Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somers District Curriculum
Beginning in primary and middle schools, 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. Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and business education carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework being offered. Students are assessed using the Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessment in Grade 3-8 and 11. The district supports the career and college readiness initiatives for its students.
The arts component of the curriculum includes studies in visual arts, theater, instrumental music, and vocal music. In these courses, students learn not just the skills required to create or perform art, but also to examine and interpret art produced by others. Students learn how to design, innovate, collaborate, and communicate effectively. These skills are important not just for artistic expression but in life in general.

Chalk Talk: Who Are Kinesthetic Learners?
Learning styles or preferences group common way that people learning. While everyone has a mixture of learning styles, most people have a dominant learning style with the other styles used far less. The three main types of learning styles are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Kinesthetic learners often are known as “do-ers.” They are tactile learners who need to touch, feel, or experience information in order to fully understand concepts and knowledge. Kinesthetic learners love to manipulate the information. Tactile learners do not like to sit still, love science labs and building models. They are often fidgety and are good at schools due to their physical components. Kinesthetic learners enjoy taking field trips because the information comes alive through discovery. If you are a kinesthetic learner, you may have to make some adaptations from time to time in order to be successful in the traditional school setting. Try making flash cards, creating study games, or creating role-plays in order to help content come alive.
