Littleton District and Curriculum
The Little Public Schools follow the guidelines of the Colorado Academic Standards. The CAS provides clear learning objectives for each grade level in each subject and extends to areas such as physical education and health, the arts, career goals, and extended evidence outcomes. The goal is that students have a well-rounded education, with core academics emphasized and supported by learning expectations that will prepare them for life after graduation. With changes to the global marketplace, the curriculum has become more adaptable so that emerging technological skills are encompassed within the teaching framework.
We currently cover the following Littleton-area school district: Littleton Public Schools.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Littleton District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the skills of reading, writing and listening and speaking are taught in an integrated fashion. Students use each as a basis for reflection and analysis – students write analytic essays on literature they have read and learn listening skills that will help them listen through lecture style classes. Informational themes and short narratives are emphasized, giving students the chance to demonstrate comprehension.
The Math curriculum starts by providing skills in all topics of math so that students develop a range of problem-solving skills. Each grade level reviews previous grade skills and builds more complex skills. This is to prepare students for the math skills that will be used in high school. In algebra, students will be expected to master topics such as linear and quadratic equations and in geometry they will learn how to work with theorems and geometric proofs.

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of Community Service
Many high schools now have community service requirements as a part of their graduation requirements. There are many goals for this beyond teaching students how to become active participants of their community. Students get the chance to learn about the different types of community-based projects they can work on - visiting with senior citizens, building homes, participating in community cleanups, volunteering at animal shelters - and these opportunities often help them recognize career areas they may want to pursue in the future. It also helps students build project planning skills and gives them the chance to understand the different facets of community service - such as fundraising, event planning, logistics and see what areas they are adept with. Finally, it can form a lasting bond between a student and a local organization or a social goal that will be an important part of their lives.
