows the child that they are not alone in having questions.
