Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taos District Curriculum
The Taos Municipal School District has recently implemented the state approved and mandated Common Core Curriculum Framework across all schools in the district. Common Core is an evidence based curriculum with a focus on providing students with the skills they will need in the workforce and for further education. Currently Common Core is confined to the study of Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA); however the fundamentals of the English and Language Arts curriculum are also applied to other coursework including Science, Social Studies and Technology coursework.
In Mathematics, students are taught computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics and measurement. These skills begin in the earliest grades and builds in difficulty each year. The goal is for students to be mathematically fluent by the time they leave high school with the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math and math issues found in college mathematics and the workplace.
