Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Fairfield District Curriculum
Beginning in primary and intermediate school, students explore a variety of academic content areas such as mathematics, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. In addition, students are exposed to physical education, library/media art, and music to enhance their educational experience. At the middle school level, students are working with a new program of 1 to 1 computing where computers are used in almost every class they take. The middle school curriculum helps to prepare students for the rigor of high school while catering to the unique developmental needs of this age group.
Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and business education carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework being offered for those students who meet the requirements. In addition to the traditional high school curriculum, the district also provides residents with an alternative high school/adult education program which focuses to a large degree on career-oriented skills.

Chalk Talk: Multiple Intelligences Theory: Kinesthetic Intelligence
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory was brought to light in the 1980s and shifted many viewpoints on the traditional idea of intelligences. Viewing intelligence as a variety of categories rather than one single general entity, Gardner chose 7 intelligences to meet his original criterion and later added 2 more intelligences to his list. The original seven include verbal/linguistic, mathematical/logical, spatial/visual, musical, kinesthetic, intrapersonal, and interpersonal. Kinesthetic intelligence means that you learning best by doing. Kinesthetic learners are good at performing actions and have good hand-eye coordination. They are usually good at sports, dancing, and enjoy creating things with their hands. Possible career choices include builder, dancer, actor, surgeon, and carpenter. Do you like to build things with your hands or manipulate objects? Are you gifted at being good at physical activity? If so, then kinesthetic intelligence may be your strong suit.
