Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pocatello District Curriculum
The English Language Arts standards are designed to expand students’ vocabulary and ability to understand, as well as respond to, literature at an intellectual level. Students read, analyze and write about factual evidence found in fiction and nonfiction literature. Written and oral presentations are given in class and students engage in discussions about the texts they are reading. Independent reading is also a focus of the curriculum so that students can pursue reading in topics of particular interest.
The Math standards are designed to give students a deeper understanding of the foundation of math concepts, which will increase their ability to think critically and hence, solve mathematical problems. Students are presented with a smaller number of math topics while given more information from their teachers about why an answer is the answer. They are given daily opportunities to discuss math problems and what they understand about them and apply what they learn to solve problems in the real world.
