Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelby District Curriculum
In Math, students learn concepts in much greater detail, acquiring a better conceptual understanding, mastery of procedural skills, and ability to apply the information to the real world. This curriculum meets both statewide and national standards in education, using realistic scenarios to teach children about numbers, geometry, algebra, and data analysis. Advanced Placement classes in Calculus and Statistics are available for high school students to earn dual credit for high school and college.
In English language arts, students learn vocabulary terms in greater depth as they use these words in various contexts, use textual evidence to support their responses, and read an equal abundance of informational texts and literature. After establishing the basic ability to read and comprehend more complicated texts, students are introduced to literature, both from around the world, including classics and mythology, and great works from renowned American writers. The goal is for students to be able to utilize all the strategies they learn in many texts and contexts.
